Introduction

The television show Supernatural is a long-running popular series depicting the lives of brothers Dean and Sam as they "hunt" down ghosts, demons, and otherworldly beings. Dean is a loner. He idolizes his father, who gave his life for Dean. Dean is down-to-earth, loves a good cheeseburger, and is mechanically inclined. Sam was never meant to be a hunter like his father and his brother - he was attending law school at Stanford when Dean came to him for assistance in finding their father. Loyal to each other and to their father's memory, the brothers operate as a team. They may fight, but they never permanently part ways. A pet parent will find a variety of names available for their dog to honor a love of this television show.

Supernatural Dog Name Considerations

Any dog can have a "supernatural" name. You might consider naming a large dog "Monster." A Rottie or Doberman Pinscher might be named "Demon." Dogs have been linked to the supernatural as well as mythology many times throughout history. Greek mythology told the story of Cerebus, the three-headed dog that guarded the entrance to the Underworld. Cerebus was a frightening dog, and Hades - the king of the Underworld - was his master. Some stories have him outfitted with lion claws and a serpentine tail. 

The Mauthe Doog (also known as the Moddey Dhoo) is a legendary dog the size of a calf that haunts the Peel Castle, located on the Isle of Man (an area between Ireland and Great Britain). This black dog became so commonly sighted that most of the guards at the Peel Castle often ignored him. However, one spooky tale relates that a drunken soldier walked down a hall to confront the ghoul and died three days later. The Okuri-Inu is a demon dog from Japanese mythology. He resembles a dragon. The Cadejo originates in Central America; one demon is all-white, and the other is all-black. Legend holds that people who speak to the dog will go insane from the encounter. The Chinese speak of the Tiangou, a dog who ate anything he could reach, including the sun. 

While the television series Supernatural has not featured a regular dog, Sam Winchester has had a couple of canine friends that he was eventually forced to rehome due to his occupation. In addition, black dogs traditionally forgo negative events. The hellhounds on the show are black, and in "Rising Son" from Season 1, as the pair tackle a wendigo, they frequently encounter a large black dog.
