Introduction

The Handmaid’s Tale is one of those novels that become more relevant as the time passes. Set in the dystopian future in the Republic of Gilead, a totalitarian state in present-day New England, the story follows the adventures of the handmaid Offred, who got her name because her master is Commander Fred. That naming convention for handmaids is supposed to showcase their servant status as merely slaves to wealthy men who cannot have children with their wives. The novel and the Hulu series explores essential themes of modern slavery, the patriarchal society, and the will to be independent and have your voice heard even in the toughest of times.

The Handmaid's Tale Dog Name Considerations

If you are a proud owner of a lovely Malinois, you might consider naming them Max, after the brave dog from the movie of the same name, and the actor Max Minghella who plays Nick in the series. Nick is also a fantastic choice for a brave and kind-hearted doggo who would do anything to protect their family and friends. 

However, if you would like to honor one of the handmaids from the book or the show, you can take their naming convention and name your dog Of[your name]. If that does not sound appealing to you, you can use their real names as inspiration for your brave little doggo. Try June, after the main character, or perhaps Janine, one of June’s friends and the sweetest handmaid in Gilead. Another fantastic character is Emily, a woman who used to be a molecular biology professor but is now forced to be a handmaid who despises her masters and attempts to exact her revenge on what they did to women in the USA.

Even though the commanders in The Handmaid’s Tale are bad guys, there is one who helps handmaids escape Gilead and emigrate to Canada, and that is Commander Lawrence, whose name can be your doggo’s new moniker!
