Booking Through Thursday - Pet Names

If you'd like to join in on Booking Through Thursday, just click the button above.

This week's question...

Do you have any pet that has a name inspired by your readings?

If not, what would you pick if you DID?

Do any of your friends have book-based names for their pets? (Or their children?)

My answer...

No, I don't but one of my cats' names was inspired by a TV character. Geiger is named after Jeffrey Geiger (Mandy Patinkin's character from Chicago Hope).

I don't have many reading friends, so anyone who named children or pets after fictitious characters usually named them after favorite TV or movie characters. I can't think of any book character I'd name a pet after - maybe Scarlet and Rhett (using the Gone With the Wind theme again - LOL).

funny cat pictures - Excuse me! Why did you put all this crap in my hot tub?

  1. Scarlett and Rett would be good.
    Love the cat picture.

    We have a cat, and he's got two literary names.

  2. OMG- Scarlett and Rhett is just genius! I love it!

    Here's my response:

  3. Growing up, we had a sheepdog named Chaucer (of the female persuasion).

    I hope no one closes the lid on the washer!

  4. Larry came with a name..And he seems like a Larry .

  5. I didn't post about this topic today...couldn't think of any pets named after fictional characters...then later, I realized that our cat Cleopatra was obviously based on the Egyptian Cleopatra....not exactly fictional, but close.

  6. My lady beagle is Angela after Angela Lansbury.

  7. I did name a cat Rhodri, I claim it's after Rhodri Mawr of Wales, but it's from a fantasy book ;)
