Sometime we sit stumped trying to think of a name for our exotic pets or, for that matter, any pet. Naming a pet isnít always as straight forward as it seems. Letís learn a bit about pet names, the most appropriate pet names for exotic pets, but also dog names, bird names, and cats. In addition, how they got those pet names.
As you sit there perplexed, looking at your new pet, consider what you want the pet name to depict.
Dog pet names
You donít want a name that everyone else uses; Bella for example, is what the Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. (VIP) has determined as the most popular dog name. I would imagine because of the teen vampire flick Twilight. Iím not knocking Twilight; I read the series and watched the movies too. Bella is of Italian origin, and means beautiful.
Cat pet names
The most popular pet cat name is Max and Bella second. The meaning of the name Max is ďthe greatest,Ē I am sure we all feel that way about our cat.
Exotic pet names
The most popular exotic pet name is Charlie. I have met a lot of exotic pets named Charlie. They have been skunks, iguanas, sugar gliders, you name it, darn near every species of exotic pet has a Charlie.
Parrot names and Bird names
I wonder what the owners truly intended when they named their parrot Miss Take? Never-the-less it is a creative name. How about a bird name or tagging your pet, Tag; yes, Tag is a name. Isn't that like using name as a name? I am sure someone has done it.
Recovered pet names
Recycling names isnít a real good idea, Hercules V, just what did happen to Hercules II, III, and IV? Hmm?
Wacky pet names
Also taken from VIP, the most popular wacky dog name is Almost-A-Dog the name of a sweet, cuddly, and tiny bundle of fluff. Most popular cat name is Ozzy Pawsbourne named by an owner who truly believes a catís personality usually turns out to be the animalís name. Ozzy is certainly a distinctive individual.
Popular pet names
Some creative names I think are exquisite, Oliver with a Twist, Bing Clawsby, and Virginia Woof. I loved the name Itty Bitty Kitty! That kitty you can almost imagine. Purr Diem would perfect for my Ragdoll cat. She fills my life with purrs and love every single day.
Silly pet names
How about some truly silly names? Oh yeah, thinking of silly. One of my readers has a Gecko named Silly; in fact I did a story on the family pets!
We can have a lot of fun with names. I also think that an animal will eventually name itself. An animalís name is more than just a name; it can be an extension of their uniqueness and our love for them.
