Welsh Collie is Princess Bala Vera; Bala after Bala Cynywd where my grandparents live in the States, Vera because when I first walked her at the RSPCA she veered all over the place and Princess because there's a Princess Bala in Antz (I think).
Cat is Otto because as soon as we got him from the rescue centre he kept running behind things and then coming straight back out, so he needed a palindromic name. Otto was all we could think of. Although he does get called Mr Wiggles on occasion. O.o
Yorkshire Terrier called Bear because the breeder had nicknamed him, and it stuck because of how very teddy bear like he is. Then there's the Labrador Bess, who was three when we got her so naturally kept her name. Misty, who is about ten different breeds of dog, was six when we got her and again kept her name. George is a Bassett Hound named because he was born on St.George's day.
The cats are Olivia, Harry and Treacle. Olivia, or Livvie, was named because my Gran had wanted to call a daughter that but never had another girl, Harry is short for "Harry the Spider" which comes from his ability to sense a spider three rooms over, and Treacle was another rescue who was already named.
Two cats; one called Chewbacca (startling resemblance for a cat!) and Bart - because the first Christmas we had him he broke every single one of our christmas decorations.
Chickens; Nutmeg, Sophie and Henrietta (my mumma named them aha)
I don't have a pet, but I had a couple of goldfish- (If that even counts!), when I was around ten. Suffered severe trauma when they swam their way up into goldfish heaven.
First Itchy died...
Yes, my fish were called Itchy and Scratchy. And I was SEVEN AT THE TIME AND I WAS DEVELOPING AN OBSESSION WITH THE SIMPSONS. OKAY?
I have three rabbits I got from an animal shelter
Blossom - She was originally called Mercedes, so we decided she needed a new, pretty name!
Odie - Not sure, just suited him.
Zelda - My sister is a huge fan of The Legend of Zelda, so she decided to call her exactly that!
I used to have a hamster called Bubbles, called her so because she had such a bubbly, lovely personality
