  • Pet names. What are some of yours?

    There was an article in our local paper (info taken from city's animal licensing department). Popular pet names are Max, Buddy, Bella. Some oddball ones like Q-Tip, T-Bone & Pudge. I thought it might be fun to see what names are represented here. Disclaimer: I did not name all our pets!

    We have:

    Devon - St. Bernard
    Dakota - Great Dane
    Cat - Lemon Zest
    Cat - William
    Cat - Beau
    Chinchilla - Fungus Face (Fung for short)

    We've had:

    Duke - Maremma
    Baron - Maremma
    Czar - Akbash
    Tessa - Akbash
    Cat - Pooch
    Peacock - Bob
    Rooster - Klondike
    Chicken - Fisty Chick
    Highland Bull - Knothead
    Highland Bull - 5 1/2
    Jersey Cows - Faith, Hope & Charity

    Like I said, I'm not responsible for all these names, but I do have my more than fair share of oddball ones.

    Looking forward to your pets' names.

        When I was a child, we had a dog named Mitzi. She was beautiful, very intelligent and just an all around good dog. When my parents got married, Dad brought his hunting dog into the marriage. The dog's name was Jip. Dad obviously loved that dog, but had to give him up when he left the unproductive farm in Mississippi to find a job in Chicago after my brother was born. We kids grew up hearing stories of Jip and he was legendary in our household. I've always felt like I knew him. One of my favorite stories is about the way he always protected my Mother after Mom and Dad got married and the way he also protected my the infant brother. When anyone came to the door, Jip always stood guard between Mom and the visitor. Also, when Mom would leave the room where my brother was, Jip would stand guard as close as he could get to him until Mom returned.

            We currently have one dog and her name is Maggie. She has somehow attained a surname of O'Doodle.

              When my daughter was very young, somebody gave us 2 kitties. We decided to let her name one of them, the orange tabby kitty. In trying to help her out with ideas, I asked her what she thought of Tiger. She shook her little head and said, "Lion." So, Lion it was. She could pick that kitty up in the weirdest ways and he just let her do it. I miss that kitty!

              My brother used to have a cat, presumably a rather playful one, that he called Daffy Crackers

              Thank you, Mary Rae, for your lovely picture!

Matthew 6:19-21

                My current dog is the one inherited my mother and dad. She is a chihuahua with the name of Godzilla. My mom let my son name the dog when they got it about 13 years ago.

                When my kids were growing up we had a dog that was part pomeranian and pekingese. Her name was Georgette. She was named after a dog in a story that was brain-washed by the kidnappers. They made the dog watch soap operas all day long. So every phrase out of the dog's mouth in the story was some soap opera type statement.

                    We currently have Bubba.

                    His "official" name is Mr Black, because he is a huge, dignified, black cat. I named him Bubba because he loves to hunt and loaf around all day.

                    My neighbors speak Spanish at home. Their toddler calls him "GA" - short for gato.

                    Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

                      We have a large, aging cat named Jerry. My father was/is a Deadhead and named him after Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. Years ago when my parents were still married and we were living in the same house we had two dogs: a mutt named Candy and a westie named Max, both of whom were hit by cars and killed because we lived on a busy road.

                          We don't have any real pets, but we do have two cardinals that are very territorial with the bird feeder. We named them Randy and Alice after this awesome couple we know.

                          We also have a pet metal rooster named Fred. Don't ask!

                            Moses - a cat that died last year at 11 1/2
                            Before him I had Ishkabibble and Velcro. Ishkabibble was a name my dad used for my sister.
                            Velcro, when she was a kitten did not know how to retract her claws, and stuck to everything.
                            We adopted a cat from my sister that I named Elijah, but the kids called him Moose.

                            Before them we had dogs
                            TJ a sheltie
                            Pepper, a mix
                            Rosie a red setter mix
                            Wrocky a canadian champion Keeshond
                            Joshua "Josh" a keeshond
                            and a beloved rottweiler named Kodiak.and a german shepherd named King

                            Currently I have a little wise acre black 11 month old kitten named Adolphus. And he is a wise acre too, I think he has come to the conclusion that his name is "Cut that out"!, or "You little rattle snake!", or "Leave my water alone!" He picks up water glasses by the rim and dumps them out!! He is my Little Wild One.

                              Sandee, we had a kitten named Velcro once, because we could hold her up to the side of a chair or the couch and she would just stick there!

                              Dog -- Mindy (our DS1's dog, a black Lab mix)

                              Cats, well, let's see, there's . . .

                              -- Mim (short for Miriam, the matriarch and most senior of our cats)
                              -- Scout (Mim's daughter, so called because she was the one in her litter who explored new places first -- GREAT mouser)
                              -- Cymry (Mim's other daughter, long white fur and bright blue eyes, pronounced "Kim-ree" -- the Cymry were/are what the Welsh called themselves -- I'm big on ancient British history and the Celts)
                              -- Samantha (DH named her -- no reason behind the name)
                              -- Romulus and Remus (Cymry's sons -- Rommie is long-haired and Reemie is short-haired, both white with pale blue eyes)
                              Max (Maximillian)
                              -- Dorian Gray (because he's, well, gray)
                              -- Leroy and Jenkins (those who play World of Warcraft will know the reference)
                              -- Big Boy (not technically "ours" in that he didn't come from the line of Mim, but I suspect he's responsible for much of the line due to the presence of a diagonal white stripe on the back leg of many a cat on this hill which Big Boy also posesses)
                              -- Rascal (DH's favorite, a long-haired, orange-and-cream "baby" who I aptly named because he was a little rascal as a kitten -- sounds like Sandy has one, too)

                              Our first cat was Catfish, a long, lean, black-and-white tomcat. Again, DH named him. He also named a dog we once had Cornbread.

                              I once had a Hemingway (polydactyl) cat named Cait Sidhe (pronounced "Kate Shee"). Since I always like to name my cats names that are appropriate for their physical/temperamental characteristics, I did a search for Celtic cat names and found this one, which was the name of a Scottish cat mythological animal with a black coat and a white chest patch, so she was Cait. Back then, I had bad headaches that would send me to bed. If I had a headache, Cait would always seem to know, and she would come to me in the bed and knead the back of my head and neck with her multi-toed paws.
