Names Inspired by Officer Ranks

If none of these names is a good fit for your pet, then consider giving your pet an officer rank. For example, you could name your goldfish Ensign Ricky.

  1. Admiral
  2. Captain
  3. Lieutenant
  4. Ensign
  5. Crewman
  6. Cadet
  7. DaiMon (Ferengi)
  8. Gul (Cardassian)
  9. Maje (Kazon)

Tips on How to Pick the Right Name

Behavior: Is your animal as manipulative as a Ferengi? Then try Quark. Does it want to snuggle up with you and comfort you? If so, then Troi and Neelix are good options.

Physical Characteristics: Think about how well your pet physically lives up to a name. Do you have a big dog, a fluffy cat, or a black rooster? If you have one small rabbit in a nest of bigger ones, then consider naming it Data or Seven.

Pronunciation: You'll probably be using this name for a long time so it's a good idea to pick a name that you can pronounce with relative ease. If Lwaxana doesn't roll easily off your tongue, then try a name that's a little shorter.
