How about Arwen or Galadriel? You could call her Gala for short.

Who or What is your pet named after??

My Elkhound is named after a Resturaunt in our area Char House ,I raised Char on a bottle and he ate so much and was always hungrey we thought it fit. He's always been overweight and still is at nine. My 29 year old pony is named after a book written by Walter Farley on The Black stallions son Bonfire at the time I thought it fit , I was young and never realized there's a big diffrence between a racehorse and a small pony., anyway over the year's it been shortened to Bummy, he,s always begging for candy , has actually scared a few people who has came up to our house and didn't realize there was a pony on the loose till he put his head through the car window wanting a piece of candy.

Talking - Who or What is your pet named after?? Who or What is your pet named after??

This is so much fun!
My first is a chiwauwau we named Killer Todd ( Todd) after my DH. Killer because he thinks he is a big dog.
My second is also a chiwauwau we named Tiny Lynn. Tiny because that is what she is . I have no idea how we came to the name Lynn. It suits her though.
My third is a Ringneck Parrot we named Harley. Harley because at the time my DH wanted a Harley.
Last but not least my cockatiel named Bud Lite. Bud is because he is my little buddy and Lite because that is what he is.

Who or What is your pet named after??

I've enjoyed reading this thread so much!! So many creative pet names. Our Shih Tzu was named after Lizzie McGuire.... my daughter named her. Her full name turned out to be Baby Doll Princess Elizabeth. What a mouthful! But Lizzie suits her just fine!

We got our chow/lab pup shortly after the boxing match between Tyson and Holyfield. After the pup bit my daughter on the ear.... his name was Tyson... per my husband.

Our other pets are Chelsea,(dog) and cats, Kellie, Angel and Desiree. I don't recall why... but that's them!

Who or What is your pet named after??

I've had lots of cats and every name seemed to suit them. Right now I have 2 girls. My pure black one is named Marley after my dad. He lived in Houston, TX and no one could say Morley, it sounded like Marley. When he died of a brain tumor in 98, I was lucky enough to get her and she immediately became my Marley. She talks alot and loves to cuddle and suck on my ear. She will be 6 in Nov. The other girl in my life is called Gizmo, she is long-haired and black and white. She is very much a lady, she loves to cuddle. She has no voice so if I don't see her open her mouth, I don't know if she is talking. She was my little nurse while I was recuperating. She never left my side, she is a little dear. She was named after Gizmo from Gremlins, she is 4. My dog is a Lhasp Apso and terrier, she is blond and I named her after Carol Channing. Channing is 11 and still in good shape, she loves to sit beside me and hold my hand with her paw, I call it our bonding moments. When she is happy she smiles. I don't know what I would do without them. When I was alone, they were great company and someone to say hello to when I came home.

Great thread !!

I have 3 shelties------- The oldest ( and mother of the two boys) is "Jewels'", as she, from the get go at a pup, was the 'jewel' of my life -- more precious than any stone !!
Her sons are: "Bruiser" -- aptly named 'cause he was A BRUISER when he came out -- HUGE new born puppy and bruised his mom on the way out !........... And "Murray"--- named him after the dog on 'Mad About You' --- cause he kinda resembles him........

Who or What is your pet named after??

I've always named my cats after fave songs. Usually songs by Cat Stevens, ha.
I had a Moonshadow at one time. There's a rather obscure song by Cat Stevens called "Just Call me Jzero" and I named my next cat Tchzero (I didn't have the album handy when I named her and I mispelled it). I loved that cat! The neighbors kids called her Two Zeros. lol
Moonshadow and Tchzero have long since gone to the great catnip farm in the sky.
I inheirited a prenamed cat years ago, Sushi, that lived for 17 years, the last five with diabetes. She got two insulin shots a day.
She passed away 6 years ago. What a sweetie pie she was!
My current kitty, whom I adore, is a 15 year old snorfleed male (all my pets are snorfleed!) tabby mainecoon mix named
Way Cool, Jr. (after a heavy metal song by Ratt) He's the abslolute bomb! Love that lil guy.
If there's a cautionary tale (tail? hee hee) in his name, it's be careful what you name you pet when you're in your 20's. Some day you'll be 44 with a cat named Way Cool, Jr. eep. lol

Who or What is your pet named after??

I love this thread! My six cats and two dogs all have names (obviously) but are very rarely called by them except when they misbehave.

Our dachshund is named Babette (a french nickname for Elizabeth, my name). I sometimes call her PuppyWuppy or Boopy.
Our German Shepherd is named Strider (from Lord of the Rings). I call him Studley Do Right b/c he's so sweet and handsome.
Our black and white male cat is named Pippin (also from Lord of the Rings) but I call him Pippi or Sweet Lil' Guy which he likes.
Our red tabby male is named Owain (knew a guy named that and liked the way it was spelled instead of Owen). I call him Mommy's Red Headed Boy which brings his tail up in the air.
Our female Himalayan we found thrown away in a ditch (can you believe people?) is named Nina (had a Yugoslavian friend in high school named that). I call her BuddaBear or Baby.
Our gray and white female cat is named Cleopatra because she looks like she has eyeliner coming down her nose - pretty. Her nickname is Kittypoo or BooBooKitty.
Our persian/tabby mix female cat is named Natasha because she's very dainty, feminine, and needed a pretty and foo foo name. Her nickname is Polly Prissypants.
Our solid black female (and the most spoiled of them all) is named Tallulah (from a Tori Amos song) but we lovingly call her Poopyhead because that's what she acts like.

Welcome to my petting zoo!

My yellow lab mix is named Ginger because that is the color she resembles. My chocolate lab/Rhodesian ridgeback is named Bear. When he was born, he looked like a furry black bear.
