How do you pick names for your pets?


We had some unusual names for our pets when I was a kid (my brother named one cat "Mody" because the cat sounded like its 'motor' was running when it purred. Any cute stories about pets' names in your household?

    What? Like God?

    That's the first one that springs to mind.

    Good name for a dog if it's dyslexic. Then it has a good chance of recognising its own name when it's written.

    I love your creative way of naming your pets! It would be neat to be surrounded by opera characters - although I am charmed by the Zoki story!

    Cool! I can't wait to read your hub! I agree - naming tricks can be interchangeable.

    Ha! I had to laugh at your Boring Cat reference! I've had a cat named Squeeky before - no other name would do; that was the only sound he would make. I think I may also have had a relative of your keyboard companion!

    I think you can be good at naming animals if you let them tell you themselves.look at the great poet, U? S, Elliot in his poem'The Naming of Cats'.

    It's a brilliantly funny poem, and it might give you some ideas.

    Or conversely, you could sit down wit
