I've never named a dog

I only rescue dogs.

They already have names.

If your dog is a chocolate Labrador retriever, then Guinness is an awesome name.

I named my last two dogs, BooBoo, and Rocket, after cartoon sidekicks.  I have now gone from Yogi Bear to Bullwinkle.

I just read where someone named his pet snake Lt. Dan. Because he ain't got no legs.

I almost aspirated my drink.

My sister's rat terrier is named "Precious".  Like Buffalo Bill's dog in Silence of the Lambs.  Make of that what you will.

Doggos, though...I have this large RUL GAY gamer pal who had two little mixed-chihuahuas that he nicknamed Crumb Dumpster and Crumb Guzzler.

Then my nephew named his Yorkie after the lackey in Hook (Mr. Smee) because he was always licking his boots.

Never going to Cleveland but the other maybe possible at some point, not a hope or desire, but...

My current dog was a pound pup who came with a name I couldn't stand. It was not hard to change his name. Dogs adapt to that pretty quickly.

What about cats?  MIne is named Satchel - everyone thinks I'm a baseball fan.  Actually, I just have a luggage fetish.

Ozzie and Harriet (cats)

I renamed my rescue pups.  Figured they could use a new name to celebrate their new life.  Say hello to Dee Dee and Charlie.

My dog only came with a shelter name that he clearly didn't know or care about. We decided to call him Sputnik.

All my fish are named after fruit, which fits the headline's assertion pretty accurately.

Sheela, Destroyer of Gardens, is also an excellent ratter.  Honey is a total sweetheart and Harvey, well not much you can do with half of a walnut for a brain.  No idea how any of them relate to my life's passions, but I do hate rats.

I named my dog after a character from a video game.

Then I find out like every other dog is named Luna.

Last dog I got from a coworker who rescued a pup and ended up with an unexpected litter. She was named Lindsey because I used to joke to my coworkers that every girl I met who was named Lindsey was attractive.

Current pup Rainbow was named that by the rescue who found her. Her sister was called Skye so I assume the rescue had a theme going. I was going to rename her but honestly couldn't find a better name.

One of my dogs was named "Phyllis Diller" by the humane society where we got her. She is quite a comedian, but I didn't want to be out in the backyard yelling "Come here Phyllis Diller". So we renamed her Snowball.

We named our first dog the most common dog name in the world. At his death, despite all the destruction he' had inflicted, all the loose stools of his that had to be steamed up, we attached (St.) to his name for the lovely way he had endured his final disease. Our subsequent pets have all been named by whim and the whim's change. By the time they've passed they've usually accrued 5 or 6 names.

My best friend came up with the best cat name ever. In London there are a class of street called "mews". To pin one of those on a cat seemed inspired to me.

Never had a dog, but I found this abandoned cat and named her Moira after one of the minor characters from Neverness.  And then found that a lot of people can't pronounce "Moira".

Moira's successor Mystic already had a name from the shelter, and she seemed to recognize it.  "Murderhobo" would have been a better fit as I've never seen a cat with such a high prey drive.

I thought I was the only one with a dog named that.  My first dog was Laika, named after the first dog in space, so when I got her a friend, Sputnik seemed like a good name choice.

Turns out it means "companion" in Russian a.k.a. Lil' Buddy.  He's a goofball

/My other dog is named Mamba, the family I got her from named her in memory of Kobe "Black Mamba" Bryant.  Big Lakers fans.

Thursday, Vicki, Sancho, and Mina all dogs. Thursday - the day he found me. Vicki - Victoria Secret, her brindle looked like a bra and garter, Sancho - my dog on the side, cuz I had promised Thursday that it would be just us, and no idea where Mina's name came from, my wife just liked it.
So apparently I like mid-week side action wearing lingerie? But then who doesn't

My girl is Gemini because she can flip from being sweet to being a psycho in a heartbeat.
