Which Pet Name?

You don’t have to settle for generic names you can use any name you want. The name that fits your pet and you is very important. However, mmythological tales and folklore stories have always been my favorite places to draw names from. I have named past pets Loki, Medusa, Artemis, etc. Search through myths from different cultures and you’re bound to find a name that jumps out at you.

Wherever and whatever it takes to find the right name for your pet is important. You will have to like and work with it daily. Keep in mind that pets are unconditional in giving their love so when picking a name; pick the right one that fits your loving pet.

      Cute hub. I giggle when I meet dogs that are named Walter, Gertrude, Margaret or Gustav. You know how people say, "Oh, you act like you're (name of person) alright. So goes with the dog.

      I have a cat named Chloe. I have so many cats that it's hard to come up with names, so I guess some of mine are unusual. Here's just some of them...Foxy, Echo, Despereaux, Orion, Ling Ling, Pax (yes, I stole this from Angelina), Dove...the list goes on and on as I have 26 cats. Great Hub!

      Fun Hub "Ladybird". Let's see, I had a Dog named "Brandy" whom I did not get to name, for he came to us age 2 with that name...However I did get him a "playmate" which we named "Burt". I had some Cats in my lifetime...Let's see, there was "George", "Susie" and of course the kids had a cat or two of their own when they were growing up.

      I named my cat Felix after the Odd Couple. My dogs got their names from the humane society and I never changed them. Roscoe, Bella, and Jenny. Enjoyed this hub.
