Introduction

There are actually quite a few bands, books, and comic characters that are tied to the phrase "The Runaways." We're going to do things a little differently this time around, doing our best to pay homage to some of the more popular agents of Pop Culture that might fall under "The Runaways" banner; if you're a fan of Marvel Comics' series of the same name, we've got you covered. If you're a fan of the 2010 The Runaways biographical film or the all-female band that inspired it, we've also got you covered. If you're an avid Megan Rix reader, we'll discuss some of her books here too. Pardon the pun, but there are just too many Runaways to keep up with!

The Runaways Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Due to the sheer number of projects that fall under "The Runaways" banner, there's probably a lot of you that are familiar with at least one of the musical acts, shows, or books that fall into that category. The most famous band that used "The Runaways" as their moniker made a slew of hit songs back during the 1970s; songs like "Cherry Bomb" and "Queens of Noise" made the girls icons and legends of Rock and Roll in their own right. If you're a fan of this particular band of Runaways, you could name your dog after a song or album of theirs to show your support. 

There is also a myriad of books, plays and films that are linked to the phrase "The Runaways." Ex-United States soldier turned acclaimed writer Tom Clancy wrote the Net Force Explorers line of books. Runaways was the name of just one of his many entries into that series. There's also the 2010 biographical film that's largely based on the Rock band we discussed earlier. Then, there's the 1987 children's book The Runways; this story details the exploits of two young children who happen upon a large sum of money and run away to try and start life anew. These are just a few of the many, many pieces of art and media that are related to the concept of a runaway in one way or another, allowing for the consideration of dozens of names for your dog!
