    Talking Why Did You Name Your Pet That???

    Why did you name your animal that?

    Okay I'll go first.......

    Bailey - was named that because when she was a pupper she was the exact colour of Bailey's Irish Cream. Then as she started turning a darker red colour I looked up the meaning of Bailey - Protector of all things! So it always seemed to suit.

    Tyson - Was named after Mike Tyson as when brad went and looked at the litter (he was 18 when he got Ty now 27) he picked up Tyson and rested him on his shoulder. Tyson snuggled up warmly into the crook of his neck and then CHOMP he bit brads ear! LMAO!

    Mully - Was her original name from her original owners because when she was a pupper she used to eat 'mulled' marijuana so therefore got the name Mully.

    Monte came to me as a rescue with the name Monte.

    Molly (my cat) came to me as an orphan with that name.

    Boofy I wanted to call Splat, but my husband didn't like it and he was such a boofheaded little Pug so we called him Boofy.

    Kimba already had her name when we got her, we thought it would make the transition easier if we kept it.

    Madeline - because I wanted a girly french name and it was the first that came to mind.

    Griffen - was kind of spare of the moment. We had about 4 names picked but couldn't decide which suited him best. The 3rd day we had him Madeline attacked him and my OH rushed him to the vet (I wasn't home at the time) They needed a name to put on his file and the only one OH could remember right then was Griffen.
    But it suites him as he has the heart of a lion even if he acts like a chicken sometimes.

    Jethro was already Jethro, Millie was Indy and it was only changed because my daughter liked millie better, Freya is a witch that was carried on a charriot (sp?) by a golden tiger and it was a bit different to all the usual orange cat names and Inka is because she looks like the colour of Ink when the light is shining off it.
