I named most of my mechanical pets after the noises they should make. Clink, Clack, Clank, etc. I named my fluxfire kitten Whrrr. I named my dragonlings the latin names for the seasons and all my frogs after forms of alcohol (with the exception of Ralph the Biletoad). I try to stay in themes as well, because it makes the naming process soooo much faster. I named most of my beasts after the Indian tribes that used them as totems. At least one mouse had to be Reepicheep. My Rapana Whelk I named Uzi because it made me laugh. My guildmates have been having a field day naming some of them...Terrance the Terrible Turnip and Francis the Yeti. I named the spiders after all the noises I make when I see one and my bat Bruce Wayne. My chickens are named Piccata, Marsala and Tso. Fleep the Curious Oracle Hatchling and Grawr the Curious Wolvar Pup. It's fun, but I have to do it in stages...soooo many to name.

Adoring your globule's name. Very brilliantly chosen. And I did notice your witty way of using the DIVA gals from the Race in there.

@ Usako -- good eye :) I've been part of that scene since the early 90's in NYC, and now Chicago... so the puns come easy, the language filter is another issue...

All my 25s have names, as do all my pets that I intend to level to 25. (I've also helped name a guildie's pets, and she has a LOT of level 25s, I had to stop naming hers, lol). Most of my names are based on the teams I have things in (via addon), here are teams...

- (25s)Team "Oldies But Goodies": Sunshine (Singing Sunflower), Lovely (Widow Spider), and Rebel (Black Lamb).
- (25s)Team "Faerie Tales Tell": Charming (CLockwork Gnome), Kiss This (Horny Toad), and Maniacal (Infinite Whelpling).
- (25s) Team "Blizzard Fanclub": T B C (Legs, stone), Faithful (Lost of Lordarean), and M O P (Pandaren Monk).
- (In Progress) Team "Simply Adorkable": Saur Disposition (Zandalari Footslasher), Lightbulb (De-Weaponized Mechanical Companion, stone), and Chew Toy (Stitched Pup).
- (Personal Joke, In Progress) Team "Tribute Band: Aerial Assault": Soul (Tiny Sporebat, because 'Wanderer' is reserved), Firepower (Phoenix Hatchling), and Constellation (Celestial Dragon).
- (In Progress)Team "Love Stinks": Heart Burn (Peddlefeet, stone), Sickly Sweet (Toxic Wasteling, stone), and Dear John (Stinker).
- (In Progress) Team "Addams Family": Wednesday (Darkmoon Eye), Morticia (Ghostly Skull, stone), and Cousin It (Giant Sewer Rat).
- (Inside Joke, In Progress) Team "For the Dawn": Healing Heart (Giraffe Calf, stone), Creativity (Cenerian Hatchling), and Bright (Cinder Kitten).
- (Not complete) Team "Hocus Pocus": Bubble Bubble (Swamp Croaker, green), Toil (intended to be either the Feline Familiar when I get stone or the Lil'BadWolf when 5.3 drops), and Trouble (either the Arcane Eye or the Gusting Grimoire).
-And for guild event I may put together a Harry Potter Team... was thinking Nagini, Hedwig and either Trevor or Buckbeak. :lol:

I have more that are not in teams, just named randomly, but that is a long list, so I will not post it all. =)
Madoran (Horde-US): Eclectic, Tauren Guardian Druid.
Fenris (Horde-US) 'Main': Miach, Undead Holy/Shadow Priest.

My best one is my Minfernal. Named it after the rock monster in Galaxy Quest, Gorignak, because it looks just like him, only green instead of tawny.

I confess I haven't really started naming pets, although I do tend to name hunter pets. But reading this thread has got my interest up. Right now the only one I've named is a yellow moth I called Fairy after the little fairy Mothra in Rebirth of Mothra.

Now if only I could have a moth as a flying mount...

A new wave of pets. A new set to name. Anyone come up with anything good?

Personally, my Unborn Val'kyr was going to get a Digimon reference, but after the long search, ended up as CarmenSanDiego.

I've taken to naming the Raid pets after people who I originally did those raids with who have since "retired" from the game. A fun way to remember people you liked playing with.
