    For Real Pets, Not Humans

    I carry a little "idea book" around with me, because I have a notoriously poor memory and I want to make sure that I record anything truly worth remembering. One page of my idea book is wholly devoted to good pet names. Some are from books I love, some are inspired by...

    Love Hearing 'em

    I love hearing new & different names. Our two pups are Chewbacca & Butterscotch. Chewbacca was named by my hubby.  He had always imagined having that as the name of a male pet and when we found Chewie, it came naturally to him. I named Butterscotch.  I grew...

    OMG! That's So Cute!

    My brother-in-law has a little rat terrier named moo-moo. Cute little dog but weird looking. His face is brown and black and the rest of his body is white with big black patches like a cow. I love to call his name. It's so funny.

    A Few Good Names

    I don't have a dog but I came really close to getting one so I composed a list of names that I thought would be fitting for her. I really like learning the meanings for names so I went ahead and included the meanings and origins too. Gennesaret- Hebrew "garden of the Prince...

    Pets and Sims

    Okay, so I've already established that I'm a Sims 2 freak. So whenever I come across a good pet name, I get excited and go make one on there so that I always have the name. In the real world, though, I'm looking out for pet names for the two dogs I want to have when my...

    I'm tired of people introducing me to their new kitten and telling me this is Fifi or Fluffy. A little originality is all I ask! It's the same with rabbits. All I ever seem to hear when meeting them for the first time is the person telling me that this is Fluffy/Snowy/Cupcake...

    Cecil B Harden!

    When my cat had kittens, one had a striped tail, like a raccoon... Then, while driving by Racoon Lake, I learned after 28 years that the real name of said lake is "Cecil B Harden Lake." I had no idea!  So I named the furry little guy Cecil B Harden. Usually just...
