  • When you think of names imagne yourself yelling it out your front door. I refuse to yell marshmallow or fluffy out the ours are people names :)

  • Its funny that ria7 says that cause when we were little we would intentionally name our cats funny names cause we thought it was funny when our dad had to yell for them and it was a totally stupid name! LOL!

  • Sometimes. At present I have a cat named Kelly and a dog named Tucker, but I have in the past owned a cat named Popcorn, a dog named Spunky and so on. I think it just depends on the particular animal and what name you and the rest of the family like and decide on. A family pet is where everybody usually gets a say, not just the parents, like a new baby.

  • We had a cat named Smiley cuz he had a happy personality...and we now have a cat named Spaz...cuz she's a spaz....and our dog's name is Libby cuz I just liked the name.... We usually name them from their personalities or from something that just pops into our head and sounds really cute. We had a Beta fish once that I named Fred...cuz I couldn't think of anything

  • It took us forever to come up with our dogs name. My sister came up with the name Roman, we made soo many jokes about it but in the end thats was his name became. It was also the name of someone on Days of our Lives, thats where she got it from. But like someone else said I couldn't imagine naming a pet fluffy or some other cutesy name,
