Characters Worthy of Naming Our Pets After

Hello friends! After a few weeks long break, Clare and I are finally back with a Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) post!! Neither of us is particularly fond of children, so we altered the topic a tad bit, and are going to be naming our imaginary future pets today. 

FAIR WARNING - this post contains a ridiculous amount of cuteness, because we'll always say YES to gifs.

were I to have a pig, I'd name it after...

VIV (Moxie)
because she is smart and resourceful, but is doubted by others (and herself), much like pigs are, who, contrary to popular belief, are quite clever


were I to have a bunny, I'd name it after...

REV (Letters to the Lost)
as he's one of the softest, loveliest characters ever


were I to have a dog, I'd name it after...

NEMESIS (The Diabolic)
because even though she is far from being cuddly, she is a loyal and protective friend


were I to have a cat, I'd name it after...

THORNE (Lunar Chronicles)
because cats love attention, and are always aiming to look their prettiest


were I to have the chance of naming a meerkat, I'd call it...

because meerkats thrive in groups, just like Magnus does surrounded by his friends

were I to have a dog I would call it...

Because he is cute, he is slightly goofy and he is loyal as heck! 

were I to have a cat I would call it...

She is the literal definition of a cat person. Fierce, independent, loyal to a select view and sleepy. 

were I to have a lizard I would call it...

I've got to name something after my favourite demi-god and lets face it, he'd probably be super flattered (as he should be).

were I to have a hamster I would call it...

Cute and precious and must be protected at all costs (I still haven't finished the Falling Kingdoms series because I'm too scared). 

were I to have a dragon I would call it...

Princess Buttercup
The Princess Bride may be my favourite book and there's a part of me that thinks a dragon with such a fluffy name would be hilarious (and twice as fierce obviously). What do you mean dragons aren't real pets? 

question time! 
Mostly importantly, WHAT PET DO YOU WANT THE MOST? What would you name it? Do you know any of the characters we mentioned? 


  1. This is such a unique idea! I always think about what I would name my dog after when I get one in the future, and it always comes back to book characters! I think I’m settling on Leo because he’s my favourite character from the Heroes of Olympus series.

    1. Thank you! Leo is such a fun character, definitely worthy of naming your dog after. :)

  2. Ha! These are great animal names!

  3. Fun topic! I like Celeana! And Princess Buttercup lol- awesome. :)

    Viv's cute, and I like Percy for a lizard- it just seems to fit??

    1. Yess, Percy was Clare's idea, BUT IT FITS SO WELL. (Even though I don't like lizards lol.)

  4. I love how you choose the names not just because they are pretty but you associated the charaters personality with the pets. It was a great idea.

    I have 2 dogs and 2 cats so I have quite a few pets already but I always wanted a snake (I willnever get it but still)

    1. Thank you, we tried to make the post special. :D I'll admit that a snake would be a VERY COOL pet - esp. for a Slytherin like myself - but I'm so scared of them haha.

  5. These are all so perfect! I love all of the cute animal gifs so much xD
    I think having a Meerkat named Magnus would be EVERYTHING.

    1. Thank you! Yess, imagine naming various meerkats after the characters from Magnus.

  6. All of these names are definitely cute. But my favourite is Veronica. And now I am picturing it for a dog.. well! I don't know :D

  7. Aww this post is absolutely adorable! I love the name Percy for a lizard. It's such a good fit. Though Throne for a cat is pretty great as well, and it doesn't hurt that I love the Lunar Chronicles.

  8. Haha, I love your dragon name. It’s perfect!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. It was the first name that came to mind and it felt so obviously right for a dragon!!

  9. Ha ha love the way you did this and the names you chose are all great fits for their respective animals!

  10. I've always given my pets odd names (Tortellini, Figment) but none are from books - yet. I just need new pets lol

    Karen @ For What It's Worth

    1. Haha, those are some pretty cute names. Maybe more sensible than bookish names haha.

  11. This is a great idea for the topic! I love the names you chose for both the cats, they really suited well! :)

  12. Great idea for this week! Neville is a sweet name for a dog. Here is my Top Ten Tuesday

  13. I can see Thorne as a cat's name. :)

    Lauren @ Always Me

  14. Viv the pig... love it! :) And Rev from Letters to the Lost... oh my gosh, he was so precious. A dragon called Princess Buttercup. Ha!

    1. Haha, Viv the pig would be cute, right? And Rev, YES, he was the most precious, sweetest character ever. Deserves all the love.

  15. I love what you did with this topic, and I am in cute overload from all those pictures. yes, I love a fierce creature with a fluffy name too.

    1. Thank you!! Yay, I'm glad the pictures had the effect we hoped :D
