I had a market lamb when I was younger and in 4-H that my mom told me not to get attached to. I named him "Mr Sheep". I ended up getting really attached to him, and taught him how to lounge for exercise (hey, I was a horse-crazy horse-less kid) and somehow ended up winning a champion ribbon with him.

Mom had a Great Dane named Macaroni, kept one of her puppies and named that one Cheese so she could have some Macaroni and Cheese. She then started naming all of Cheese's puppies after different kinds of cheese so to name a few: Pepper Jack, Colby, Cheddar, Swiss, Roquefort, Blue and so on.

My Mom bought my sister and I two unwanted calves to raise/sell (Jersey bull got in with milking short horn cows) and my sister promptly named them Frisky (she was running around kicking up her heals) and Freda (I don't know where that came from). Friend showed up with a kitten for us her daughter had named Alexander Graham Bell, dad took one look at him and said he looks like a Harvey so that stuck. Then we had a heard of Angus that our parents wanted to make sure we knew what their fates were so we had Tbone, hamburger, steak, roast and so on. Cousin named one of her rotties Deeogee (DOG). That's all off the top of my head but there were more.

Knew there was another one and just thought of it. Mom and dad bought 5 (with one mare pregnant) horses at a fire sale, $1500 for $7k worth of horses. One of the mares had 6 month old colt with her and the owner said he wasn't registered yet and refused to say what she was calling him. The mares name was Venture so about half way home dad pipes up saying this whole thing was a venture in dog food because that's what they had if not knowing if any of the horses were sound or not. He then tells us the name of that colt is Dog Food and he was registered as Venture's Dog Food.

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.

Two pigs named Cinderella and her daughter Frtiz.
Goats Billy, Alvin
Cat named Min Min (she has to do everything twice hard to say Minnie Minnie), Whiskers, and Princess (18 yrs old)
Betta's named Bluey, Mondou? ( I don't know how to spell it but its a candy distributing company, when they found out my sister named her fish after them, they gave her free bags of candy).

All those were named by someone 9 and under.

Kids I babysit, dogs named Sunshine, Kitty, Ozzie, Beats (I thought they were talking about the vegetable, oops).

Alright I giggled at Repo! Also, I know a pony named FiFi. It absolutely fits her somehow as its shortened from Fiona, often known as Princess Fiona. When her stubborn side takes over FiFi it is!

Fiona is a lesson pony I work with and somehow the names of a couple of the other mares get shortened to odd things like our old faithful is Tinkerbell but often goes by Tinker, Tink or TinkTink. Her pasture mate is Penny the palomino so not sure we're the copper penny reference comes from and since there's a FiFi and a TinkTink my brain calls her PenPen all the time lol. Our sweet as a button Madison has been dubbed Mad Dog recently too.

My dog is named 'No-no' (can't imagine why, can you??? lol) But my friend had a neighbor whose dog was named '****it'!! Cracked us both up whenever she would call the dog. :)

My brother had 3 black & tan coon dogs. One of them was a very smart girl, but also very old. Her name was Nasty, and she automatically claimed me as her best friend. She would "guard" me if someone walked up to me. The other 2 were brothers...named T-Bone and Porkchop. xD

Nothing of worth comes with ease. <3

And we used to have a cat named Mouse and a cat named Gizmo. All named by my mom. So we are one of those "You named it what?!" families.
