40 Names for Dog
This is my first blog post; a list of Names for Dog, our lovable companion in Dragon Age: Origins. It's something that has been done before, but I find it fun & interesting to see what ideas other people have.
This is a lighthearted list that pokes fun at various things in and out of DA (within the confines listed below). Some are better than others, and some are fairly juvenile. It isn't a list of serious dog names; if that's what you're looking for then this blog post isn't for you. Please don't troll if you don't enjoy it.
The names are just for fun & all involve a reference to one or more of the following:
- Dragon Age
- Dog itself (i.e. in-game traits / talents / skill as a killing machine, or dog-related game items such as mabari crunch / kaddis / stick / etc.)
- Real dog behaviors / traits / etc.
- Dogs in pop-culture
- Where "–" is a link it points to a source of inspiration on Dragon Age Wiki or Wikipedia.

 Loghain's wife.
 Reads PeeKingDog (as per its link), not a Peking Duck dog. :)
 Vanilla Aveline, because sometimes it's fun to be cruel.
 Reads ZevransBackupDate, not ZevransBackUpdate ;)
I would have loved to see a cutscene in which Loghain discovers that the dog has the same name as his wife.
I think his reaction would have been priceless.
If you want to suggest more names in the comments, please follow the guidelines above.
The list will continue to live on, and be expanded / modified on my user page. I'm not very interested in posting most commercial pop-culture references (such as Scooby, Snoopy, Lassie, Disney dogs, etc.) on an updated list, beyond any exceptions that are already there. However, I might use a few of those if they're particularly clever and include more than one criteria. The first two criteria are highly preferred over the last two.
Please comment any dog names that come to mind!
