    Do your pets have different or unusual names?

    At this moment we have 4 cats named:

    Sir Thunderfoot Shadowchaser… Thunder
    Animal’s little bit of Love…………….Little Bit
    Sir Blackthorn’s Harthfriend……….Blackie
    Princess Patches Blue Eyes…………Patch

    The two outside (wild) cats are just Scruffie and Spot with Big Gray showing up once in a while

    My cat's official name is ryeongi. Which is a Korean abbreviation for Cat...kind of like our kitty. So when we brought her back to the states, her name became Kitty. The other one's name is Elphie.

    I have a 165 lb. fila brasiliero. These dogs have an atavistic misrtrust of strangers, were used to hunt jaguars and runaway slaves in Brazil, and have a reputation of being just plain nasty, forget about pitbulls. I have to be very careful with him,and put him in the barn when we have company-though he knows to behave on-leash and out in public, and behaves well on the trails. I've been told, though, that if a burglar ever got around him he might, quite literally, eat the guy.

    I call him Pooh-bear. :lfao:

    My brother and his wife had an American Chihuahua that they bought in Seoul named Komo Eagy (which supposedly means "little baby"). She was a sweetheart and love to go for a R-I-D-E. Which meant during the winter she had to run to the closet and get her sweater and was very helpful in getting it put on. Wonderful dog. She'll be missed.

    We have a springer/blue tick mix named Peco, which I'm told is Spanish for freckle. I often threaten my wife with the things I'm going to have made from his pelt if he eats just one more thing of mine (among the casualties: 2 Bluetooth headsets, several golf hats, a few pairs of pants that he's chewed buttons off of, and lately he's discovered how to sneak golf balls out of my bag).
    We also have two female cats. Hanzo is named after the famous ninja Hattori Hanzo (the friend who gave us the cats thought she was a male). Hannya is named after a female Japanese demon. She's a true calico, so I think it's a fitting name. Of course, these two are more commonly known by their respective nicknames: Fat Kitty and ********.

    Our German Shorthair Pointer's official name is 'Flower Creek Bleugras Jazz-Mine', but we just call her Ella as that is the name she came to us with.

    We thought about changing her nickname to Flurry. Because she is easily excited and especially because she looks like an Oreo Flurry, but Ella fits her just fine.

    I just googled her name and found that she is the grand dam of these little cuties:

    Just remembered a friend of mine from years ago had a cat named Phido

    He even had a rather large dog house out back with the name Phido over the entrance... although Phido was not actually that big

    We used to have a couple of muts names Spam and Jabba the Mutt. I had a cat names Zeus as a kid. My favorite is my brother's black and white dog he named Red.

    Pet names should make you smile IMO.

    We had a little JRT we named Moose. He was the largest pup in the litter, an alpha male that thought he was a pitbull. Now I have a German Shepherd named Zeus and my daughter's beagle is Nero. My son used to have a brown mouse he named Jerry. ;)
    I love the cat named Meatball. :D
