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 stuck…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.

  1. Cat’s don’t always responds the way you want them to. Well, they’re cats.
    Our cat has a bookish name, not that he responds to it or any other verbal command. The only thing he really responds too is the sound of food 🙂

  2. OMG. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your cat. He is just adorable and has a great name!

    Here’s my response: http://blueeggbooks.blogspot.com/2012/05/booking-through-thursday_24.html

  3. Funny coincidence. I named my dog after Supergirl, too.
