    I am currently looking to get a dog but i want to give it a cool name maybe give him a Transformer character name my choices: Prowl, Frenzy, Ravage, Ramhorn, Blitzwing, Magnus, Rodimus, Hound, Brawn. Have any of you ever named or will name his pet dog/cat from a Transformer character? And what do you think of those names? Unless i missed a few ones names that makes. In my point of view Prowl, Ravage, Hound are more realistic and even Rodimus. Any ideas?

    Magnus is a badass name. Not just for pets, but people, too.

    Naming a cat 'Ravage' is almost cliche by this point in time. Naming a dog 'Hound' seems... redundant.

    If the dog turns out to be portly, you could name him Landquake. :D

    I've currently got corn snakes named Prowl, Jhiaxus, Blurr and Primus along with a Texas rat snake named Mirage. I've also had various hamsters over the years named after various TFs (and one named Quintessa). I think using TF names for pets is awesome, though I personally avoid names that are really specific to that TF and make no sense for the animal. Naming a cat Laserbeak or Astrotrain, for example.

    I'd go with either Magnus or Rodimus for a dog.

    If he doesn't dispense any mercy, call him Straxus.

    I agree. I also wouldn't go with Ravage because Ravage transformed into a type of cat. Blitzwing and Frenzy are some pretty crazy and cool names though.

    Prowl would be an awesome name for any kind of dog. Go with that.

    I'm really surprised no one's mentioned Bruticus for a dog's name yet. Doesn't Hasbro have one as a pet mascot as well as that one Bruticus as a monster three-headed dog Transformers toy? I definitely want to name one of my dogs (in the future) after my favorite combiner; already cleared it with the fiance/wife. XD

    Wolfang, K-9, Rampage, Clampdown, Steeljaw, Snarl, Overkill

    Those are the first choices for a dog that pop in to my head

    Sorry, named my beagle not after a Transformer; but after an Ewok...
    His name is "Wicket".

    Definitely better than what he came with... "Nike"...
    Who names a pet after a shoe company?!?!

    You know what the best Transformers-based name for a pet is? Yep, that's right.

    ERECTOR.

    How about Buster? Good dog's name, but Masterforce reference ftw.
