I have a striped tabby. These are her names:

Formal: AmberBelle

also:

Amber! As in "Amber, get off that re-upholstered antique chair!"
AmberSmell: when she's being contrary
Belly: when she's on her back showing off - this is the one we use most often
Smelly: because it's funny and she doesn't have a clue
BellyFlop: for no particular reason
BellyFish: also for no particular reason


We just gave her 2 new names this week:
vonBelly
McBelly

there seems to be a never ending trove of names for her ...
I wonder if she secretly has names for her owners? hmm...

I have two small dogs, Teddy and Chloe. Sometimes I refer to them as s***head or pain in the a$$. Otherwise, it's Tedster, Teddy Boy, Teddy Bear or Tedders. For the female: Chloe Bear or Chlo.

I brought home almost all of my moms cats, yea your welcome mom.

I found the first one in a parking lot at the park and surprised her with the usual "I'll take care of it, I'll feed it, I'll pay for the shots..." but didn't. Hehe..

Anywho, I named her Lucy. First I based it on Charlie Brown's frienemy and her rough personality. This kitten was the devil...then realizing how devish she was decided Lucy-fur short for Lucifer cause she was just that, evil. She would attack the dog, attack us, playfully of course. She was adorably evil.

Then later on we started calling her Lu-Lu and then Noo-nooz and rarely ever called her Lucy. She's gone now, hopefully raising havoc in kitty heaven.

Her brother, Peanut, was also called Pea-nutty and Peany. Dot, their younger sister, of course became Dotty and Dot-Dot though I called her dotty-potty. Then came Andy. Again, I brought home Andy. Don't remember where he came from though...Andy-Pandy is the only other name he picked up.

Who doesn't have rediculous names for their pets. :)

Old dog: her name is Tosha. My dad hates her name so he calls her T bear or sometimes T Bearicus Unum, which is "Latin." When I was nine I called her the doggy in the red pajamas. Wtf I was such a freak.

Young dog: his name is Jack. We call him Jackie Boy which is pretty dorky and also LBJ which apparently stands for Little Boy Jack but I think of...Lyndon B. Johnson. I secretly call him Ajax because that's what I wanted to name him in the first place.

Rabbit: We call her Hazel. That is all.

We had to give two of our dogs away, so now we only have Leia, who has no other name, but the other two had nicknames.

Bender- Bendy, Trouble, Doggish

Tara- Tara Girl, Raptor Dog (a yorkie that could open doors like the raptors in JP)


We also have a fish named Farnsworth, though he is most commonly referred to by all as Demon Fish.

Whoa I'm wrong....my neighbor gave my mom Lucy, we rescued Peanut from my dad who doused him in flea powder and almost killed him, I brought home Andy from the parking lot....Dot came from a neighbors litter.

I had to clear that up.

We have a dog named Rosie. She was supposed to be an Old English Sheepdog (think 6+ inches of fur), but she's a Border Collie cross instead, so her fur is mercifully pretty short.

I call her fluff, fluffa, or fluffadog; mostly as a reference to what we thought we were getting. Or dumbass, because she is. :tongue

My husband calls her the Old English Sneezedog, because she grins and sneezes when she's embarrassed or excited. (which is most of the time.)

Actually, come to think of it, the only time I call her Rosie is when she's been bad or needs to come here right now.

I had a bunny named Jefferson. Go figure. He was a black and white and lop eared. He was either potty trained or too afraid to move, I had him in my room alot. I'd sit him on the bed while I did homework...he'd drink my kool-aid.

Jefferson as in AIRPLANE???

Our last bunny was named Nibbles. Nibbles got an infection and died when he was seven. A week later, which was Easter week, Hazel appeared in the yard of an old lady that does bible study with mi madre. Hazel is a God bunny.

I wanted to name her Frank, as in Donnie Darko, as in Frank is my best imaginary friend.

AmberBelle was mauled by a dog and we got her from the shelter - she doesn't have a tail.
I used to have KatieBelle - notice a pattern? I had her for 16 years and only invented 2 nicknames for her: Dippy and Little. She died in February.

Amber, for some reason, has caused me (us - my husband and I) to be more prolific - I think because she has more of a screw loose.

Five cats. Aside from their proper names: Fuzzy butts, Flea-bags, Pretty kitty, Nuisance, Pesty, Get off the keyboard #*&@%!, and sometimes just the plain #*&@%!

I did have a cat, a Siamese, when I was a child whose name was Gypsy Ting-a-Ling Tingumabob Hairball Boobaloo. The Gypsy part was from my mother, after Gypsy Rose Lee, because she shed. We called her Ting, which was just as well.

I also had 3 cats once over whom I put my fertile imagination to work: Cat 1, Cat 2, and Cat 3. The dog at the time was Dog. None of them came when I called anyway. :D

Our dog is called Minnie, aka Min-Bag, Minnie-Moo and plain Min. By me.

My husband, who can't stand her, calls her Git-Bag. And Darth. As in Darth Vadar, because of the sounds she makes when she sleeps. As in: "The farce is strong with this one".

He also calls her The Terry, after the Viz character Terry Thickwit.

And BinBag, cos she's black and full of rubbish.

Vacuum Bonce (bonce = slang for head)

I told him once to stop calling her such names, as he'd give her a complex. He snorted. "You couldn't give her a complex," he assured me. "A simple, maybe, but not a complex".

It's a measure of how he loves me that he puts up with her at all!

My cat's formal name is Midnight, but he has always been "Kitty" and occasionally "Meow." He lives with my parents.

Can I answer this question for my husband instead? :) Apparently, lacking pets, we've turned to nicknaming each other.

His name is Kelson. I only call him Kelson when he is with other people and I am attempting to get his attention. Otherwise he is, in order of most to least common:
Boy
Boy-boy
Lovie boy
Bestest boy
My love
Lovies
Man
Husband

My name is Nikki. I am:
Girl
Girl-girl
Snicky
Snicker-doodle
Inky
Squirrel (rhymes with "girl")
Anything that rhymes with "icky."

We call each other "boy" and "girl" so constantly that I have to stop myself from doing it in public. Methinks our nicknames might have to change when we have kids or things are going to get confusing.

Now THAT I get!! I am the youngest of 4 and my brother was the worst for names for me!! (Bratface, Shrimp, Marty Frank,.... my mom called me Angel though!:D )
I have one pet name for each of the boys, and when they are in trouble, the longer the name, the deeper the sh*t! (I must channel my mother that way. I hated when she did that!)
