What is the name of your pet?

...and how exactly do you name them??

so my mom just bought a puppy from a breeder. a Havanese. similar looking to the following pic:


now, when i was a kid and even now i seem to be the one to name our family pets. i named all my pets throughout life. never really had a rationale or reason just came to me even if i never actually saw them.

so this new puppy is female and will be born this week and ready to take home in 2 mos. she asked me to think of a name. hasn't come to me yet...

so how do you name your pets (if not already) and what are their names and species?

Re: What is the name of your pet?

Had 4 Yorkie's with my ex-wife - Hugo, Cleo, Lucy, and Rita. Down to just Lucy and Rita now, they're both 14 years old. Wife had 2 cats when we got married, Fozzie and Kermit. They've both passed away since. No reason for any of the names except when I named the Yorkies, I wanted them to have THEIR NAMES be only 4 letters.

Re: What is the name of your pet?

Our first dog is named Pookie. We didn't name her, she had the name from a previous owner that decided not to keep her and we kept the name since we liked it. She's a Japanese Chin/Shih-Tzu mix.

My new puppy Pekingese is named Pebbles. I don't really like human names on a dog and like cutesy ones.

Simon, because it just seemed to fit him after I got to know him a bit. And it was better than Sparky, the name the Animal Rescue League gave him.

Re: What is the name of your pet?

My kids named the dogs when we got them 10 years ago, so nothing too original

Buddy and Emma

Re: What is the name of your pet?

Got my dog from the shelter, and they named him Tank. Didn't like that, so after getting to know his personality a little, we named him Waggly because he wags his tail like crazy when he's happy.

Re: What is the name of your pet?

My cat is Shadow (most frequently called Buddy, though). We also have Miss Kitty (Missy for short) and Bug (Buggle, Bugabug) in the house.

The ferrets are Casper the Friendly Ferret, Julio Iglesias (he's even friendlier), and Cecelia Wee Beastie (who is a psychopath).

The snakes are mostly named after Xena characters.

Mei mei, a boxer.

Jack, The Destroyer of Toys, a yellow lab/rottweiller mix.

Jack is, well, Jack. He earned his title by destroying a few Kong and other supposedly "indestructible" dog toys. Mei mei was May when we rescued her, but soon became Jack's cute little sister.

Re: What is the name of your pet?

My cat, Snatch.


When I was in college one summer, me and my roommates found her under a house we were renting. I didn't want to keep her but they did. They were trying to think of names and I jokingly suggested Snatch, and it stuck. Since I was the only one that took care of her, I ended up keeping her at the end of the summer.

We have two Golden Retrievers.

The first was named by my daughters. His name is "Scooby".

The second was named by me. His name is "Fenway". Fenway's command to sit is "Fenway, park".

I got my German Shepherd from a rescue facility. His name was Talon, and it still is.

I've never been an animal person but caved to years of nagging from the kiddos. This is Copper, a 5 month old long haired Dachshund.
