Do you have a new furry best friend in your life? If so, they are going to need a paw-some new name. The list of dog names below is inspired by the DC Extended Universe movies for your little superhero! Or if your pup is more mischievous, maybe a supervillain name is more suitable.

DC comics was founded by pulp magazine writer Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson in 1934. He introduced the world to superheroes like Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, and so many more. He also introduced iconic supervillains to the world. The Riddler, The Joker, and Lex Luther are some of the most awesome, evil, bad guys ever!

We’ve seen a lot of these characters come to life on the big screen, and there are plenty more to come. Fans are already excited for Shazam!, which hits theaters on April 4th, 2019! Whether your dog has the personality of a superhero, supervillain, or NEITHER, you can find a great name on this list!

Here are some heroic and villainous dog names inspired by the films of the DC Extended Universe. Don’t forget to share with your fellow DC fans!
