    Former Minnesota Viking Mike "Superstar" Morris has a radio program on KFAN. He refers to Cris Carter as a "slapnuts jickyjack." I think either word makes a great pet name.

    "Here, Slapnuts!"

    "Come, Jickyjack!"

    See what I mean?

    How about "Stains". I can hear you calling him now...."come Stains". [​IMG]
    Or "Pooch". I like Pooch.

    Steven Wright claims to have named his dog "Stay" just to confuse him...
    It was fun to call him...
    "Come here, Stay. Come here Stay!"
    He went insane. Now he just ignores me and keeps typing.



    The X-Files' scully once had a dog named Queequeg, I think it came from Moby Dick.

    Our dogs are named Bob and Phoebe. Just think of an actual name that you don't see often, and use that. Is it a boy or a girl?

    Well, you could go for a reference to something (although that can weird people out sometimes). I think that a good rule of thumb is don't name a pet something that you'd be embarassed to call it in public or something that you'd be embarassed to give to a person.

    The best dog name I ever heard was one my uncle used for his cattle dog. This dog became so excited when anyone actually paid any attention to him, that he would pull back his lips showing all of his teeth (not snarling) and just wiggle all over. His name was Grinning Fool .

    I am rather fond of "People" names for animals. Don't get me wrong, it is VERY wrong to dress up pets in clothes and treat them like humans, but I just like the names like Jack, Marty, The Our-Gang classic: Petey, etc..

    Wolfgang.

    You don't hear it often, and it sounds kind of classy.

    Or you could just call him what I call my dog....

    NO! Stop it...No! Come here no! No no no don't pee on my curtains! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    No works also.

    I always liked it when John Wayne had one called,
    dooooog. Was always walking around just saying "DOG".
    Lots of funny 'bones' around here. [​IMG]
    Seriously, I may come up with some name ideas before I get an animal, but it's personality after I get it finalizes the choice. My last cat, marched up and looked at me early on, and 'Ben' popped into my head, (as if he told me...aka twilight zone) So Ben it was.
    Check out foreign languages, years ago we named a female Chow, the Italian name for 'white'. She was a cream cinnamon tipped.
    Look at the classics,Bible, (I used Kish & Shinar once from this) names of ancient cities etc.
    Use a web translator and look up Chinese language conversions (the origin of your breed) or something connected with the 'Forbidden City' where they were first bred.

    My son just got a kitten and named it "Zaboomafoo" (after some kiddie show). Obviously, that's too long a name for a cat to recognize, so he's commonly called "Boomer". My son especially appreciates the name when he cleans out the litter box after the cat has "boomed".
