  • My dog is Toby and my cat is Tommy. I have an assortment of other smaller animals too:
    4 Guineas: Holly, Megan, Bumbles and Amy
    2 rats: Rosie and Rascal
    7 Hamsters: Wilbur, Louis, Oscar, Rupert, Peggy (she has 3 legs), Sour (was one of two chinese hamsters) and Lily.

    Most have reasons behind or were just names we like! We prefer 'real names' not things like "Fluffy twinkle toes".

  • My husband named our fish Blue October, because he's blue, we got him in October, and Blue October is my favorite band.
    Our desert tortoise is named Jack, and my son named him when he was 6 years old. My husband walked through the door with him the first time, and my son took one look at him and said "I love him. His name is Jack!" It took about 3 seconds to name him, and I thought it was a great name.

  • Since we had kids, they have picked the names. We've had three guinea pigs- Linney, after the guinea pig on WonderPets, Frenzy, after the Transformer, and Sundae, because she looks like butterscotch ice cream (all picked by the kids.) We also had two betta fish, Nemo and Jaws. Before having kids, I used to keep hedgehogs and I named all of them after spiky plants... we had Hawthorne, Bramble, and Thistle.

  • I'm not a fan of people names for pets, but that's just me. Our pets are named after characters from movies. The cat actually has a human name, which kinda bugs me, but I've gotten used to it. =)
