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?

I named my Irish Setter Gambler--(Harrah's High Roller). He was my husbands dog and my husband likes to gamble--he would stay at Harrah's Casino in Vegas.

Some of our pets are named just because we like the name.
thers had more meaning. Our husky/lab is named Rontu. Our family was reading the book, "Island of the Blue Dolphin" and the male wolf/dog was named Rontu. So it seemed appropriate that we name our dog Rontu.

Our cat Babs was named because I think she really is a monkey. So Babs is short for Baboon.

Cia, another cat was abandoned on the road. My daughter and her 2 friends found her on the road and said that all 3 would take care of her. Since all the girls are horse riders, they call themselves Cowgirls In Action- hence CIA.

Our previous pet Stardust chose her name. We had narrowed it down and couldn't decide. We wrote the names down on paper and let her pick the paper she wanted.

Casey, our liver spotted Dalmatian was named after O'Casey, who was a dog we took care of in New York.

Our dogs name is Nala, because at the time my son's favorite movie was The Lion King. We kept our cats names they came with because they were all older when we adopted them and had had their names all their lives.

Twinkle was my cat's name when I adopted her & I kept it. It really suites her. My parents have 6 cats that we named though. Cali- because she's a calico. Buddy-because he's a sweet lap cat. Sparky- He has long hair that sticks out by his ears & it looks like he's had electric shock. Blackie- because he's mostly black. Howie- because he has a loud, howling meow. Last but not least is Mimzy- we wanted a name that was kinda different but cute sounding. We also think it suites her.

My cats- My son named Pepper and Wild, though I helped with Sage. Amber was all me.
Sage-has sage colored eyes

Pepper-is black with specks of white on her throat ( I wanted Angus as in Black Angus or ACDC's Angus Young)

Wild- looks like a lion with a mane (If I had named her she would have been Ginger to go with Sage and Pepper, plus she is the color of ginger.)

Amber-Amber eyes (I named)She's still considered a stray, but one never knows.

Katt- who is now deceased was an orange tabby named after my favorite actress' movie cat- Katt (Breakfast at Tiffany's)

Shadow-also deceased cat was a tiny black kitten that that we found hiding in the shadows of the bushes.

My dog
Max- came named Max and I left him that way in honor of my last Max. Whom was named Max and his sister(my sister's dog) was name Maggie. They went together.

Birds-
Ocean was blue
Jade was green

Hermit Crabs
Big Blue lived in the big blue shell
Brownie lived in (you got it) the little brown shell

Suzuka, Miki, and Akane all have Japanese names because I lived there for a year in college and wanted me pets to have names that reflected my experience. Perdita was a found dog, and since Perdita means "lost" it was kind of fitting. Namir's name is Israeli and means "leopard". Since panthers are black leopards, and Namir was feral, I thought it fit him. Gabriel's name was because he's so vocal, and Gabby is a nickname for Gabriel or Gabrielle. I just liked the name Rhys for a red-headed little kitty.
