Introduction

Voltron is a classic giant mecha anime from the 1980s. The Voltron franchise shares a number of similarities with the Power Rangers franchise (with both shows featuring a group of young, space-faring heroes who pilot giant animal themed robots - all of which can join together to form an even stronger super robot), but it is also very distinct in its own right. Ask most 80's kids what their favorite show was from back in the day and a large amount of them will likely count Voltron among their top 5 favorite shows. Voltron: Legendary Defender is a Netflix sponsored reboot of the series that's garnered much praise and acclaim since its debut in 2016.

Voltron Inspired Dog Name Considerations

A strong reason that someone might consider naming their new canine addition after a Voltron character would be if they were big fans of the original 1980's cartoon. That show was a huge part of many Japanese and American viewers' childhoods, likely inspiring them to introduce the show to any children that they've come to know (possibly even via old VHS tapes). The old school Voltron show also featured breathtaking animation and a number of gripping storylines - quite a bit more than most were expecting from what some might consider to be a "kids' show." Should you name your pet after a Voltron character - even if you specifically limit your choices to the 80's show - you'll have a plethora of names to consider. 

If you're a big fan of Voltron: Legendary Defender, then you also may want to consider giving your pet a Voltron inspired name; a number of characters from the original series are prominently featured in the reboot while others are entirely new! We mentioned before that Voltron: Legendary Defender has been praised since it first debuted on Netflix in 2016, but we didn't really hit on why. Suffice it to say that if you're a fan of intricate storylines, well written characters, and stunning action sequences (as well as Avatar: The Last Airbender), then you'll likely love Voltron: Legendary Defender. Names like Pidge, Lance, Ryou and Lotor are just a few of the unique dog tags you can consider as you work with this theme. And, of course, there are the names Bae Bae and Olia!
