Naming Your Pet
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Welcoming a new pet into your family is an exciting event. Getting to choose a name for that pet is icing on the cake! There are so many choices. You don't want to make a mistake. You might name a white kitten Lily only to find out later that it's a Leo. It's helpful to know your pet's gender before you pick a name. Besides gender, there are other things to consider when choosing a name for your pet.
 
2     What does your pet look like? Some owners name their pets after the color of their fur, feathers, scales, or skin. Midnight, Smoky, Snowflake, Ginger, and Goldie are a few color choices. A pet with white paws or hooves might be named Boots, Socks, or Mittens. Tiger may be the name you choose for a striped pet. A turtle could be called Shelly. Tiny and Fluffy are other names based on a pet's looks.
 
3     How does your pet behave? A pet with a sweet nature might be given a name like Gumdrop, Peaches, or Cookie. Names like Dash, Rascal, Scrappy, and Mr. Wiggles might be a good fit for a busy pet.
