Pet Naming

Postby Saviya » February 14th, 2013, 4:04 am

I don't know if there's been a thread like this but I'd love to get some more ideas for names for my pets. How do you name yours? For instance...

I have three bandicoons: Bacon, Ham and Porkchop
Mongooses: Rikki, Tikki and Tavi (after the mongoose in the jungle book)
Feral Vermling: Sweetums (kinda looks like sweetums?)
Nightsaber Cub (Simon), Cornish Rex Cat (Odie), Cinder Kitten (Vidi) all because they remind me of my real cats.
Purple Puffer: Fish Stick
Clockwork Gnome: Gerard... he looks like a proper english gentleman :D


so, what clever names have you come up with?

Clever? Dunno. But weird? Yes!

Here we go, in no particular order:

Tiny Harvester - Farmer Crankcase
Amethyst Spiderling - Spiderpig
Anubisath Idol - Conkers
Lost of Lordaeron - Dodgy Bedsheet
Jungle Darter - Bristow
Winterspring Cub - Snowblind
Fluxfire Feline - Cannon Cat
My three striders - Fred, Barney and Dino
Oily Slimeling - Blurgurble
Creepy Crate - Evil Toy Box
Grassland Hopper - Caine
Lil KT - Brain
My Serpent Hatchlings - Tyrion, Daenerys and Arya
Flayer Youngling - Edward
Pandaren Monk - Fen Sing
Plains Monitor - Fluffy
Terrible Turnip - Neep

And so the list goes on. Have a look at my pets on Armory, as there are many others with significant or just plain odd names.

:)

Arve,
alt namer.

I named my Porcupette Payne, because that's the trainer that I got it from.
I named my Ghostly Skull Bob because . . . well because how can you have a skull with glowing eyes and NOT call him Bob?

Since I'm a hunter I spent so much effort naming hunter pets that I'm kind of named out and haven't even started on the battle pets... But I like to read and consequently my naming reflects that. Some ideas:
Snowy Owl - Hedwig
Stowaway Rat - Scabbers
Orange Tabby Cat - Crookshanks
Core Hound Pup - Fluffy
Emerald Whelpling - Norbert
Spring Rabbit - Bunnicula
Worg Pup - Harold
Cornish Rex Cat - Chester
Darkmoon Eye - Sauron
Sporeling Sprout - Gollum
Spawn of Onyxia - Nazgul
Venomspitter Hatchling - Shelob
Gilnean Raven - Carc
Imperial Eagle Chick - Thorondor
Dun Morogh Cub - Beorn

My husband loves music (particularly metal - I have no clue what kind) and he likes to name his pets after musicians, song titles or even lyrics. Have fun!

I used to love the bunnicula books as a kid. Did you know they made it into a play?

All of my names usually have some kind of reference... mostly to TV shows/movies or books. here's some of them:

Personal World Destroyer- Unicron
Panda spirits- Aang, Katara, Toph, Zuko (I'm sure you can guess who's who)
Darting Hatchling- Wally West
Cheetah Cub- Cheetor
Azure Whelpling- Saphira
Imperial Eagle Chick- Zeus
Mr. Wiggles- Babe
Wild Crimson Hatchling- Mushu
Sea Pony- Horsea
Proto-Drake Whelp- Charizard
Fluxfire Feline- Ravage

There are some exceptions... some of my pets are named after friends, and others from WoW lore (mostly the dragons)

No I didn't! I need to go see that. Thanks! I honestly cannot wait to have kids just so I can read them all the bizarre adventures of Harold and Chester (among other books). :D
