My very first real pet ever was a cockatiel who we named Georgio (we got him around 1988 and he is STILL alive btw, i swear he's bionic). Then we had the meanest golden retriever ever named Sam. Then I got Milo, a sweet but moody jack russell/cocker spaniel. He's now 11 and still spunky with an attitude. Last year I added Cocobelle (aka Belly for short, cause she's always flipping over to show her belly), a brown doxie-beagle-chihuahua mix. I'd have cats too if Milo wasn't such a natural hunter! Love pet names because you can be more creative than with people names (imo anyway) :)
My baby... a Husky-Golden Lab mix... is Sunshine Eleven. Her nicknames are many- Shiny, Shiner, Sunshiner, baby, Mrs. Golden Ears. And Eleven is my lucky number, so it fit. She's our only "child" so she's extremely spoiled. Also, she's white with golden tips on her paws, tail and legs. She's a ray of Sunshine to everyone she meets!! Corny, but true!!
I have an all-white kitty named Paige.
She gets nicknamed Smaige, Puppy-Cat, Chicken, Chitty-Chat and Kitchen.
I have seven dogs, which sounds hard to believe, but I live on a farm. Our oldest dog is 14, and she's a white miniature schnauzer named Kay. We named her Kay because her name was K.C. when we got her. Since she was two when we got her, we didn't want to change it too much.
Our next dog is grey standard schnauzer, who is 13 years old. His name is Kody. We just liked the name Kody, and it matched Kay.
Our third dog is another grey standard schnauzer, Kody's brother. His name is Sheridan. My sister named him.
Our fourth dog is a giant schnauxer, who is 10. Her name is Zita. She's named Zita because we found her eating a pita, so it kind of fit. She was a stray, and we think she is around 10 because she was a little puppy when we found her.
Our fifth dog is another miniature schnauzer, this time black. Her name is Birdy, because she loves to chase birds. She is five years old and loves our other mini schauzer Kay.
Our sixth dog is named Mazie, and she is a miniature schnauzer and miniature poodle. She is three years old.
Our last dog, we decided to change it up a bit, is a boxer named Adelita. She is two years old and we found her in the woods, lost as a puppy. We called her owner who said he didn't want her more. He dumped her there. So we decided to keep her.
We just adopted a Lhasa Apso puppy through petfinder.com.
We named her Lollypop Nima.
All of my dogs have had an 'o' and 'y' in their names, so I adapted the name to fit the tradition. She goes by "Lolly." "Nima" is Tibetan for "sun." Lhasa Apsos originated from Tibet, and the capital city is know for being incredibly sunny!
Pounce and Bounce-siamese/mix cats, my parents named them for what they were always doing when they brought them home
Many many mice and hamsters all i can remember is Jack/Rosie the hamester who was called Jack-Rosie since i didnt know if it was a boy or girl names are from titanic. Piebald called Pie cause he was 3 colors lol

Dia- my 2 year old Pit/Lab/Chow mix the shelter named her Georgia which I hated so I named her Kaydia which then became Dia, I mainly call her dia-dog =) she is such a dog dog
Abbey- my fiance dog she was Abby at the shelter and he added the e to make it "cooler" we liked the name and she was so shy we didnt want to confuse her more. I call her the Abbester or supermodel she is a very prancy pure white husky mix =)
My family has one yellow labrador retriever, whose name is Chrysanthemum. We call her Chryssy though. :)
Yes! I'm a huge Buffy fan! I know people who have five alpacas, two are named Spike and Willow haha and the other three are Paisley, Finale, and Guthrie. If they have another boy they are naming him Angel.

My friend has a male Corgi named Frodo. Sam has a million nicknames. My cat's name is Rocky after the song "Rocky Raccoon" which is about Bob Dylan (my dad named him) but we actually call him sweet boy most of the time. My parents also have a dog named Murphy, a hermit crab named Rosie and a pot bellied pig named Oliver.
We have 2 all black cats, Eloise and Dorothea, though most of the time they are called Elo and Doro.
I have a yellow lab named Finley Harbour ____________. We rescued him, so he is our 'fair haired soldier'. Such a brave guy and he was so sick when we adopted him. He's a water dog and originally labs are from Newfoundland, hence the Harbour spelling though we are in the US. It took us two weeks to name him! We also call him Finn.
