Introduction

Mario is one of, if not the most, iconic figures in gaming history and he and his slew of friends and foes are responsible for some of the most enjoyable and memorable adventures in all of gaming history. The creation of veteran game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, as well as one of Nintendo's big name mascots, Mario's games are amongst the most well designed and popular in the entertainment industry. 1985's Super Mario Bros. is one of Mario's most well known adventures, and the game was so popular that it's often credited with saving the gaming industry from economic collapse during a dark period in the 1980's. The mustached Italian plumber is well known by gamers both young and old, as well as his brother Luigi and good friends Toad, Yoshi, and Princess Peach. Indeed, there's an absolute menagerie of names to choose from that'd make your pooch an ambassador of the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario's stomping grounds and home to a myriad of exotic and iconic characters.

Super Mario Bros. Dog Names in Pop Culture

Super Mario Bros. Dog Name Considerations

Dog owners who name their pets after Mario, or one of his many friends or foes, are likely dyed-in-the-wool gamers who have likely been fans for many, many years. Gaming culture can be considered to be one of Geek culture's more well known branches, and gamers are apt to name pets after these iconic characters in order to pay homage to something that's played such a massive part in their lives. Mario and his band of color characters' names become quite distinct the further along one delves into the Mushroom Kingdom's mythos,  so an owner who has named their dog Bowser has likely done so in order to avoid more common and potentially over used names. The Mario's franchise is also one of the longest running and oldest in all of gaming, so an owner who names their dog after a character from the Super Mario series could be doing so as a call back to the days of yesteryear and the halcyon days that have gone by. Ottumwa, Iowa is considered by many gaming pundits to be the gaming capital of the world and there is a fair amount of evidence that lends credence to that claim; in the city of Ottumwa, it's not too uncommon to encounter dogs named after various characters in pop culture and gaming, with Mario and his friends serving as a major source of inspiration in this regard.
