Well, most anything I try to name my pets doesn't stick, so...Probably because I named a green and yellow parakeet Bluey...a gerbil Runner, a grey mouse Mr. Grey and a tri-color guinea pig Spot. Also named one of our cats Spooky.
My brother named his white mouse "The Last Albino Rhino" AKA Monster. My other brother named his guinea pigs Peter (after a cousin
) and Jill (after one of my dad's co-workers).
My dad named a brother/sister pair of cats (one a tuxedo and one a calico) Tux and Edo. I named my chocolate lab Oreo and then he decided to name the next dog we got Cookie.
Oh, I guess Oreo is strange because she is brown. Chocolate lab=Chocolate=Chocolate cookie=Oreo right? But all my other dogs were always black and white, so when I would introduce any pair of them "This is Oreo and Cookie" everybody always thought the black and white one was Oreo. Lol.
I found a pair of kittens and was not planning on keeping them, so they got called Black kitten and Grey kitten. Then black kitten was getting fat so he got called Big Black kitten. Then Grey kitten died so Big Black Kitten became Big kitten. My parents still have him, but my mom refuses to call him kitten and instead calls him Big Kitty. Then, my dad found a tortoiseshell kitten. My mom briefly saw her and decided we needed to call her Inky cause she thought she was all black. Well that name stuck too. Then we have another found kitten, she is a torbie (tabby tortoiseshell) and we call her Scooter, cause no matter where she is, if you try to walk past her she tries to scoot as quick as possible across the hallway or room. We also had Momma Kitty, who came to us pregnant. Only one kitten survived, he was all black and ended up named Sooty.
My Grandma named her cat Dingo.
Mom says she meant Bingo, but Dingo stuck.
Nowadays my husband names our pets, Orville the Ragdoll named after Orville Wright. Stigander AKA Stig the Norwegian Elkhound (means "Wanderer" in Norwegian). Bitsy and Crumbles the guinea pigs. And Nathaniel Green the Betta. Tinkerbell, my mare, was named by a 5 year old.
