I always find it amusing the names people have their four legged family members. We currently have two dogs- Rags and Nana Bear, four cats- Sassy, Puck, Emily and Red Kitty. Anyone else want to share?

We have Nana (border collie) and Keith (chocolate lab), although we didn't name either of them - we rescued them and just kept the names they came with, since it seemed easier for them to have that bit of familiarity. We also have a cat named Cozy, who I named myself (I had her before Rain was born). Former pets were Pepper (cat), Rowdy (Shepherd mix), Mariah (black lab mix), Spike (blue heeler), Lobo (red heeler), and Scorpio (cat).

We almost got a beautiful German Shepherd who had had extensive training from the shelter once, and we were tossing around names and Rain came up with Mahler... I thought it was a cool name, although I wasn't sure exactly why this dog reminded Rain of a 19th century composer... although I did think she was darn brilliant for making whatever connection she had made. I asked her why the dog made her think of Mahler, and she gave me a quizzical look and said, "No, *Maul*er. Like she could maul people, because she's a police dog." Oh...

We didn't get Mahler, or Mauler, because they said she wasn't good with cats, and we had two...

We have one goldfish named Bruce. He's named after my favortite musician, Bruce Cockburn.

We used to have tropical fish and had a gourami who acted like he owned the aquarium and pushed all the little fish around. We named him Bill, after Bill Gates. We thought getting him a lady friend would improve his disposition so we got another gourami named, of course, Melinda. Then he just chased her around and left the other fish alone. :LOL

I have one kitty named Ut-Ohs. She was ex-DPs brother's cat, so thats where she got the name. I really hate it, but I don't want to offend his brother by changing it (because it was REALLY super nice of him to give me the kitty). Also, shes 2 years old... it might be a little late for a new name, I don't know.

I'm still thinking she needs a NICKNAME though..... haven't come up with one.

we're boring around here....

nikki - lab mix mutt we got from the spca - she was named already.
bean - purebred lab. i named her because she hopped when she walked as a puppy (jumping bean). turns out that was an indicator of her knee problem that wasn't diagnosed until she was 3, but that's an entirely different story. while we never sent in her paperwork to register her with the akc or wherever, her "full name" is obean wan kenobean.

and then the fish. dd names them by species, so we have the "igors" (which i believe are celebs), the "red hens" (which are a zebra somethingorother), and the "emilys" (some kind of a catfish).

Right now all I have is Porcelina Sassafrass (aka Lina), my little black kittie. She's such a spaz :LOL

At my mom's house (I still count them as my cats) I have Tiggs, a Maine Coon who we got because his previous owner was marrying a woman who was allergic to cats, and Crookshanx, my sister's cat named after the Crookshanks from the Harry Potter books.

Oops, I should clarify.... I just meant that ex-DPs brother is the one who GAVE her the name (meaning, I didn't name her that).

As for WHY he named her Ut-Ohs.... I THINK he told me its because when she was born, both of her back legs were backwards? But for whatever reason, she grew out of it, and her back legs are now perfectly fine.

Currently we have three cats:

Gizmo
Buddha
Westing

Gizmo is a grey and white tiger with a trash can for a stomach who, like a cockroach, could probably survive an apocalypse. He's the terror of the neighborhood but unfailingly a "gentleman tom" when it comes to small children and people with food or scritches. He's named after the alien. (Don't get them wet! Don't feed them after midnight!)

Buddha is a black and white tuxedo cat we rescued; he was found in the woods with a collar and bell on, starving and with a lot of intestinal issues. His original rescuers appropriately named him "Doo" for all the poop he made. We just couldn't do that to a cat, so we renamed him Buddha, after my husband's existential black and white male tuxedo cat who would show up when it was the right time, this being his excuse every time I lobbied for another cat. And he did. He's now a quite chubby, neurotic, loveable cat with food issues and no Off switch when it comes to belly rubs.

Westing is my inverted pumpkin. She was born at my friend's aunt's veterinary clinic the week after I lost a cat to a Rottweiler, and she climbed me like a tree while all her sibs hung out with their mama the first time I met them. She has black fur and pumpkin orange eyes, constantly looks pregnant no matter how much exercise she gets (pear-shaped kitty!), and thinks our baby is the most frightening creature she's ever met.

Splash- Great Dane
Wally- Saint Bernardish
TJ- Orange and white cat/ferret mix (you laugh... but I swear his mother mated with something from the weasel family)
Rosie- grey cat... lovingly referred to as see jack (CGAC for common grey alley cat)
Schboogie- grey cat. I think it's spelled schboogie. That's how I would spell it if I had to.
Fish- just fish
And a squirrel that is having an affair with Schboogie... we call it Blib or blibber. I don't know why. But it is seriously in love with my cat. They stare at each other through the window for hours every day. But if another cat jumps into the window, blib leaves until that cat leaves.

I will not even go into all the names my previous and foster pets have had... MDC doesn't have enough bandwidth.

Both of our dogs came pre-named, and it just didn't feel right to try and change them, so we have:

Deacon (real name Cymry's Little Minister)
Angie (real name Aberwyvern Angela Hewitt)

but they usually end up being Deeky-dog and Anj, aka Fluppetus ( I have *No* idea why...)


At the Bridge:

Java, Chai, Zip, Kobe, Bean, Pod, Mo....kitty cats
Pippa and Bright Eyes...bunnies from my childhood
