    Any other weirdos besides myself that do this?
    I have a 6-year-old Russian Blue named Ash, from The Evil Dead: Ash
    My other beast is a 3-year-old Maine Coon/something. I christened her Ripley, from--you guessed it--the Alien:
    "The Talented Miss Ripley"

    Well, my little domestic short-hair is named Maggie the Cat, after my second-favorite Liz Taylor role.

    I have a cat named Cassidy after Neal Cassidy of Merry Pranksters fame.

    I have another cat name Isabella. We refer to her usually by her rap name, which is Izzy B, or sometimes just Izzy.

    My wife and I named our cat Seraphine, after the woman in "American Werewolf in Paris". Our dog's name Chloe, came from the Mother Love Bone song "Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns".

    One of our cats is named
    Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez, known as "The Cat".
    For anyone who hasn't seen The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Tuco is The Ugly, played by Eli Wallach.

    I think it's best to name your animal after another animal.

    For example to name your dog "kitty" or something like that. Or maybe name him after a charcteristic not usually associated with that animal, for example a goldfish named "killer"
