What do you name your pets?

Postby Zaelo » November 7th, 2012, 11:43 am

You guys enjoy renaming your favorite battle pets?
What's your favorite pet names you came up with?

All of mine still have their default names, but it's about time I change that.
I have no idea what to name them though, any suggestions?

I at least need to find names for these guys:
  • Magical Crawdad
  • Molten Hatchling
  • Fel Flame
  • Terrible Turnip
  • Flayer Hatchling
  • Celestial Dragon
  • Soul of the Aspects
  • Personal World Destroyer
  • Clockwork Gnome
  • Singing Sunflower

I'm going to start naming mine after my friends probably...I have one cat named after my irl pet cat, Jack.

Name the Crawdad Dinner. ;p

I sometimes name my pets sensible things, like for example my Core Hound Pup is called Ember.

Then sometimes I try to be funny. I have an Emerald Turtle called Sheldon. :)

And then there's just daft. My Tiny Harvester is called Farmer Crankcase. I wanted Farmer Crankshaft, but it was too long.

:D

Arve,

When in doubt I name a pet after a food I like. Like Pizza or Spaghetti. Really. Look at my list, haha.

Hehehe nice!
I'm not sure how to view your pet names though, when I look at your collection on here it only displays the default names, no information on custom names, level or rarity... :(

You click my name to the left, then on the new page under "contact FeliciaMarie" there is another link and it brings you to my warcraftpets.com page. On that page there is a link to the person's main toon on the armory. Mine would be Emmalie :P

I've been naming mine as I go.

Celestial Dragon is Spot
Pandaren Monk is Bo Stick
Terrible Turnip is Radish
Onyxian Whelpling is Mom Loves Me

Some are harder to name than others, but they will all tell me who they are sooner or later. :lol:

I started naming my pets. Then, I realised they can be male and female.

And suddenly I had to rename my Lashtail Hatchiling to Adrian, my Crimson Whelpling to Rielstraz, decide that Sasha was an unisex name, Jack became Jackie, Jackie became Jack, and Jess got the slightly less feminine name of Jason. (All my cats get J-names)

Kinda still crossing my fingers that my Pet Bombling, Little Boy, is a male, since I haven't actually checked yet.

Intending to name my Worg Pup, Pug, and Quilien Cub for Rin, Tin and Tin.

A trio of magic pets for Bibbety, Bobbety, Bo, maybe?

Already got the sunflowers Do, Re and Mi

A mouse named Hickory

Giving my dragon whelplings names according to their flights ofc. Rielstraz for the crimson, Jarenestra and Lenestra for onyxia whelpling and dark whelpling.

It all depends really. Sometimes I use the first name that pops into the head. Sometimes I take ages thinking about the perfect name. Sometimes I plan ahead before even getting the pet. And sometimes I do completely random names for fun (like GnomeDeathKnight the Panda Monk and YoungForestBoar the Phoenix!) :P

Heheheh there's a lot of awesome suggestions here! Thanks all, I feel quite inspired to find them cute funny names now! :D

Particularly like the magic trio of Bibbety, Bobbety, Bo XD

I thought of maybe making a trio of Personnal World Destroyer - Bender, Magical Crawdad - Zoidberg, but am unsure which other pet/futurama character to add to complete the trio hehe (these two being awesome tanks/stallers, it'd probably be best if the 3rd member was a good nuker)

Ok, I found names for three of them (the three I usually use nowadays anyway), I think I'm on the right path :)

Fluffy (Magical Crawdad)
Snowball (Fel Flame)
Meatloaf (Terrible Turnip)

I named my two Fel Flames Flick and Switch for some odd reason! :lol:

I think a cute name for the Terrible Turnip would be Lil Beets or something like that.. xD I named my Flayer Hatchling Manny like the mantis from Bug's Life.

At this point, I've named at least 100 or more of my pets and continue to do so as I think of names. Here's what I either have or plan to name the pets the OP listed.

I don't name my pets...my 9yr old daughter does. She's only named a few and I can only imagine her thought process for some of them.
