Q: Is it wrong to name a new pet after an old one?
I adopted two kittens last year together & named them Starsky & Hutch. Hutch had to be put down 5 wks after the adoption. I just now adopted a new female kitten and everyone says I should name her Hutch or even Hutch2. For now, I've just been calling her Hutchie. Is it wrong to reuse Hutch's name? I'm not really worried about it being a boy name for a girl.

I think it is completely up to you. I would name another cat or dog after the ones I have loved for years in the past. It would be a happy rememberance for me. But, I could see how some people would not feel comfortable naming it after one that is passed....I think naming a cat or dog after one that is no longer with you is just like naming a child after a great great grandparent who is no longer with you.
