I'll Choose Fun and Frivolous Pet Names Over Serious Ones Anyday

Choosing to bring home a cute, new pet is a big deal. Not only will you have to look after it, but it will eventually look out for you as well. If you love and nurture your pet, it will quickly become a part of the family (some say pets are just as important as human family members).

Picking a name for your pet should be a joyous occasion that all of your family can take part in. While everyone will have suggestions of their own, looking up pet name suggestions online is always a popular option. Unfortunately, you sometimes have to wade through some lousy suggestions to find good names. My hope is that this article gives you a lot of solid choices, rather than ridiculous ones.

This particular list will focus on cute, fun, and lighthearted names for your pet. So, if you want a name that will put a smile on people's faces when they ask, "What's its name?" then this list should give you an advantage. Thanks for paying a visit, and enjoy.

Personal Story About a Bird

When I was young, my brother and I found a nest that had been knocked down by a storm. We took the two little baby birds we found near the nest to our Uncle and Paw where they helped us fix a box for them to stay safe. Within a couple of hours, the mother came looking for the babies and actually taught them how to fly while we watched.

We were fairly close to the whole situation, and I often wonder whether the mama bird wasn't afraid because she had seen that we had tried to take care of her babies and only wanted to keep them safe or she was worried worried enough about her babies that she just wanted to get them out of there regardless of any risk we may or may not present. Now that we're older, me and my brother have talked about the experience often and have even told our kids of the experience.

When the cure for insecurity and meaningful conversation is to slap a cell phone against your ear, hide within you iPod, or tap out a cryptic instant message, is it any wonder that we find comfort and solace in hairy, furry and scaly companions?

Tips On Naming Your New Pet

  • Taking into account what kind of animal your new pet is may seem like something that people would automatically take into account, but that is not always the case. Write down on a piece of paper the characteristics of that animal and use that as a base for picking it's name.
  • Color can always be taken into consideration, but if you want to be different try to be clever when using the color of your pet in it's naming.
  • The personality of your new pet should always play a part in the name-giving ritual. For example, a very active and playful pet could be named "Romp", unless you wanted to be sarcastic and go in the opposite direction.
  • Take your time when coming up with a name. The one thing you don't want is to change your pets' new name after you've been calling it by that name a few days. This will only confuse them, especially if you do it more than once.

Be Proud of Your New Pet

I know that the above video is a commercial, but I just love how proud the owners are of the pig. They are not ashamed to take it for a walk, and that's the way it should be with any member of your family (human or not). I have a few friends that have some really unusual pets, but for whatever reason, don't want to show them off in public. I can understand if their pet poses a danger or threat to others (human or animal), but if that isn't the case, then why not expose them to the public at large? Most people (and other pets) would probably get a kick out of seeing an exotic or unusual companion.

Some of the Cutest Pets You Will Ever See

Not All Animals Are Meant to Be Pets

Although there are always exceptions to the rule (injured animals and animal babies whose parents have been killed) keep in mind that it is illegal in most cases to take animals from the wild and keep them as pets. If in doubt, it's always best to do some research and contact appropriate authorities to see if you can raise the animal as your own. If the green light is given, then you'll have a challenging, but totally unique pet-raising experience that you and the people you know won't forget.
