The Marvel Comics and Cinematic Universe are full of inspiring characters. For example, there’s Tony Stark aka Iron Man, a brilliant scientist and philanthropist. Then there’s Loki, a trickster villain inspired by the Norse god of the same name. Which of these larger-than-life personalities do you see in your puppy? Let’s move on to the list of Marvel dog names.
Marvel Dog Names – The Avengers and Other Superheroes
If you’re a Marvel fan, you probably have your favorite superhero. But what if their name doesn’t go well with your dog? Here’s a full list of known and beloved Marvel superheroes you can name your good dog after.
- Ant-Man (or his surname, Lang);
- Black Widow (or Natasha);
- Black Panther (shortened to Panther, or T’Challa);
- Blade (or Ronin);
- Captain America (shortened to just Captain);
- Doctor Strange (or just Strange);
- Echo (Maya or Lopez sound nice too);
- Falcon (either Sam or Wilson);
- Hawkeye (or Clint for males and Kate for females);
- Hulk (or Bruce if you prefer it);
- Iron Man (we recommend either Tony or Stark for a nicer ring to the name);
- Quicksilver (or Pietro);
- Spider-Man (Parker sounds nice);
- Scarlet Witch (or just Scarlet or Wanda);
- Wasp (or Van Dyne);
- Warbird (or Ms. Marvel).
As you can see, the real names of certain characters are better choices for Marvel dog names than their superhero names. There’s a lot of room to play with their different nicknames and surnames, too. This means you get at least 2-3 name ideas inspired by each superhero!
Did You Know… 🔍In the Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers, there’s a frog version of Thor, called Throg. He used to be a human named Simon Walterson. He even has his own, frog-sized hammer – Frogjolnir – which is a transformed sliver of the real Mjölnir. If you’re looking for a funny Avenger-inspired name for your pup, we recommend Throg!
Marvel Dog Names – Villains and Antagonists
Not all dogs are good boys and girls – some have a little bit of villain in them. And that’s okay! If your dog is more of a troublemaker, you might want to consider one of these marvelously villainous Marvel dog names.
- Aldrich (or Killian);
- Burch (or Sonny);
- Corvus (or Glaive);
- Ebony (or Maw);
- Killmonger (or N’Jadaka);
- Proxima (or Midnight);
They all sound badass, don’t they? And if you call out ‘Thanos’ or ‘Loki’ in the park, you’re sure to turn some heads.
Sidekick Marvel Names for Dogs
Our beloved superheroes wouldn’t be the same without their sidekicks – and neither would this list of Marvel dog names! Here are some of the most iconic Marvel sidekicks (and a few other characters) to help you choose the perfect name for your furry friend.
- May (or Melinda);
- Ned (or Leeds);
These names are all unique-sounding. If you’re looking for something a little different, these might be the perfect choice for your good boy or girl. ‘Happy’ is obviously a name for a cheerful dog, while ‘Foggy’ will suit one with a foggy coat.
Editor’s Note 🪶There’s also Lockjaw, a giant dog appearing in The Fantastic Four comics, who was the loyal pet of the Royal Family of the Inhumans. He once accompanied Ben Grimm, also known as The Thing. Doesn’t Lockjaw sound like a badass sidekick name for a dog?
Dog Name Ideas Inspired by X-Men
The X-Men are a team of mutants with superhuman abilities, and they have some pretty great names. We decided to list them separately because there are so many characters in the series! Here are some Marvel dog names inspired by them.
- Professor X (or Xavier);
You can name your dog after any of these mutants, or even mix and match names to create something unique. For example, what about ‘Gambit Rogue’? Or ‘Storm Angel’? The possibilities are endless!
Dog Name Ideas Inspired by Marvel Comic Books
Most of the above names are taken from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But what if you’re looking for something a little more unique? Here are some names inspired by Marvel comic books that haven’t made it to the cinema.
- Beta Ray Bill;
- Squirrel Girl.
Who knows, maybe your dog will be the next big superhero – or villain! – in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Names for Dogs Taken From Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy
We decided to list most Guardians of the Galaxy separately because, let’s face it, these films are awesome. And the characters are even more awesome. The other lists would have been too long, had we included all of these in them. Here are some Marvel dog names inspired by the Guardians and their antagonists.
A dog named ‘Rocket’ is sure to be a hit with Guardians of the Galaxy fans. If you want something a little more unique, ‘Star-Lord’ or ‘Yondu’ might be perfect for your pup. We bet you’ve never met a dog named like that before.
Have You Found a Marvelous Name for Your Dog?
We hope you enjoyed this list of Marvel dog names coming from heroes, warriors, soldiers and villains. If you like DC Comics, too, you can also consider naming your pet after Batman or another character from the universe. Besides, all the names we’ve listed could work equally well for a cat. So, if you have multiple pets to name, enjoy the dozens of cool ideas.
