My guy's name is Simba! I bought him as an unwanted 4 mo old pup as he and 3 brothers were in the way of the breeders next birthings. I purchased him over the internet. He as in North Ohio and I live in Sounth Central NJ. His eyes were locked on my heart, I had to have him.

 

I never name a dog until I have seen him the first few hours, sometimes less than that. It has to be about the dog and his nature. Well, this guy looked like the little lion in the childrens movie about the Lion King. His fur, his paws, his playful sillyness and other characteristics told me that would be his name. Simba the lion cubby! He will be 2yrs young this Nov. 9 and he is more "Simba" every day. He brings me great pleasure. I feel like I will have a dog in my life as long as I can care for them. I am only 58 yrs young!

Re cat's name and why:
The person who gave me the cat told me it was a female. When I had her operated the vet told me it was a male! I had originally planned to call the kitty Mamzel which is French for Missy. I had to do a quick switch on the phone to the vet so I changed 'mam' to 'man' and he became Manzel!

I have a 7 year old Jack Russell mix, who is one big ball of energy. She is the most loyal and friendly little dog I know. I rescued her as a puppy of 4 months old. She is from Georgia, which is how she got the name Bella, as in Southern Belle".

Alvin, named after Alvin the chipmunk. He was so tiny when we adopted him that he fit into my husbands hand. He said this little guy looks like a chipmunk! I said well then "that's his name"! . He has grown up to be just as mischievous as his namesake. To think I had a long list of names all ready to choose from and I never even looked at it once "Alvin" was this apparent name❤️ He is such a joy. I named my Ginger cat "Rusty". The name suits him perfectly too. His a big fluffy Rusty ball with a rusty old temperament! Love him ❤️

Sophie's official name is Opheila, Callie's is Caledonia and we have a ginger tabbie named Levon. Back in the day I was very fond of The Band. They name enough characters to supply a lifetime of critter names. I was mighty sorry when Levon Helm passed on...

My last rescue is named Wallace, Wally for short. He got the name because he was lost and found his way to the Wallace Farm in N. C. He did some fence damage at first and for awhile I think he thought his name was dam# Wally. When I would come home from work, it was not if Wally had done something, it was what he had done. He is a Pointer mix. I have a female of this breed and when he was on the rescue site, he looked so much like her. She is Ginger and is older and pretty laid back. He is very spirited and does not like fences. I guess that is how he became lost in the first place. He has settled down some and is still growing. He is over 65 pounds now, but thinks he should be a lap dog. I have had several people who want him, but I think he belongs with me, Ginger and the two cats.

We have a 5-year old Golden Retreiver named Jake, because my husband liked the name (we had a Golden before him named Taylor, because my daughter liked that name).  We also have a 4-year old Brittany mix named Gracie Mae, but she came to us with that name (she's a southern rescue girl).

 

It's hard picking out dog names!  The only "rule" I've heard is to choose one that doesn't rhyme with "no."

I have a 6 year old Chihuahua named Jack after Capt Jack Harkness from the Doctor Who series. We rescued Jack from a breeder who had kept him separated from other dogs because of Kennel Cough. Jack was always scared when we first got him and afraid of men. It has taken years but he is a loving companion to myself and my husband. I named him Captain Jack because the character is a figure who goes through a dramatic transformation.
