2 years ago

Bella, Cindy, Snowflake, George — there are so many names to choose from. Picking a name for your little creature is a challenging task, but once the name is chosen, you proudly call your pet by its title and enjoy pronouncing every letter of it. And believe it or not, your pet’s name can reveal a lot about you.

Bright Side picked the most popular types of pet names that can cast some light on your personality. Please keep in mind that the article is for entertainment purposes only.

A food name

Name examples: Ginger, Cherry, Candy, Honey

What it means: If you give your pet a food name, you definitely enjoy eating. You love your pet just as much as your favorite dishes. As no surprise, food evokes positive emotions, and by naming your pet this way, you project this notion onto them. Rushing is not your cup of tea, and you prefer savoring things and enjoying every little moment of your life.

You are also a sociable creature — social bonds are of great importance to you. You also have a great sense of humor and love cute things.

A human name

Name examples: Max, Lucy, Daisy, Bobby (most popular names for pets)

What it means: If you gave your pet a human name, you hold your pet in high regard and treat it like a human. You think of your pet as a child or sibling. You talk to your pet and share your feelings with it.

You are a loving and caring person who treats every living being with respect. You are sensitive and observant. People value you for your honesty and positivity.

A historical or mythological name

Name examples: Thor, Napoleon, Frida

What it means: If your pet has a historical or mythological name, you are either a book-lover or a nerd. You are careful and sagacious, you plan ahead, and don’t like authority.

At the same time, you’re creative and have a strong sense of individuality. No doubt this is because you probably racked your brain for quite a while picking the wittiest name for your pet. You need meaning in life, so even your pet’s name should have a story to tell.

An animal name

Name examples: Bear, Tiger, or even Panda

What it means: If your pet has an animal name, it means you are a realist who always keeps a cool head. You try not to freak out in difficult situations, and reason always comes before emotion for you. You value nature, enjoy spending time outdoors, and love doing sports.

A title name

Name examples: Queen, King, Princess, Prince

What it means: You adore your pet and do everything you can to make it feel as comfortable as possible. If your pet’s name is a title, then you’re probably a softy. You’re quite sensitive and rarely hide your feelings. You also take pride in everything you have, like your pet, for example. You want to show how powerful and tough it is by giving it a title name.

A literary or fictional name

Name examples: Hermione, Luna, Romeo

What it means: If you gave your pet a fictional character’s name, then you are either a bookworm or an ardent fan of a movie or book. It’s not easy to impress you but once someone manages to do it, you leave an incredibly long-lasting impression. You like intelligent people so your pet should also have an intellectual name.

You always go for the unconventional, which is why you chose a unique literary name.

Do you have any pets? What did you name them?
