We have some weirdo names for our pets.
For a while, we were naming on color, that's how Jade got her name.
Mikel named Mushu, because we were originally told that he's a dragonscale.
Archipelago and Skerries are types of islands.
We have a woolly little rabbit named Swiffer, because he looks like a duster.
Our cats were No-More, and No-Less. Because there's 2 of them, no more, no less.
My platy is "Badnana", because she's a bumblebee and looks like a rotten banana.
My guppy is Squish, because my fiance thought that he'd squished her when she was a baby, until we found out that she always looks like that. lol
Long story short, names can come from all sorts of things.
Another shy name "Peek-a-Boo", that's what my piranha's name was.
