How about "Gonnit", short for "Doggonnit"? You could also try "Pavlov". If you also had a cat, you could name it "Schroedinger". To add eccentricity to obscurity, swap the names.

I called mine Barkspawn! Due to the number of Darkspawn and I just thought it was epic XD

I tend to call my dog Wrex from the mass effect franchise XD


That! My "canon" dog's name is Wrex. Partly because I was thinkng of an iconic Polish dog named "Reksio" at the time, and that's how I got to Wrex with a silent "w". :P Henio0 (talk) 17:52, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

My first play through I just called him Dog, more by mistake than intent. Other playthroughs I had him named 'Rip', 'Lassie', and currently 'Angus' - seemed like a nice strong Ferelden name :P. Next time through, he gets to be 'Hafter'. LegionnaireScout 16:11, May 24, 2010 (UTC If I am anything other than a human noble, I call him Loghain.

Mine's called Rinty after the dog i grew up with :) I name him Murlock. It just seemed right I NAME him MPISKOTAKI which means in greek language "little biscuit" :P

I usually name my dog Kitty, or Bark Obama.Ser Derek of Highever (talk) 01:36, October 15, 2011 (UTC)

It varies depending on the origin. Human Noble: Nan Dwarf Noble: Trian Mage: Cullen For city Elf, Dalish, and Dwarf Commoner I'll randomly pick names like Rabbit, Snuffy, Pillow, or whatever silly name sticks into my mind.

So whats your favourite name for Dog? Shitballs.

Fa' Haren after the Dalish Dread Hound in the lore of the game. -J011Y_R063R

I'm still on my first playthrough, and named it Bandersnatch. At the same time, my brother's on his first playthrough as well and "so cleverly" named it Spike. Next run, I'm naming it ChristopherLee as an inside joke.

I name him Calyo, after my nephew (Calvin) and niece (Yolanda). If she was female, I'd call her Yocal. Bwahaha... May 01, 2010.

I always call my doggie Loki Rencol 17:11, March 15, 2010 (UTC)

Giradot <3 (soul calibur ftw) - Cl0u|)

"Bam" in memory of my beloved Red Heeler may he rest in peace, in every playthrough the mabari's name is always Bam also the mabari dog reminded me of him because it has the same color.Lord Anthonior 06:49, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

      Puppy is the name of mine, because I had a stuffed animal called Puppy as a kid :).

Haashmaluum. Because hell yeah.

Tsubaki, the camellia blossom.

Kiba. I'ts the name I'm going to give to my real dog when I get one...stupid housing rules...


Mack or Maximus. Once Odin (my character's name was Ragnar). Maura007

Always Ghost, because its the name of John Snow wolf in A Soing of Ice and Fire Fred

Snoopy. ^.^ Tinni (Talk) 20:11, March 15, 2010 (UTC)

I always call mine Rufus. He just looks like a Rufus (or possibly a Brutus) to me. -Vim- 20:18, March 15, 2010 (UTC)

Mine is either Barkspawn (someone else's invention) or just Barks. Presence 20:25, March 15, 2010 (UTC)

Hah, there was a thread like this a while back...mine are Konig, Fenrir and Cu Sidhe.

This web lacks proper search function, its hard to revive old topics.Rencol 06:40, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

I always call mine Beast or Cujo Madasamadthing 21:23, March 15, 2010 (UTC) Madasamadthing

Cujo XD My recent ones were Mr. Jingles. Hank. Gilmore(After ser gilmore), gregoir (after knight commander for my mage. XD), and Bear. I didn't really go so creative with the dog names as I did the warden's name, I didn't really use my mabari 'cept for lothering. 06:31, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

Do you know there is an addon allowing you to take dog as 5th party member? Rencol 06:40, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

Another funny names i have found on another forum: Dogmeat (fallout reference), Dogburger, DwarfMount, Furbag, Fleabag, AlistairJunior, Whinemachine and many more. Just for starting up your imagination :PRencol 06:40, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

Mine's called DAAAAWGY! Just for the Family Guy reference :) But on my first runthrough, I called it Toruk, because it's the name of the massive red flying thing from Avatar lol :')

I named mine "Kale" seemed like a medieval war dog name.

I've given the dog a few names, but the only ones I ever really cared for were 'Dog' and 'Genius.' Meridian Wake 09:50, March 20, 2010 (UTC)

Next time I will name mine Doggy DoRight ; ) Patch61 21:13, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

Huan (LOTR:Silmarillion reference), Fluffy (female mage) and Nugbane (Dwarves) John117XL 21:17, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

WREX. Game reference and a pun. Bonus.

In my human noble story I named him Trevor. In my city elf story I named him Nelaros after my dead fiance. Catie-Cat-13 06:50, March 22, 2010 (UTC)

Tamagochi in reference to the first electronic pet :D

I named my first one Warden and my most recent (human noble) one Ser Fluffy. Melisma17 21:54, March 22, 2010 (UTC)


Eggplant. Trevorish 05:41, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

: Funnily, I havent yet completed the game, yet have had the dog about 15 times (In RPGs I keep restarting as new chars and deleting the old till I find one I really like). My favs are "NibblesTheDestroyer, AnkleMauler, SavageStink, BiteyMcShitbrains, and OldFeller". I must admit though, I would see naming an ugly as hell attack dog after your dead fiance as more disrespectful than anything else :D but thats just me. 15:23, April 5, 2010 (UTC)


: I think it depends on how much you value your dog. I always have him in my party and value his skills highly. I see naming him after Nelaros as an honor. But I respect your opinion even if I disagree. On a completely unrelated note, how come the dogs are all male? Catie-Cat-13 15:38, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I wish there was an option to select male or female dog. I own a female Boxer/Lab mix named Savannah... and I've been tempted to name my DAO dog, Savannah. Meh, oh well. Amm879 16:50, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Ein, FarticusBringerofStench, and the ever popular Barkspawn.


:: To Amm, you have any aptitude with modeling software? Sounds doable for someone that does (which counts me out :/) 10:10, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

I dont know about any option to select male or female dog. But he is always refered as "he" and the way he marks his teritory shows clearly its male. There is a mod which adds penis to him, making him more "real". Rencol 10:43, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

I usually go with Dogmeat (not a fallout reference...its from Mad Max), or Mouse (from The Dresden Files)

My first playthrough - as with EQ, Vanguard, WarhammerOnline, etc - was dwarven rogue Yitzhakh (commoner in DA). And the first NPC cohort is Leske; a very dog-like companion....the leg humping variety. When the Mabari found me, he became Leske; and so has every Mabari NPC for every other playthrough.

My dog's name has so far always been Cerberus. Unoriginal? Yes, but it fits well enough. --Tyranno Ex 04:43, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

Draugluin for my Human Noble, Carcharoth for my Mage. Because Silmarillion werewolves are just so much fun, and it sounds much more imposing than 'Scrambles The Death Dealer'. Also, I just intensely loved the name Carcharoth from the moment I read it. 'The Thirsty Maw'. Really, is there a cooler name for a bloodthirsty canine companion? :3

When I first started playing I called him Shaggz for some reason, don't know why. lol. Now I'm thinking I might call him Wade ( Deadpools first name) or Howlett (Wolverines real last name) pretty kick ass names. - Shaggy86

I named my dog Dammit, Poof, Muffin, Mervin (robin hood men in tights), Teddy Salad (monty python), and Eric (monty python) KarlGambolputty 06:32, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

I named mine pwnin8r 2.0......... it's awesome having a robot dog. - blue0212

Did use who ever the person closest to the origins character was. Then read the name Barkspawn in one of the forums so been using that all the time now :)

I have used name like Sam(it looks likes Sam from lord of the rings), Huan from silmarialion, but i think my future dogs i going to be called Garm named after the dog guarding the entrance to the underworld in the old viking mythology. - PeterR

I always name mine Dark Bane!

After reading book "Cabal" i simply had to honor its author by naming my (virtual) dog after him ---> Clive BARKer :P Rencol 18:03, April 10, 2010 (UTC)


"Warden", "Denton", and "Barkspawn" are my top three. Barkspawn was a joke that somehow stuck and made a great dog name. Warden just sounds badass, and Denton was created while I was on a kick of Deus Ex. Works for me! :D Novawolf 05:40, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

LOL @ Novawolf. "Barkspawn"! That's cute! Hmm, "Warden" does sound like a badass name for a dog, though many of the NPC's call your character "Warden." I'm curious if the dog looks up, confused, wondering if they were talking to him or not, haha. Recently, I've been using the name Apollo. Meh. Amm879 17:36, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

Either I name mine Wolf, Maric, Ajax, or Brax. Two of them I got from a random name generator (because I'm unoriginal) and I only chose the other two because I needed a quick name. Wolf because... well, it's Dog, and Maric because my character's name was Moira, and I was thinking about buying the books for Dragon Age at the time, which center around King Maric. RheynaMahariel 03:21, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

I name mine "TheBitchthatpwnedyou" or Nyx in reference to the goddess. The Victorian Muffin April 11, 2010

I named my dog "doglas" because I am clever and awesome :) april 12

My first go through I named him Gas and the second time around his name was DEEOGEE (get it DOG) haha ya i know not that funny but was the name of one of my dogs growing up. Monty_Marine

I once named the dog Brian as a Family Guy reference --Thenorthernman 21:53, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

"Aengar" stuck since my human noble and her unquenchable lust for vengence. "My brother, last of my family, is lost? Darkspawn, this just got personal!" ;-)

Kaerendar 21:58, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

I theme name. Name my character Mars, the dog gets named Ares. Name the character Victor, dog gets named Tsetsang. Named the character Vivec, dog gets named Sotha Sil. --YokoFactor

My dog is always "Brutus". It the first name one that I came up with when I started playing and it stuck.

And lets face it he looks like a Brutus.

I named mine "Snappy", after my dog when I was a kid. I was going to go with "barkspawn", but I think it was already taken.Sg c paulo 07:33, April 14, 2010 (UTC)

I call mine Penis, so i can say, suck on that!

i call mine John Cleese, after the genius himself

I usually call it something related to astronomy: Mars, Sirius, Orion, Neptune, etc.

I always call it Vin Diesel

Sirius Black


I call mine Waldo or Mr G.

Mine is Trogdor :D


Mine was Killshank

Mine is Butkus; and I was disappointed that you couldn't name Schmooples or Wynne's hobblestick familiar (for those with Feast Day Pranks), because I would have named them Cuff and Link so I'd have all the "Rocky" pet homages. Sometimes when Butkus is tearing someone a new ass, I find myself singing the theme song, except instead of "Gonna Fly Now" it's "Gonna Die Now" -- A Mage Frustrated

Mine is Boomer, named after my grandfather's dog that passed wawy when I was little :(

Amigo, after my fathers dog.

Derf, after my dog. --rival_grace

Baxter- this is a reference to doctor kelso's dog in scrubs

Bear or Dr. Sniffadoodle (cause he went to college) - swampman03

Mr. Bubbles

Mines bhelen when i play a dwarf noble or when a human noble Rendon :D

I usually call my characters after Riders from the Inheritance Cycle. So for my Eragon it was Saphira, for Murtagh is was Thorn and for Oromis it was Glaedr

                  cat woman

I always call my dog Hades.--Thorulf Amell 12:43, May 1, 2010 (UTC)

I've called him Mangy in every origins but human noble. "He's not Mangy"- Allistair --Uliudo 16:52, May 1, 2010 (UTC)

I've called mine Dargon, take on 'dragon' or Drake, same reason.

I call mine Diogi. (D-O-G)

I call my dog Digit cause it sounds like a good dog name.

"Toadkiller Dog" after the dog/demon/thing in Glen Cooks original Black Company trilogy.

Truffles. Of course. Isn't that the only name for a fearsome guard Mabari?

I can't really remember all the names i've given to it, but here's the ones I do remember: Barkspawn, Bark (most common), Shartan (during my Dalish elf playthrough), Thaig (dwarf playthrough), Bite-a-Bit (most recent playthrough, Elf Mage).

Matt-256 12:18, May 9, 2010 (UTC)

Onyx, after my first dog may he R.I.P.

Well... I couldn't think of a name, so i nemed him Dog.

MRsinffs or tazAndyspam 13:38, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

I'm going to have to steal some of these at some point. Anyway, my human characters tend to name the dog "Rabbit", because of how often he hops around when you talk to him. For my elven and dwarven characters, however, I tend to look something up on websites that help with elven and dwarven names, so I have something that makes sense in their language. Despite Dragon Age not being tied to DnD whatsoever, it still makes the most sense to have them tie their pets to their culture, you know? Hitokiri Akins 03:23, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

Baezar. No clue how I found that name. --Faceshifter 09:15, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

I named mine Lootie because my aunt had a dog named Schnitzel and my dad called him lootie instead because he liked the name more. lol (pronunciation loot-e)

--Mine is Pepper, named after my 16 yr old mutt.--Freightshaker 17:38, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

Depends on my character and current mood :-) I think the first one was Spike. The latest one is Gordy (from a privat joke). --Boise66 19:40, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

I gave different name for each of the chars i made, but my main char dog name is Loki ( called after the nordic God of madness). Others are more common like :Shadow,Ghost,Jumper,Fleebag...etc. :D


I named mine Gram, after the sword with which Fafnir was slain. In the next playthrough I named it Fafnir.

My favorite dog name is Ruffles --Knight of Hope 04:19, May 23, 2010 (UTC)

Beefy nuff said

I named him Dog the first time because I'm generic like that. THe second time, I named him Calen after King Calenhad :D Aedan Cousland Theirin

I named mine Angie after my ex. Kind of looks like her. :D

`I have a tendency to always name my dog Poggs :)

First time round was Dogsmith, second round was Bosun. Although, that would probably be a better name for a Jack Russel terrier.

I tend to name mine after cuts of meat. So far I have Ribeye, Lambchop, Porkchop and TBone. :c)

I've named my Dog's; Zeus, Duke, Triton, Hades, Odin and Pup-Pup ^^ --Sencilia (talk) 14:39, May 30, 2010 (UTC)


Nero and Anubis

 =I've always named my dog Kijak. Just sorta popped into my mind on my first run-through. Ended up sticking with it.

-> I've named my dog "Spot" (as in the game : The Whispered World, Sadwick's caterpillar with supa power!)- KalintZ

On my first playthrough: TRex. On my 2nd playthrough: Garfield.

I started with a generic name for my noble and called him Spike also. But for my elf, I named him Sparkles just to be funny. Then I named my mage's dog Snowflake because my mage has all of the cold spells. I kind of name my dogs based on the type of character I am. I think, what name would this character call their dog. For my dwarf character, I call him Dia which means diamond. I figured, dwarves love stones and jewels, it fits. --Fantasyeve87 (talk) 21:29, May 31, 2010 (UTC)

I give my dog my name in real life. Also, if you want to name your dog after the Nordic wolf-god, name him Fenris (more accurate historically) and don't call him monstrous. What most people don't realize about Fenris' role in Norse mythology is that while he is the god of betrayal, he resents his role and is secretly optimistic about the success of humanity. He just hates the gods. Rellakan (talk) 22:12, May 31, 2010 (UTC)Rellakan

Ham, this is the first thing that came to my mind when I first met him :)

McDuff. From Shakespeare's MacBeth, of course.

I call mine Ellis,dunno why? -James Tabris

Let's see...I've named him Sparky (a la South Park)...Percival (for my snarky, brat of a human noble)...Toby (after our miniature schnauzer had to be put to sleep :( )...and my most recent playthrough it's Deg (a la the Pikey speak in Snatch). Ratchick (talk)

June 19, 2010 by Wesleysnowwolf I call my dog Qwib Qwib. Yes it is a reference to another Bioware game lol guess which one!

I'd just flicked through a book on Kelpie-Labrador crosses used by Australian bomb squads in the Vietnam War, and they all had awesome Roman names. I called him Cassius. - wandrew (talk)

The name of my dog usually depends on what origin I'm playing or on my character's personality. Sometimes I like to name him after a character in the origin story that meant a lot to the warden or some other notable name in the origin story. Sometimes I will just use Dog and the popular, Barkspawn. So heres the list of only a few of the names I've used. Human Noble: Hohaku, Female City Elf: Nelaros, Dalish Elf: Fen'Harel. Hohaku has been my favorite so far. I really like it.--TerynCousland (talk) 00:54, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

I called him Mange because Morg or one of the companions said mangy dog. Its gonna be Mange on all my play through's now..., I'm a creature of habit -fleabyte

I always name mine Pookie. He may be a Mabari, but he's still cute! ;) Lamiria (talk) 08:50, June 25, 2010 (UTC)

I was tempted to call him like 1 of my real dogs ( Ettore or Camilla....2 sausage dogs ) but felt such names are a bit humiliating for a mighty beast like that, and being a fan of anime called him Amon ( from the Devilman saga ). Always called him so.

When I go mage because of my love of Harry Dresden, I name the dog Mouse. Other times Bane. I love BarkSpawn though, will have to remember that - jmcan81145

The first time I played DAO, I named him Rabbit. The next two playthrus I named him Dawg. Ever since Darkspawn Chronicles came out, I've named him Barkspawn. Gruedragon (talk) 19:48, June 25, 2010 (UTC)

Mines Béla Lugosi- Paladin Of Guns

I named mine Potassium, simply because that's the first word that came into my mind I was trying to name him Archdemon but its doesn't fit, too bad.

I always name mine Mabari, because I'm creative like that.

I called mine Harvey.... my characters name is Aeryn... so its all from Farscape. :) coincidently Claudia Black is Morrigan...

My main names that I use are:

  • "Axel" - After Axl Rose from the band Guns N Roses
  • "Cash" - After good ol Johnny Cash

Those are the main 2 that I use. I have also used Bruno, Butch, and some other names. It all depends on my mood when I get to my dog. Emmalee (talk) 01:04, October 15, 2011 (UTC)

Rufus or Gratch in DA:O Rufio is DA2

I always call my dog K-9.

I just name him differently each time. In playthroughs past, I've used "Roland," "Bartrand," and one more that escapes me. Currently, I'm using "Felix." I just try to pick names that fit the setting.-- (talk) 17:09, October 15, 2011 (UTC)

I finally worked out my final set names, I have a habit of changing it, so here they are:

Human Noble - Thane, which was a title had something to do with nobility as well as some military significance.Nothing to do with Mass Effect or Skyrim.

Human Mage - Calenhad, as the tower is located there

Dalish Elf - Barkspawn, she romances Alistair, enough said

City Elf - Valen, after Elder Valendrian

Dwarven Noble - Mutt, can explain so much about him...

Dwarven Commoner - Salroka, meaning "friend" according to this wiki

Hawke - Ghost, yes Game of Thrones reference

So that's what's my dogs are called, sorry for the list --Xxellenmaysongxx (talk) 13:17, June 8, 2012 (UTC)

In DAO I just called him Barkspawn, I know its lazy but the damn that name is punny. But in DA2 for some reason I just out of nowhere named the dog 'Montague' maybe its because I'm a Shakespeare fan, maybe its because I like my puppy's sophisticated. But something inside of me loves the fact that the dog has that epic name. --TheRageMage (talk) 15:25, June 8, 2012 (UTC)TheRageMage

"Dog" for Mahariel, "Doug" for Cousland, and I'm thinking of "Ser-Bark-A-Lot" for any other. I liked AlistairJunior. --SylvanLore (talk) 16:41, June 8, 2012 (UTC)

Either "Trouble" (the name of my real dog) or "Fenris" my little wolf.--R0B45 (talk) 07:07, June 9, 2012 (UTC)

Wuffles if I'm playing a nasty character - Just for the irony. I've also used Barkspawn (I can't believe I never thought of that), SerWoofington or occasionally Loghain. Arl Howe would be too cruel (to the dog). TheTeaMustFlow (talk) 10:09, June 9, 2012 (UTC)

Hellhound, Carver, Satan, Lucifer and Raziel. -- (talk) 17:51, June 9, 2012 (UTC)Jak Darckner

Generally depends on my Origin. Normally I name my dog Lars regardless of whether or not I play a Human Noble, but sometimes I have mixed it up a bit depending on Origin.

  • Human Noble: Lars
  • Dalish Elf: Crusher
  • City Elf: Schweinhund (Means Pig Dog in German :p)
  • Mage: Ulfric (Named after the Skyrim character)
  • Dwarf Noble: Chewbacca
  • Dwarf Commenor: Harbinger
  • Hawke: Lightning (Yes, a Final Fantasy XIII reference whether anyone likes it or not)

Marauder 09 FoC cover I can make the Black Sun look like a Swoop Gang. 02:52, June 10, 2012 (UTC)

Inuki after the spirit dog from X/1999, or Lyoshe after my friend's dog, a pitbull mix with a similar personality:) LigerNull (talk) 00:03, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

All are stupid dog names except mine. -- (talk) 13:52, June 11, 2012 (UTC)Jak Darckner

Are you implying that *you* in fact are a dog? Huh. That would explain alot. EzzyD (talk) 17:57, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

Skittles or Mr. Beefy--JD (talk) 18:31, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

Named him Griffon on my second playthrough and the name stuck. If my warden can't have a mighty feathered beast by his/her side, he/she will have a mighty hound named after the pet he wishes he could have!! -- (talk) 19:18, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

I always used Russian names for my dogs. DAO Dog was "Alexei", and DAII was "Sergei". DA3 rolls around and there's a dog, it'll probably be something like "Anatoli" or "Mishka". Maybe "Gennedy", after the badass Russian general from The Bear and the Dragon. DavetheExile (talk) 21:40, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

I usually name my dog, Drizzit after the character in the books. My friend named hers... Mr. Fluffykins. Poor dog. Probably has self esteem issues GreyWolf84 (talk) 23:19, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

Bane or just Dog. All hail Darkside! (talk) 00:21, June 12, 2012 (UTC)

I've also started to name all my dogs "Kimba", named after my dog Kimba, who passed away 2 years ago. --Sencilia (talk) 13:40, June 12, 2012 (UTC)

Satan, Carver, Lucifer and Raziel are better names for a dog than all of yours. -- (talk) 16:22, June 12, 2012 (UTC)Jak Darckner

Mauly, Sunshine, Xephos, Honeydew, Lalna, Alistair...only joking i wouldn't.Phoenix96 (talk) 09:26, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

I call my DAO Dog Smokey after my real dog --Wardan Hellkite (talk) 11:09, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

I named mine after a badass Werewolf:GENN GREYMANE. My little bro named his Samwise (he's a big LoTR fan.) Daverwulf (talk) 13:52, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

DA:O would be Sam after my real dog...who is a wimp in real life hah... And the DAII mabari, Dracon. --SpectreAngel (talk) 15:08, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

I'm running out of names for my dogs. Among the many, I've had Harmless, Nibbles, Wrecks, Chewy, Paws, Lazy, Cuddles, etc. Shadizar666 (talk) 09:57, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

I named my dog "Fendorf" which means Grey Wolf in elven. Since my grey warden is a city elf I thought it was rather fitting. :) -- (talk) 18:18, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

Huh, thought I was being clever when I named mine "Dane," but someone else had the same idea. Upvotes for you, and the guy who named his "Hafter," my second choice. RShepard227 (talk)

I always name 'Dog' after one of my own male dogs (deceased or not). That includes Mac, Jabba, Archie and Aslan (mostly used, because I have a real connection with him :D).-- (talk) 07:34, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

I like calling my dog something funny, like my DA2 most recent one was named Arishok. I rememebr calling my Dalish Yoda, and the dog Darth Vader; I laughed when the codex said that Darth Vader came back to his master Yoda or something like that. :P Henio0 (talk) 10:09, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

My mage called hers Rhonin, my Cousland had named hers Thane, and my Daligh elf named hers Malfurion. During my 'evil' playthrough, my male elven mage (who I lovingly named Kaelthas) called his mabari Alistair, because he thought they both looked and smelled the same - though the dog was actually the smarter of the two. :p -- (talk) 11:42, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

My Cousland's dog is called Thane too, after the Shakespearean English version of Thegn, meaning "servant, attendant, retainer". It totally has nothing to do with Mass Effect or Skyrim, no nothing at all! Though, my Amell's dog called Calenhad, there we don't match... -- (talk) 14:36, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

Mine's name is Maneater. Although his name sometimes makes me sing that 'he's a maneater' song. That makes me sad.--Mrbackfist (talk) 14:30, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

First playthrough of Origins I called my dog, "Fucka". Even humans can't compete when it comes to canines in horniness. Guess it gives 'em character ;) Plus, I just love to imagine having to shout out such a name whilst in public, to call your dog to you; THE STARES xD (talk)

In Origins I named my dog Barkspawn, in honor of Penny Arcade's genius in that instance. In DA2 I named my dog Max, after my Warden from DAO. Zambingo (talk) 15:19, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

Just remembered that in one playthru, with my Mage I think it was, I named my dog Kitty. I pretended I offered the dog up as a compromise to the Desire Demon in Shale's DLC. Zambingo (talk) 15:23, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

I named my dog "Satan". No reason other than that was the first thing that came to mind.CWHellsmight (talk) 10:06, September 14, 2012 (UTC)
