Introduction

He's the best there is at what he does, but what he does isn't very nice. James Howlett, aka Logan but best known as The Wolverine, is not only one of Marvel Comic's most famous and popular superheroes, but he's also one of the most instantly recognizable characters in all of fiction. Created all the way back in the 1970's by comic book industry legends Roy Thomas, Len Wein, and John Romita, Sr. the Wolverine first appeared in issue #180 of the Incredible Hulk's comic series as an antagonistic character towards the Jade Giant. Since then, Wolverine's character has changed and morphed drastically over the years, becoming a major player in many superhero teams such as the X-Men and the Avengers.

Wolverine Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Simply put, the Wolverine is one of the most iconic characters in fiction; everything from his over the top "V-shaped" haircut, to the "snikt!" sound his  Adamantium claws make whenever he brandishes them, to either of his iconic X-Men costumes (with his yellow and blue costume being referred to as his  Classic" or "Astonishing" costume while his yellow and brown one is generally referred to simply as his "Brown"costume) so much about Weapon X stands out. So if you were to name your dog Logan, Wolvie, Weapon X, or Hugh, we're positive many people would likely pick up on the reference to one of the most popular superheroes of all time. 

Conversely, if the popularity angle doesn't serve as incentive enough to name your dog after the Wolverine, consider this; of all the other X-Men that have been introduced over the years (barring the likes of Beast, Wolfsbane, Sabertooth, X-23 and Daken,) no other characters are as in touch with their wild side as the Wolverine is. Logan has expressed, in multiple ways and on multiple occasions, that he feels that he's more animal than man in the end. As such, Logan has a great respect for animals, including dogs and all other sorts of canine creatures. So consider naming your pet after Logan due to his environmental conscientiousness.
