I will only talk about my current pets, lol, otherwise it would be a long post.
Thunder, my lab mix, came with the name from a kill shelter. We liked it and kept it. The people at the shelter named him.
Toby, my Golden, got his name, just because I liked it. I was torn between Jessie and Toby. But then, Toby sounded right and Jessie sounded a bit too girlish, lol. I had made a long list of names for Toby from the day I found out that his mom was pregnant with him and his siblings till I got him and still could not decide for a few days.
Dachsi, my dachshund, well he was a stray, did not know his name, neighbors that claimed he was not their dog, even though he was haning out on their porch till he got hit by a car, named him Elmer (Wabbit). I don't like the name Elmer. I called him Dachsi from the start when he would come and visit and follow me and my dogs around. When he found me after being hit by a car and the neighbors claimed no ownership and that he was a stray, he came to live with us and the name Dachsi stuck. Dachsi as in dachshund, of course I would say most Americans will pronounce it "Doxie".
Cuddles, my guinea pig got his name, because he would cuddle in my hands when I got him as a baby.
