Cat 1 - Bart. (Full name - Bartholomew). My brother and I named him after Bart from the Simpsons.
Cat 2 - Barney. Named after Barney from the Simpsons.
Cat 3 - Lenny. Named after Lenny from the Simpsons.
Cat 4 - Carl. I think you see the tradition going here.
Dog 1 - Indie. I'm inclined to say that she was named after Indianna Jones. She wasn't. My parents just really like the name.
Dog 2 - Ozzy. The couple we bought him off were Australian, we though it was quite fitting.
Horse 1 - Laurie. We're big House fans in my household!
Horse 2 - JD. My sister wanted to call him Jadey, but it was far too feminine. JD makes him seem like a character from scrubs.
My sister's Chinchilla: Joey. I can only guess this is something to do with her obsession with Friends...
My brother's snake: Jim. My brother was trying to be original and funny.
We also have a big pond, and we named all the fish. We're pretty unoriginal, so its pretty obvious why we choose them.
They're all orange you see...
Previous pets. ie. the deceased:
Cat 1: Whistler. Mama to the Simpsons. She's actually named after a ski lodge.
Cat 2: Paddy. I'm not too sure why Paddy was called Paddy actually...
Dog 1 - Merlin. After...well... Merlin. I miss Merlin!
Dog 2 - Benjy. He was just so cute, and playful. He just WAS a Benjy.
Hamster 1 - Dexter. After the cartoon network show...
Hamster 2 - Didi. After his annoying sister!
Horse 1 - Milly. Was actually my Mums friend horse and then she gave it to us.
Horse 2 - Butters. Was he named after the south park character? I don't know.
We've had numerous amounts of these, but the names I can remember are...
We also have some bats that fly about where we are, we called them Charles and Camilla, although I think there actually be more than two.
We also had some chickens when I was little, but I have no idea what they were called!
Like I said...we're pet people! I also have 3 brothers and 2 sisters. The house isn't quiet!
Growing up I had a dog called Henry. My first pets were fish, I named them Jessie and Noddy. Then I got a hamster, called Claire. I had 2 rabbits called Snowy and Sooty (original ). A fish called Goldeen. Two hamsters called Sapphire (Sapphy) and Hermione. Then two gerbils called Laurie and Smidge. Another dog, called Jacob (Jakey). A hamster called Alba. And now I have a kitten called Loki.
My first cat was called Smoky (even though he was black) named after my aunt's cat who I adored (still do - she looks like the tabby from the wiskas ads )
Our next cat was called Sooty - again black The one we currently feed (not technically ours - but we baby-sit him on occasion!) is a big ginger who has been christened Marmalade...gosh, really need to start thinking of more original names :P
Golden Cocker Spaniel - Poppii
Rabbits - Alfie (Mine) and (My Brothers) Benny
Cats - Molly, Barney, Marmie, Munch, Toby, Tony Jupiter, Peanut, Sammie, Fifi, Buster.
There isn't really a reason just look at them and name them :P Although Toby and Tony Jupiter look identical! So we called the younger one Toby Junior but ended up getting muddle up so he ended up being called Tony Jupiter :L Not very interesting but still :L ♥
