Ozzy Pawsbourne and Almost-A-Dog top this year's list of quirkiest monikers. Fido, Spot or Fluffy? For some peculiar pet owners, these names are just too traditional. Although "Bella" and "Max" currently lead the pack as the nation's most popul… more ›

My 2nd Papillon I named Manaba Aponi (called her Poni for short) A combination of Arapaho and Iriquois, Manaba means "war returned with her coming" and Aponi is "butterfly" So to me her name meant "war returned with the butterfly's coming". The Papillon I have now is Kipopo, a Swahili word for Butterfly. My Pom-mix is Kima, Swahili for Monkey.

I have two Chihuahuas, one male and one female, named Eros, the God of Love, and Psyche, who was Eros wife in mythology. I have an Australian Sheperd named Black Moon Lillith May, because there is an astrological term called the Black Moon Lillith, and she was born during a New Moon in May. And I have a cat named Libby because I'm a Libra.

I have two cats, one is named Mrs. Belle Beasley, I loved that doll. My other cat is named Matthew, he was named by a little girl who picked out names from the bible for all the cats born in Matthew's litter. Neat idea.

I've had many (too many) cats for years. This is the first pointed white semi-long hair one that I've had. He really looks like a lilac point Balinese breed and I felt he deserved a unique name. One day "Puffernuse" popped into my head - like the puffernuse cookies I've seen that are a creamy white with fainted tinted edges. It just lends itself to the baby talk he often hears. Only problem is my husband can't remember that name and calls him Pumpernickle and darned if he doesn't come to that name too now.

We started with a red Basenji named Shoshanah (which means Rose), whose mother's name was Rose. Her daughter, Lilah (Night) was black. Her son, Dalet (that's thee 4th letter of the Alef-bet) was the 4th born. Then there was Shaq who was born in Shaquille ONeal's rookie year — my husband often called him Shmucky or Shmuckers. And now we have Ely and Arlo. We just like the name Ely (instead of Robert as the breeder called him). And Arlo was named for the singer, Arlo Guthrie.
