Cute Names for Cute Animals

Cute Pet Names

The name you give your animal has to be perfect!

For starters, the name should match the animal's attitude. You probably wouldn't name a scary dog "Angel" or a nice dog "Killer." You may also want the name to fit the way the animal looks. For example, a funny-looking cat could be named "Yoda," and a cute cat could be named "Cutie."

Take the time and do the research you need to do to find the perfect name for your pet. Here's a list of ideas!

I have two hamsters their names are Mary Kate and Ashley. I have a cat who has gone through names like crazy but his actual name is OCD, but friends call him blue and big head. I have a fish and his name is killer...only because he kills anyone who comes to visit...It is sad but he is a very lonely fish.
