    My youngest wanted to name Rylie Brutus. I told him I'd give it consideration but I lied (he is only here for the summer so he doesn't REALLY get a vote in family matters). Actually in this case I was the only one with a vote that counted. I do wonder if I should have called him Tigger because when he gets excited his does this vertical jumping thing (only other dog I've seen do this was a Jack Russell) or the energizer puppy because he just keeps going and going and going...........

    Ruby was called that when i got her & at 4years old i thought it a bit mean to change it-but its sooo obvious! i always say "i didnt call her that" but it is pretty
    Jelly Tots was my childhood nickname. If she's naughty she gets Jelly Tottington!! mostly its J, Jels,Jelly or JJ, Rubes gets Ru Ru,rubes or rhubarb! Both answer to darling aswell & i always refer to them as "the girls" in conversation. Its quite funny being out & calling Jelly & Rhubarb,come on!

    Haven't posted in a while but this is great to hear how names came about. Our first Autumn was named because we got her in Sept. and the red matched the fall leaves. The next two, Brandi- named after my husbands first dog- Belle, to keep with the B (she was going to be Smores). The next Quincy was named after an uncle we lived with for 18 years and he had just died. He was named Ginger when we got him at 4 yrs old. That was because of the red. Our newest, Irie, is a jamaican word that is a greeting, and just means all things good. After losing Belle so suddenly I needed a name to cheer me up! Irie now answers to another name too- Wiggles which says it all!!

    Belle 6yrs, at the bridge tirelessly chasing butterflies
    Brandi 7yrs, Quincy 7yrs, and Irie 10 months

    The rescue we got Zoe from had named all the puppies in her littler after flowers so there was Daisy, Poppy, Lily (now Zoe), and the Charlie (I dunno what kind of flower that is but it was the only non flower name). I liked Lily but she didn't look like a lily so I left Zoe's name mostly up to the kids but between the girls wanting Dora, Princess, or Tinkerbell and the boys saying Princess peach or Daisy (both from Super Mario Brothers), Zelda(also a idea game)... I don't remember who suggested Zoe (probably from sesame street) and by the time our 5 hour trip home was over we had all settled on it. Her full name is Princess Zoe to appease the girls.

    I didn't name Sushi or Riley but our kitten is named Chunk. We picked it because he was the only kitten who survived and after getting that much milk from momma he got pretty chunky! It was a nickname but it stuck.

    Leo's real name is Leonardo

    He looked like the lion from MGM when he was born hence shortening it to Leo

    I always say I'd like another three and I'd call them Michaelangelo, Raefiel and Donatello!

    Chelsea was just a name I got stuck in my head when I got her.

    Vivian was picked after i met her, I had originaly chose Lila, but when I saw how she ruled, chewed on her brothers and was generally a spicy girl, I looked at a site something like pet names or dog names and just went through picking some names. When I had the list and saw her in some pics I took at 4 weeks she sat looking at me from under her lashes or brows and I saw Vivan Leigh as Scarlet at the BBQ in the green and white dress with the same look I knew that was it. I even have a copy of that pic.

    My cats had some interesting name stories. Candy had a littermate brother named Snickers,thought Candy looked like a candy bar, chocolate covered caramel with vanilla cream(she was a champagin Tonkanese) Tyson was tie-me-in-a-knot, had him for a few days when he climbed under (not behind) the frige. Almost broke my foot getting him out and wanted to tie him up. Kara had orange eyes when I got her, they are more yellow now and was named after carrot eyes.

    Have fun.
    Suzanne mom to Chelsea(ruby girl), Vivian (tri girl),Kara(rescue kitty), Tyson and Candy(Tonk kittys at the bridge)
