25+ Pet Owners Who Had to Go on a Quest to Find a Name for Their Fluffy Friends

If a new fluffy pet appears in our family, one of the first things we need to do is to find a name for them. Everyone does this differently — some look at the appearance of the animal, trying to find distinguishing features, while others assess the animal’s behavior and habits. Eventually, it might require quite a bit of time to find the right name for a pet.

We at Bright Side took a walk across the vast universe of the Internet to understand how different people recommend naming their pets.

“I found this cutie on the street and decided to adopt her, any name suggestions?”

“Baby lamb came in who will need to be bottle-fed! How stinking adorable is she?! What should we name her?”

“Our new little chihuahua needs a name.”

“This little dude needs a name, any suggestions?”

“She’s 3 hours old and needs a name!”

“Just adopted this 6-year-old boy, he needs a name.”

  • Juno — this is my husky’s name! When I chose it, I thought it would be unique until I lived on a block with 2 other huskies named Juno. © Wheres_my_b***t_hat / Reddit

“Help me name him!”

“I’ve had this very good boy for almost a month, and still no name! He’s 8 months old and super chill.”

  • I adopted a dog who wouldn’t respond to the names I gave him. My uncle tried an experiment: he sat behind him while the dog was looking the other way (at me) and started reading from a list of popular dog names. 11 or so down on the list was the name, Rocky. When my uncle said it, my dog whipped around and looked at my uncle, like “yes!” And from then on, that was his name, and he came to us every time I called it. © G***l-Ocelot-8281 / Reddit

“My parents decided to adopt a family member today! Any name suggestions?”

  • My mother had a dog named Radar, she named him that not because he had large ears, but because he kept running into walls. © MidnightsSerenade / Reddit

“Any name suggestions?”

“Need a name for my kitten (male). Do you think Yuki fits him? It means ’snow’ in Japanese.”

“Rescued this little one today! He needs a name! Preferably French...”

“She still needs a name! Help!”

  • I am bad with names. I just call my cats Kitty or Little Badass depending on the situation. © ekszdi / Reddit

“Hi, this is my boy and I need a name for him.”

“Help! My new pup needs a name!”

“My new guy needs a name.”

“I need a name for this cute dog I just got! Any suggestions?”

“Now it’s my cat. Needs a name though so I can stop calling her ’the cat.’”

  • I’m failing to see a problem with calling her “The Cat.” My cat has a name, but usually gets referred to as The Cat. Or Bad Cat. Sometimes even Good Cat. But he is always The Cat! © Thebuch4 / Reddit

“This brave girl needs a name! Any thoughts for this ferocious little one?”

“I need a name for this cutie (female)!”

“He needs a name. I’m thinking Calvin.”

“Well...I have a new kitty and he needs a name! Any suggestions?”

“My new little bro — he needs a cool name!”

  • I don’t have a name but I am sobbing because he’s so freaking cute. Those little leg rollssssssss. © LaBeanBall1 / Twitter
  • That pup is definitely a “Snickers.” The chocolate coat with a little caramel on the nose! © dafw333 / Twitter

“Help me name my new one-eyed friend!”

“This new addition needs a name. It has to start with an ’S.’ It’s a girl. Ideas?”

“He was abandoned at my vet clinic by his owner. Very unique boy and very handsome. He’s a flame point Siamese.”

“My new kitten needs a name.”

  • With a mustache like that, whatever name you choose should have the title of ‘Sir’ and nothing less. Maybe even ‘Lord Mittens’ would do. © Aphobus / Reddit
