Introduction

It's a well-known fact that fans of The Walking Dead television series are incredibly devoted! You're quite likely to find them even posting warnings on their social media that might read, "Do not disturb for the next hour! The Walking Dead is on!" And why not? This isn't just your everyday, run of the mill zombie show. If you've followed The Walking Dead for any length of time at all, you know how endearing the characters are. In fact, you may have been incredibly angry at the Father for several months. You probably cried when those two characters were murdered by Negan. And you probably have already picked a favorite character in the latest lineup.

Walking Dead Dog Names

Some people just pick names for their dog at random, but if you’re reading this, then that’s probably not you! In fact, you have obviously giving some real thought to the process, and you certainly should. After all, a dog isn’t just something that’s here today and gone tomorrow. They’ll be around for awhile and you should give them a name that doesn’t leave you wondering why you picked it in the first place. There’s nothing worse than “name-regret”!

In choosing a name for your new dog from The Walking Dead cast of characters, you’re really paying homage to your favorite. Maybe that’s a character that’s still around, such as Rick or Michonne. Maybe it’s a memorial to a favorite who has already passed on, like Abraham or Glenn. Perhaps it’s the character you most love to hate, like Negan or even Father Gabriel, although Gabriel is certainly winning us back, isn’t he?

As you can see, we have already given you quite a few names to choose from, all of which are important to the story line. And we know it will be a great conversation when someone asks, “How did you come up with the name?”
