The Terminator Dog Names

When it comes to science fiction franchises, only a select few have risen above the acclaim of The Terminator. Not only did it introduce the world to great sci-fi concepts, but cemented the acting career of Arnold Schwarzenegger and more importantly, the directing career of James Cameron, who was also a key part in writing the early films as well. Without it, not only would the film world be devoid of numerous action and adventure classics, but fans of pop culture would be without now-classic one-liners like “Hasta la vista, baby” and “Come with me if you want to live!” Plus, considering the wide range of characters and their often iconic names, it makes the perfect film fodder for dog-naming.

The Terminator Dog Name Considerations

Coming up with the perfect Terminator-themed dog name won’t be easy, but at least it will be easier than avoiding the folks at Skynet. For the easiest path to the right name, start by compiling a list of your dog’s most identifying traits, from their personality to their breed type and even their quirks — this will act as a quick reference guide when scrolling down our list of names and descriptions.

For instance, if your dog happens to be Austrian (like the actor himself), such as an Alpine Dachsbracke or Tyrolean Hound, then the names Terminator, Arnold and Schwarzenegger would all be perfectly suitable choices. If you have a supportive dog that is your roommate and best friend and happens to have super goofy hair, then maybe the names Ginger and Ventura would be more appropriate. For a dog that seems to have intense awareness of everything going on around them, then the names Sky (or Skynet) or Cyberdyne would be good fits. 

If you’re having trouble figuring out which direction to go, try isolating your favorite iterations of the franchise, from the films to the comics, then choose characters that reflect your dog’s personality and narrow down the list from there.
