    What's the most unusual name you've given a pet?

    My brother once named our cat "Mody" (pronounced "Moh-dee") because it sounded like it had a motor running when it purred. What are some unusual names you've given pets?

    Kakhi-Pants because of her coloring. Butterball because of his giant size and fluffiness.

    I used to name all my animals after Anime characters, so I had three cats: Epyon, Shinji and Washu and a dog named Kurumi. My favorite pet name, though, was a kitten that I got not long after I got married. I had a rottweiler/pitbull mix (named Gypsy) and she looked at the little kitty like she wanted to eat her - so I named the kitty Kibbles.

      Yes, Meg! Neon Genesis Evangelion was one of my favorites. I actually had a poll on LiveJournal and they chose the name.

    Many years ago, I got an American Eskimo puppy. I named her Yuki which is Japanese for falling snow.

    We had a dog named Taxi. The TV show of that name was one of my favourites, and I wanted a dog with a theme tune. It was slightly awkward when, as a youngster, she slipped her collar one night in town. We ran along after her shouting," Taxi!"

    Mine was Mojo. He was a cute little black and brown mix puppy, shorthair, with a white blob on his chest. I named him after the Muddy Waters song "Mojo" because it sounded sweet and bold. He got run over by a car when he was still young. sad

    Years ago, a neighbor gave our kids a puppy. They were pleased but they wanted kitten. Their dad said no, then he named the puppy Kitty Kat and said now you have both.

    We had one cat, a long-hair Maine Coon, we almost named her Xena. This cat was about as far opposite of the warrior princess as anybody could get. She was named Tiger instead - she wasn't much of a Tiger either. She was just the spoiled rotten, center of attention, queen of the house.

    We had another cat, a bright orange tabby with a kinked tail, named Fireball. He lived up to his name. He couldn't go anywhere in the house unless he was running top speed. THe instant somebody got up to moved, he'd instantly gues which way they were going and raced them at top speed. He always won.

    We had a turtle named Guido. He was a soft-shelled turtle and really strange looking.

    I have a dog named Pumpernickel.  She's a dachshund/spaniel mix and her coloring is exactly like Pumpernickel bread.

    I once had a dog named Mr. Chicksy because he loved to play with my chick named 399. And my chick was named 3-9-9 because that's how much I had to pay for it. LOL big_smile

    I named one of my scorpions Peanut Butter. Because I could. I'm not a big fan of random, slightly demeaning names, but I couldn't think of anything else.

    We rescued a loveable dog we found, filthy and wandering along a beach. We named him Flotsam, the debris you find floating in the water after a wreck. He looked great after we cleaned him up, but we had already named him so we stuck with it.

    My cat's name is C.C. which is short for Cindy Crawford. She has a spot on her face that resembles a mole and we decided that name would be fitting!

    "Reglisse", which in French means licorice, to a black Labrador dog in one short story I'm currently writing and publishing on HP. I like him so much I wish he was real smile
