> What are the names of your pets?
Two Rat Terriers:
Female-Circe, which is a sorceress (sp?) in Greek mythology
Male-Ryu, japanese for dragon
My best canine buddy is named Jake. He came to us pre-named. We adopted him when he was 6ish. Actually, we later found out his name was really Jack. The humane society intake people wrote down his name wrong when his previous family surrendered him. Neither Jake nor Jack is a name I would typically choose for a dog. Too common. But, he is truly Jake now and I can't imagine him as anything else.
My newt's name is Phoebe. Because she is an amphibian or *am-PHOEBE-an*, you see. I thought that was cute when I named her 11 years ago. And, yes, she's really at least 11 years old. I have had her that long. My mom and my dh both swear they haven't replaced her with new Phoebes without my knowledge. I've researched it and newts can live that long in captivity, though it is rare.
My 12 week old wheaten terrier's name is Jasper. Dh and I named him after on of our favorite artists, Jasper Johns. We named him before he arrived at our house, and when we first introduced him to the children, ds asked, "Can we change that name?"
I said, "We did. We changed it to
Jasper!" He's gotten used to it and hasn't asked to change it again yet.
Our black lab is named Ashes

Salvador - Black and White kitty
We are getting another Pit (Possibly tomorrow!). His name will likely be Dewgun.
I will quote myself, because we got our puppy and we named him Cain.
Earthmama - My favorite cat ever, who will never be matched by any animal in my life was a black and white tuxedo named Buddha. Honestly, I will probably get a tattoo in his honor.
Nemo (big orange tabby boy, nicknamed Neems)
Tycoon (dd found him as a stray, he looks like a racoon)
Gypsy (nicknames -baby girl, Gyspy Loo, Loo Loo)
and our new Jersey wooley awaiting a proper name other than the "new white bunny!"
whew. our ds is allergic to dogs or I'm sure we'd have a few of them LOL
Suki, Bobby Brown, Cleo, Olivia and we are fostering a mom and her 4 kittens Vanessa, Celie, nettie, Harpo & Sway.
We also have a fish named Busta
Would like a snake..but dh says NO
I love hearing other people's pet's names. We only have 2 pets.
A yellow lab/pit bull mix named Daisy
A white lop eared house bunny named Spike
We have five oscars:
1. the big one
2. the black one
3. the white one
4. the small one
5. teeny tiny
oh, and the pleco is Malachi.
Our bearded dragon is Fred.
The cat is Sabre, as in a Sabre Tooth Tiger.
And the parakeet is Pablo, named after the penguin from Backyardigans - my 2.5 yo named him.
Love this thread!

We give our pets first names then the surname just seems to appear over time.....
Louie-Louie-Louie, though I guess officially he should be Louie Custard-Bear
Jerry Mau (they are brother and sister)
The chickens don´t have names.
Just over a year ago there was only me, DH, George and Tatty - since then we have acquired the rest of these animals, had a baby girl and 7 puppies (baby and puppies on the same day!) - and we´ve had to find names for all of them, that probably explains why we got a bit literal with the goats!
Jedi Moon (German Shepherd Dog)
Coco (Toy Poodle- my SIL dog who is living w/ us b/c she's in Romania)
We have 41 and about 2/3 are named- the rest are too hard to tell apart, but here's a sampling
Zephyr, Zelig, Una, Beulah, Esperanza, Lemur, Ocelot, Marta, Puck, Cheetah II, Nipper, Evie, Ruth, Annie, May, Patience, Dusky, Pigeon, Emu, Sugar, Lemon, and Crinkle
We also have 4 beehives, but no one is named (though I think we should at least name the queens).
We only have 1 cat and her name is Daisy.
(single mommy to Emma, 3 years and Angela, 2 years)
One dog named Maggie
Cats: Messy, Foley, Nasa, Tsunami and the dearly departed but horrifically named Snausage.
My finches' names are Daphne and Herbert, and their two little children are Egbert and Sheldon...or if they end up being girls, Egberta and Sheldine (shell-deen)
Cats - Katie and Tula
Dog - Cody
Goats - Birdie, Robin, Lily
Horses - Ace and Missy Bessy
Beta Fish - hmm... I think dd said he was Nemo
