All of my rats are named after some of my favorite famous artists: Da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Jacopo.

We named our cat Skiggy because my boyfriend had a cat when he was little named Skiggy. The kitten now looks exactly like his older one, so definitely went with that name!

Most of the time it's just how they "look". Like, one day when I own a bulldog, he'll be named Henry; I don't know why, but the doggy in my head looks like "a Henry"!

This thread is for mice.
I have another thread somewhere called "how did your rats get their names?"...

I just thought of the cutest names I could, sorry it really doesn't help. My mom actually thought of Maya, but just because she liked it.

I want to have babies again in the future, and I am already picking out matching names for the babies Like Peanut, Pistachio, etc.

My sister used to have a mouse named Maja,which was pronounced the same as Maya.Those would be cute names.I love hearing names,because it gives me ideas for future fuzzies.

Mine's name is gretta, why? she looks like a gretta, i saw her and i was just like oh hi little gretta?!

That is how almost all the pets of mine get their names, they look like what they are. except my pup we named him before hand. but the first one i saw didn't look like a messi i named him damien. his sitter scooter, my other dog cooper i was going to name connar because it means most wanted, but cooper fits him better and it means barrel maker which makes no sense what so ever.
