Have you let your kids name pet's before and if so what did they name them?

I named our old dog Pumba when I was 14, Lion King was fairly new at that time.

  • I haven't but my SIL and BIL got dog when my neice was about 6 and my nephew was 3.....they let the kids name the 100 lb black lab...."sparkle" no kidding! It's awful! I can't call this big black dog Sparkle to save my life! I am all for letting kids be involved in naming a pet, but I think I would try to steer them in a different direction if they tried to name it something awful!

  • My son is sooo weird when it comes to this. He is 3. He decided to take ownership of a stuffed horse that belonged to my DD. When asked what the horses name was he said Harvey. We also have a pet bunny, he said it's name is Polly. I don't know where he got these names or where he would even ever hear these names. Must run in the family. When my oldest son was asked what we should name our new baby girl, he said French Toast! IDK
