Solomon Islands Dog Names in Pop Culture
As is true with every island nation, the Solomon Islands area is surrounded by blue skies and blue water as far as the eye can see. The Marovo Lagoon, a World Heritage area found in this region, encompasses 700 kilometers of beautiful blue water and is the longest saltwater lagoon in the world. Why not celebrate this aquamarine beauty and name your dog Blue? Not only is it a perfect dog name that can be used for male or female dogs but it truly embodies the Solomon Islands. To add to the ideal nature of this name, it is also the name of a very famous dog. The dog, Blue, has been capturing the hearts of kids for decades now on the cartoon Blue’s Clues - that’s right, Blue is a cartoon pup!
Blue’s Clues is a show on the TV network Nickelodeon. Blue is a female dog who communicated with the humans on the show by barking to help solve puzzles. She leaves paw print clues around the house to help guide the viewer and her owner, Steve, to figure out what she is trying to communicate - talk about a smart pup! Your dog named Blue will hopefully be just as smart and playful as this popular dog!
Blue’s Clues was a trendsetting show as it made kids interact with the show in a more one on one manner. Rather than just sit and watch a show, kids shout out the answer to the puzzle, telling Steve where Blue left the clues. Blue is also a good role model for kids, favoring coloring, reading and listening to music over all other activities. After over 160 episodes of Blue’s Clues, Blue went on to make a few movies, music videos and extended shows before retiring (although episodes are still often played on TV). While Blue was originally supposed to be an orange colored cat, a happy Blue dog is a much better option!
There are a few other famous dogs that relate to the Solomon Islands as well. Clownfish are quite popular in the waters around the islands and everyone knows Nemo, the lovable Disney fish but did you know Nemo was also an important hero dog in the Vietnam War? There was also Sinbad the Sailor (Sailor being the oceanic name here) who was a dog member of the US Coast Guard, helping the crew during World War II. Talk about some powerful pups!
While a famous dog has yet to descend from the Solomon Island themselves, it is surely only a matter of time. However, until that happens, there are plenty of Solomon Island dog names to choose from and also several famous dogs to be your pup's Solomon Island role model!
