Booking Through Thursday: Pet Names

btt buttonDo 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?)

When Dad was first looking to adopt the current kitty, the shelter had tagged him “Sigmund.” I liked the proper sound to the name, and thought we should add to it: Sigmund Dewey.

Dewey of course inspired by Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched The World.

But Sigmund or Sig never stuckā€¦the cat responded more to a Z sound, “Zig” so quickly wound up Zig or Ziggy (or Ziggster or Zigmeister or any of a number of in-the-moment names).

I’ve also had it in my head for a number of years that I’ll eventually adopt a pair of cats, naming them Kal and Kara, after Superman and Supergirl from DC Comics.

Not sure that I’m aware of family/friends with pets or children having book-based names.
