Naming your pet is an important (and often a difficult) decision. We have come up with some ideas to get you thinking…
Do you have a favourite actor, singer, author, book character or song? Here at Vetsure we have had an increasing number of pet names from popular books and TV series such as ‘Sansa’ from Game of Thrones, proving popular for female cats. Try searching your shelves for inspiration!
Take a leaf out of Julie Andrews’ book and think of a few of your favourite things! This could be absolutely anything; a sport, food, drink, perfume, flowers or brand – the possibilities are endless.
If you want a human name for your pet, have you had a flick through a baby names book? After all they are your baby too!
Alternatively if you are looking for something more unusual why not try ‘Google Translate’ – for example if you have a German Shepard set the language to German and experiment by translating a few of your favourite things!
Where did you purchase your pet? The City, Street or County might lead you to the perfect name. This is also a nice way to commemorate where your pet came from.
Ask your friends and family for their ideas, they may come up with something you would never have thought of. How about posting a picture of your pet on social media and asking for suggestions?
Think about your pet’s personality for inspiration. Do they like running, jumping, playing or barking? This might seem a bit silly at first but try to think outside of the box, do their personality traits resemble anyone or anything?
There are many different websites which will give you ‘Top 10 names’ – well, here is our contribution:
