Q: What's your pet's name and why?

Just curious today, I named my Dogs certain things and they are kinda unique to them. Liberty Belle is my first dog and I'm very patriotic being an Army Brat and now Army Wife so it seemed to fit. Then there is Lucy Mae which is kinda a country name and I'm from Kansas and tend to be a bit country. So my question is what are your pets names and why did you name them that?

My dog is named Linx. This name came from a crazy thought. He is a miniature dachsund, which everyone knows as a "weiner dog". With that in mind, I thought of hot link's (which are a type of hot dog). So I removed the hot and changed the way link's are spelled and came up with Linx!

Well, we have Burt and Earnie, because my dad was good friends with a guy named Earnie, and Burt because that was my dads first cat's name and because we like Seasme Street. And Sweetpea and Rosie because we name all of our dogs after flowers

My older cat, Dolly, was given that name at the humane society after Dolly Parton's song "Coat of Many Colors" and as it suited her, I never changed it. Our younger cat was named Leelu by my husband after a character in a movie. Also have a dog named Maddie and that name just came to us, it just seemed to fit her.

I adopted my callie from the animal shelter when she was 4 weeks old she is a calico cat so callie kay it was. she is now 5.

For my anniversary my husband 2 yrs ago let me get my first cocker spaniel she was so tiny but got into so much trouble i'd say listen her missy and missy stuck her name is missy may "may may".

i also at that same time bought a black male cocker who had a white chin and i name him maxwell sheffeild of the show that had fran dresher in it. we lost max after he and my missy had puppies he got out and was hit by a car. they had 5 puppies we named lil may, lil missy, molly, coco and then cappy(cappicino(the only blonde))who died at 2 days old. i was devasted and swore never to have another cocker. i sold all the puppies which was my oringal intent. but a yr later my mom seena ad for blonde cockers and new that i always wanted a blonde i told her NO but it took 15 mins for me to call her back and say okay pick me out one and we named him Cappy Lou(Cappicino) after the lil one we lost.

4 weeks ago we adopted a kitten white with grey spot on her head for my daughter for her b-day she liked the name bella so we name her anna bella.

after all this i get a phone call from the shelter i adopted callie from and bella from asking me to take in a abused cocker who was being surrendered to them at first i was hesitant cuzz dang i already got a zoo. but i caved her name was rags i just changed it to Abby-Gail just because its a pretty name and she deserve to be treated like a princess. i wrote a book im sorry...

My cats name is "Leona". Our 3yr granddaughter had an hard time pronouning her name. She started to call her "Ona" and everyone else has picked up on the name "Ona". Our granddaughter can now pronounce her name correctly.

When I got my cat Charlie from Catnap, my local shelter, he was 8 years old and I thought it would be too cruel and confusing to him to change it. If I would get a kitten I would name it Mozart if it was male. I like music and I think it is a cool sounding name.

When we adopted our dog the lady at the shelter had been calling her Tootsie Roll because she is nearly all black. I just changed it to Candy2 in honor of another dog we had years ago.

Ginny was part of the West Virginia puppy mill rescue. Plus, she almost went with a Virginia Rescue group before we got the paperwork straightened out. So since she was rescued from West Virginia and almost had to go live in Virginia, I named her Ginny.

Lizzi - named after my momma. :)
Rocco - he was named by the shelter. They wanted to give a little dog a big tough name, but it totally works for him.
Smokey - named after my best friend, who was nicknamed Smokey
Miles - named because of my husbands love for Miles Davis.

Apparently we like naming animals after people...

Daisy--since we had Lily, my husband & kids thought it would be cute to pick another flower
Previous pets....Buster (Labrador) because he was such a little buster! And, Snowball (rabbit) because he was white & round like a snowball
