This is a question Pet Names

I once knew a cat called Lenin. It got diarrhea so they renamed it Trotsky. Tell us the name of your pet - but only if you've got an amusing or interesting reason for it. Tiddles need not apply.

We had a cat called Sherpa because it used to climb up stuff when it was little, mainly legs...

My family gives animals odd names.
Um. We had a dog called Sigi. Nicknamed Princess Of Podge.
The next door neighbors cat. Who is black and white, so we call him Blank-Et-Noir. Or De-Blankers.
Our actual cats are called Wuss-Puss and Peckish. Or Wuss and Pecksniff.
I once called a fish Pidgeon. And a dog Puppy.

My First Pet...
was a guinea pig. Encouraged by my overly flower-powered-up parents I genuinely named him Captain Batman Pee Pee MacGregor. The 'pee pee', came from the noise he made. Unfortunately my dad left him in the garage over xmas (we lived in Durham) and he was frozen over night.

I had two angel fish
named Troilus and Cressida. Naming them after characters in a Shakespearean tragedy proved to be an augur of fate: Troilus died in a fight and Cressida went mad and started eating the smaller fish. We had to 'euthanase' her in the end.

don't worry, Ill keep it short:

Two cats - one blue burmese called Ichabod, and a golden burmese whose breeders decided to call Dandelion something or other. these lofty aspirations wound up with the blue called fatso - cos he was - and the golden one weeman -cos he was too and also cos he had an argument with a lawnmower and subsequently has three legs.

and a hamster named after the thick sherriff in dukes of hasard - roscoe - because it shat itself everytime it went in the wee ball thing. Could be cos the wee ball thing was used as a football by my stepfather. While roscoe was in it.

Cats are vicious things
especially the cat I have at the mo, called Lecter, after his inability to see why other cats have tails and he doesnt (being the runt of the litter). His inability amounts to him biting other cats tails off. And eating them.

He's adorable really.

Took in a stray once
and she'd hide under the bed for most of the first month. Named her Simone de Boudoir. She escaped one heat frenzied eve and eventually produced a sickly litter of kittens. The two survivors ended up effectively missing one fore and one hind paw respectively. Named them Peg and Eileen (over).

Speaking of confused nutter cats...
My parents have a cat called "Maurice", which we thought was a boy but wasn't. It's still called "Maurice". We figured she wouldn't know it was a boy's name.

I wanted to call the other one "Her Majesty Queen Alexanria" but my parents said it was too long. So now she's just called "The White Cat", because she's white. Or "Whitey" for short. Which is marginally more original than their pony, which is called "Pony".

I miss my cats :(

Bubbling under...
Had an Australian Crayfish, or Blue Lobster called Knuckles.
Evil little bastard, ate all the interesting fish, but did shed his skin every six months which leaves you with a nice empty lobster model.

Mates got a lurcher called Hoover, cos the bugger eats everything.

That count?

We got a kitten, originally called Pepsi (as it's black) but decided we didn't like the name. In the pub we were thinking of things that go with pepsi and settled on Jack (Daniels). One small problem after the 1st visit to the vets...Jack was not a lad but a lass so she's now called Jackie. I'm sure this confusion is why she's a nutter!

A hamster
I remember calling my third hamster
"Hugo-a-go-go Slartibartfast Hallam" and in the way that only an annoying child can, insisting on his full name being referred to whenever he was discussed. I can't imagine how my mother didn't kill me.

We also aquired an old Golden Retriever when we moved house, as the previous owners didn't want it.
Their name? "Ross"
The Dog's name "Rossit"

I can only imagine it was because of some sort of cross between Narcicissm and laziness, so that when you called the dog it sat. When I took him for walks I just called him 'killer'.

pet names
I have a good history of pet names.
'Wally' and 'Nibble' were my old dogs (it suited the personalities)
'Eric the Lady Cat' was my old cat.
'Felix' is my parrot
'Sugarplum' is my goldfish' and 'Muppet' is my current cat.

The ugly cat
I had a kitten that was extremely ugly, you could say it was fucking ugly.... so jokingly we called her "fugly" until we thought of a proper name. She is still called fugly till this moment.

When my sister's cat developed a flatulence problem, I tried to persuade her to rename it "Chicago".

You know...as in "Chicago...The Windy Kitty"

so surreal it's real...
My mom attracts animals like Merlynn. One cat in particular was fluffy and dreamy-eyed, stepped right out of a precious calendar. It was a feral, but my mom quickly charms the creature and begins to call it "Dolly." The cat was that sweet.

She managed to capture it and take it to the vet to be neutered to prevent more "Dollys" and create a starving feral colony, responsible, yes...

Later the same afternoon, she receives a phone call from a surprised the vet. It seems "Dolly" was a HE-cat with an undescended left testicle. The vet had spayed the poor creature anyway.

I suggested that she could call it "Dolly," amidst fits of laughter, just spell it differently, "Dali."

I told her that the cat was just polite and his testicle didn't "descend," because he didn't want her to be embarassed for calling him "Dolly."

Needless to say, she didn't think it was funny.

My neighbour had a dog called bobby. It got run over and had it had its back legs removed. His stump weas put on a platform with some wheels and he would scoot and woof all over the place. But he did sort of look like a robot. So they changed his name to R2D2.

3 legged cats
seems just about everyone had a three-legged cat with a three-leggedesque name, and there was us thinking Hoppy was ever so original. That's about it, although my girlfriend's vibrator is named Lancelot but I don't think this counts.

When I was younger we always used to have a spider that lived in the corner of the ceiling in the kitchen which my mum called Spidacus. I think we've had a Spidacus 2, 3 and 4 which she never used the bastard hoover on.

oh yeah,
i forgot mums tendency to give names to the wildlife that she leaves food in the garden for; too many to remmeber but included a blackbird family named after greek gods, two humungous rats (that used to come and eat the garbage outside our old house bout 10 years ago) called rat William and rat Henry ( obviously a big fan of the monarchy..) and woodpecker called something unpronouncable in Polish.

After our cat lost a leg there was a plan to rename her Eileen
My uncle had two cats named Platypus and Aedipus, which I've always though was really clever!

my last two rats..
were called Marvin and Vivian.
Marv after the manic-depressive robot from the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy as he was deviously clever for a rat, and disliked people intensely, giving them withering looks or deliberately turnig his back on you.
Vivian was his brother, and obviously missed out on the brain allocation by being resignedly fat stupid and violent, often managing to get himself stuck in tubes etc, then FORCING his was forwards instead of backing out, squeaking pathetically the worse he got stuck. He was named after the Young Ones character.
My parents also have a dog called Boris, after the former Russian president (Samoyed-russian breed of dog) and had considered getting another and calling it Gorby. they previously also had a cat called Lenin, as well as a Stalin and a Madame.
The current ones called Malakai (my naming, skitty bug-eyed creature from Lenore comics) a scrawny ugly stick-legged bat-eared Siamese thing who I think bears an uncanny resemblane to Thom Yorke, and b3ta-board-people just called plain vampiric
