I named my male Bengal cat Gryphon mainly because I liked the name and his aunt's name is Ginger so I wanted something beginning with a G. It now fits him because he is so big -- 20 lbs. -- that he looks like he has a small head. My one friend said he is like a battleship moving across the floor.

My daughter and I each got new kittens.  She named her female kitten "Eleanor", and wanted me to name my male kitten "Franklin", after the Roosevelts.  I thought about it for a moment, and took it a different direction.  I named my kitten "Rigby".  If you're a Beatles fan, you know why!

Our little cavachon princess is named Carly after Carly Simon because they both have the same hair.😊  Some people won't know who Carly Simon is. She is a singer and can be found on YouTube.image.jpeg

There is no such word as Mamzel in the French language.   The word for Miss is Mademoiselle.

I'm a fan of the Bard too!  I've had a Portia and a Phebe, but my boy dog didn't fit any of the names, so we went with Jester, because he is such a clown.

My lab's name is: Hoss Cartwright is his legal name we just call him "Hoss", because he is BIG and was a puppy as well.  Once I told the children the name which made complete sense to me they looked at me like I just stepped off the space ship.  I said Hoss from Bonanza, they still had no idea at this point they are looking at each other like "oh no is mom o.k?" and then I said if you haven't watched Bonanza I have FAILED YOU AS A PARENT! I made them watch it (reruns) so they wouldn't start thinking their momma was losing it, different generation different vocabulary.

I usually choose people names, whatever strikes me when I look at the dog.  I have a Mickey, Ginger & Janie and Tessie, the latest addition.  The cat is named Ellie May.  For Ellie May Clampett of course as they are both quite beautiful.
