Kinda an offshoot of the furbabies topic however we’re getting ready to welcome a new member into our family (I put the deposit down on him/her this friday) and it got me thinking about names. Now I’ve been a lover of names since I was a kid, always looking up names and making lists of my favorites. I even had 2 baby name books when I was a pre-teen. Names are fun to me. I’ve noticed a theme in my pet’s names, and one in the names I’ve saved for future real babies if I have kids.
My question to you is: How do you choose your pet’s names, and do they have a “theme” or something in common?
My pets all have “people” names. My cats are Loki,Scottie and Jimmy, My guinea pigs are Clementine and Daisy and my dog’s name is Miya. Our new puppy will have a “person” name as well.
I don’t know really how or why I chose these names, just went through a bunch until I found one that I liked and that sounded right. If I like a name, but forget it a day or 2 later it isn’t the right name for that pet. If it sticks in my head, it’s the one. Jimmy is the only one of those that I didn’t name. He’s technically our foster cat, but he’s with us permanently.
What about yours?
