Dogs With Wonder Woman Inspired Names In Pop Culture
We are about to cross over from one feminine icon to another - from Wonder Woman to Oprah. No one can deny that Oprah is one incredible woman and inspiration. She has been motivating women for decades and has acquired cult status over the years. With her powerful voice and strong personality, she advocates equality, women’s rights and many other movements. She is an icon to many and a dog lover to boot.
She first met her dog, Sadie, when she was doing an event at Chicago’s largest humane no-kill shelter, PAWS Chicago. There must have been dozens of dogs there, but Oprah says that she felt an instant connection to Sadie. She wanted to take her home right away, but the editor at the shelter suggested that she wait a day or so to see if she wasn’t just caught up in a bout of puppy love (we have all been there). Oprah did as she was told, but the next day she still could not get Sadie out of her mind. The connection was real, and Oprah wanted her puppy. Nothing could stop her from going over to PAWS, not even a semi-blizzard. Most of us could relate to this, there is nothing we would not do for our little angels.
Oprah herself says that she was in love with the little runt of the litter and that she could not resist making the underdog the winner. And what a win! Imagine being adopted by Oprah herself! Their adoption story is a lovely one, but not one without some drama. A few days after adopting Sadie, Oprah decided to adopt her brother, Ivan, too. This way the two of them could keep each other company while Oprah did Oprah things (We don’t know what she does in her spare time, so we will refer to that as “Oprah things”).
Unfortunately, Ivan had parvovirus, and died in the emergency room a few days later. Sadie was distraught - and sick. She had contracted parvo too! It looked very bleak for the next few days and trying to save her was an ordeal. Anyone who has had to deal with parvo before knows how tough it is watching your dog go through that. At one point, everyone was prepared to give up. But not Sadie, she fought hard and survived. She is a dog Wonder Woman would be proud to call her own.
Wonder Woman Inspired Dog Name Considerations
Considering the motives behind Wonder Woman, it is no surprise that her first live-action film did so well at the box office. She was created by William Moulton Marston a psychologist and writer who modelled her after various feminist icons. When Marston created her during World War II, she was a source of inspiration during the war and on several occasions, she smashed the common damsel in distress trope. She gave many women the inspiration to stand up and fight for themselves. Little girls grew up watching her be a strong and independent woman, which modelled their own view of the world and of themselves.
Why wouldn’t you want to give your special canine a name that links back to such an inspiring character? Since her story has been around for so long, there are many characters in her universe. From hair-raising villains to useful allies, all the names on this list have some link back to Wonder Woman. Whether they were writers, actors or characters, they have something to do with the demi-goddess herself. Or maybe it is a name inspired by one of her qualities such as bravery, strength and honesty, either way, all these names have meanings. Does your dog think she is a goddess, too? Is she courageous and always looking out for you? Is his or her stance proud and strong? If you are a lover of the Wonder Woman films, then a name based on this theme will be perfect!
