Japanese Dog Names: Sumo Wrestlers

A list of names of famous sumo wrestlers can be found here http://japanesedognames.blogspot.jp/2012/03/w.html

Again, these are names for male dogs, and are great for pedigree names when registering your dog with a Japanese registry.

I grew up in an era when the sibling Yokozunas (grand champion) Takanohana and Wakanohana, and the Hawaiian Yokozuna Akebono, were in their prime. I still remember the last, and 22nd, tournament Takanohana won. He tore up his knee in a defeat, and probably should have quit the tournament, but Takanohana in his usual stoic and unyielding manner showed up and brought down the house. I even managed to find a clip of the tournament on Youtube.
