We got our cat from my friend’s parents. It was a farm cat that liked being around people so much, they took him in. They named him Peanut. We kept it as him middle name, but decided to rename him Rory, after the Doctor Who companion (TV show).

@SouthernGirl: I love Harry Potter! Minerva is a great name. I named a rabbit after Luna Lovegood, but I had to find a new home for the bun because my rabbits hated her. Her new owners are all huge Harry Potter fans.
@misspeanut: She really looks like a Bailey. That name is perfect for her.

our 2 1/2 year old chorke (chihuahua/yorkie) is called Bailey. we had the name picked out before we had the pup. my FI”s favorite drink is baileys irish cream.
our 1/2 year old cat alex was named after my dads previous cat who was named after alex from a clock work orange. my dads cat was extremely sweet and calm but my alex is much more like the character.
my 9 month old yorkie is pixel khloe. she was named pixel because she was so small when we got her and she got khloe after my sisters daughter who was still born at 40 weeks 3 days. (i asked her first if it would be okay)
bailey and alex

Named our dog after the first dog we were planning to adopt but ended up not getting (was gone when we went back). So I guess kind of after another pet.
We didn’t choose the SAME name, just a different version of it to pay tribute to the dog that made us want to get a dog.

I named my cats Jack and Pickles. Pickles’ name was inspired by a friend of mine’s cat, whose name was Pancakes. I thought it was the funniest cat name I’d ever heard and I wanted to come up with a similar food-related name for my cat. So Pickles it was!
I named Jack because I always loved the name Jack, and was at a point in my life when I thought I might never get married or have kids, so I was like, “Screw it, I’ll name the cat Jack.”

I added a “food or drink” option to the poll. We have a couple Bailey’s already lol. And a Pickles.

We got MOLLY Feb of 2010, and as soon as i saw her i KNEW she was a Molly, and Fiance agreed with me! Then Fiance found MERLIN on the side of the interstate in april of 2010, and he looked like a wizard, so we named him MERLIN =)

Our dog came from the shelter and they named him there. I was going to change it but Buster just fit perfectly, the little imp.

@bunnyharriet: I wouldnt of been able to let myself go if we didnt take him in. He was in such a horrible condition. He needed 11 teeth removed due to his diet from being outside so long, he now has lyme disease, kennel cough(which will never technically go away), he had whip worm(which can kill a dog).. and needed like 10 baths b/c he smelled so bad =(. He is now a hyper, loving, PIA dog. i love him to death.

This is who my Dog is named after.
I originally wanted to name her Gizmo, because she had huge pointy ears when she was a puppy. Then my dad suggested Gidget. I had no idea who she was at the time but I loved the name.

He’s named after the location we met at. We always get compliments on his name as its unique but totally suits him.
