My chow chow’s name is Kyra. I chose that name b/c her mommy’s Laughing name was Kita and I wanted to keep the “starts with a K” theme going. All of the female pups have “K” names. Her eis a picture of her lounging on my daughter’s bed.

Believe it or not, I’ve always had a little pool of named I’ve liked for dogs, haha. So whenever we get one, we pick which name from the pool best matches the dog’s personality πŸ™‚

Oh yes, and it will be the same for our kids. We already have a pool of names reserved for them πŸ™‚

My FI named the dog Indiana after one of his favorite movies, Indiana Jones. I wanted to name the cat after a Harry Potter character and settled on Bellatrix because I thought it was different and cute.

Our dog was a rescue and her original name was “Princess”.  As must as we loved her we just didn’t love her name, but we wanted her new name to honor her old life – she was 10 when we got her, she’d been around.  So we named her after Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, and her nickname is Rory.

We discussed pet names for MONTHS before getting a dog. The boy wanted to name him Skeletor (I wish I was kidding) and Ahab but I wanted a person’s name. After a long, long, LONG debate, the boy suggested Basil (pronounced “bazzle,” NOT “bay-zle”) and I liked it.

We already have our next male dog’s name picked out. Franklin.

When we come acros names in books that we really like for pets or kids, we save them on a list! FH is a political science professor, and Tammany was named after Tammany Hall. It’s turned out to be an appropriate moniker, as she is bossy! πŸ˜‰

Bitey is Bitey because first of all she’d always chew on my hands as a puppy and also after a Simpons episode (Marge vs. The Monorail):

Marge: “Homer, there’s a family of opossums in here!”
 Homer: “I call the big one Bitey.”

Needless to stay it stuck.

 

Satchel is named after the lead guitarist in Steel Panther (do not google them if you’re easily offended). My FI named him.

We named our dog, Cooper, because it just seemed to fit him. Plus he is brindle & we got reminded of the brand Cooper Tire, it looks like a tire ran over him so he has tire marks πŸ™‚

& then my other dog, Minni, is a chihuahua & we named him Minni because he’s like a Miniature Version of Cooper. Get it – Minni Cooper πŸ™‚

(That’s the only picture I could find of Minni on my work computer, and that’s my husband πŸ™‚ )

My Fiance is part of the open source community (computer stuff).  So our first cat is named after the penguin mascot “Tux”.  Then our next cat is named after Mozilla’s web browser “Firefox”.  Our third cat is named Cisco, we like their routers.  Originally we were going to name her Linksys but Cisco fit better.

Well, FI and I dog (and puppy) sat for a friend for 1 week,  and the litter was about 3-4 weeks old. All the pups had markings, and were nicknamed based on that (star, tree, ring… etc) but the smallest of them all had no markings, so he was nameless. FI kept saying he was the coolest puppy from the litter… eventually it became “He’s so cool he’s chilly” and thus the name Chilly.

We adopted Leah, and she already had a name, so it stayed.
