Pets names?

Today I was wondering about pets names...

If you have pets what are thier names?

What are the strangest/funniest pet names you have heard?

If you are planning to get pets in the future have you already picked out pet names?

Had to reply to this one...cuz I think our dog had the oddest name. lol.

I have a dog right now, his name is Miko, only one XH would agree too, but it fits cuz it means, Child that Watches, and he is a nosy dog.

When I was younger we had a dog named Prince (we said Princey)...I thought that was his name, but come to find out it's actually Prince Menehune. But that's not the weird one

The weird one...he was a Yorkie named Nugget. We're still not sure HOW he got the name. My brother wanted to name him Pepsi (cuz he loves Pepsi), Grandpa wanted to name him Bullet (cuz of how fast he ran), but not sure HOW we came about to Nugget....maybe like a chicken nugget cuz when we got him, he was TINY!

I've always wanted a dog named Bailey or Reilly. Just sounds neat.

-T

Oh yeah, had a black cat named Kiara (irish for black). I always liked that name....although very hard to call out, so of course, her name became Kiki. lol.

We have two cats. The older one is George, but when he was a pestiferous little kitten my DH sometimes jokingly called him "Dirty Rat B*stard, which has been shortened to just plain Rat. When we got our second kitty, who is named Mittens, she had a really squeaky little meow, and so I started calling her Mouse. Collectively our dynamic duo is known as "The Rodents." Anyway, I guess that's all our pet name weirdness.

I have some friends who name all their pets after names of countries or cities. Their current cats are Kenya and Oslo. Kenya's nickname is Boobies, and I have no idea how that got started. As you can tell, my friends are weird too!

Great question-a lot of these answers are really funny.

I have a dog called Jazz but she is also called Jasmine Elizabeth Wooth when she has done something naughty but funny(and I am trying to tell her off without laughing at her)!

I have a cat, and she's called Puss. Couldn't think of name with BF so we just left it at Puss.

Dog also gets called Moofty, puss turns to Moosty.

I could go on forever about wierd names becuase i pets have all of them (oh we have a fish called bluey, yes it's blue, we arent the best with names!!!!

I have a big tabby cat named Norten. We adopted him when he was 6 from friends who were moving out of the country. He loves to lay on his back in the sun.

I used to have 2 beagles when I was little and Freckles was my favorite, hence my handle.

My friend kelly had a cat once named PITA

She called it that because it climbed up her doorframe. and left little paw marks all over the door frame.

The person with the black cat named Snowball is probably a Simpsons fan. The Simpsons have a black cat named Snowball!


Pet names used in my lifetime:

Dogs: Corky, Chance, Cajun, Oliver.

Cats: Sunday, Daisy, Mikey, Layla, Xena, Cougar.

My cousin had a cat named Burger, and a bird named Tusey. She's a little strange! LOL

Someone else had a pair of birds named Polly and Esther.

My dog's name is Sebastian, but mostly we call him Sab or Sabby. After we named him I realized all four dogs I've had in my life have had names beginning with the letter "S" so my BF and I agreed any future dogs we get will have "S" names. We like Sassafras for a female dog. Our cats are BJ--BF had her before he met me and named her after the first initials of his and his ex's names...so I insist we tell people she's named after a character on his favorite TV show, M*A*S*H. Our newest kitty was PITA (as in pain in the arse.) When she was living outside we started calling her that bcuz she was driving us crazy and wouldn't let us bring her in. Now that she's in we thought that was a bit mean, but the name just stuck so we changed the spelling to Peeta.

As for strange names, my friend once had a cat she named "Dog." When I was a kid we had a female kitty my mom named "Darling." Not really strange, but I think it sounds so Zsa Zsa.

I've got two cats: My girl is Annie, for little orphan Annie, because she was the last of her litter to be adopted when rescued by the human society. My boy is Duff (or Duffy), for the beer Homer Simpson drinks on The Simpsons!!
