You may, or may not, know that I’m an avid non-combat pet collector. I have 203 different unique pets. Since the patch hit, you have been able to name your pets. When I’ve had down time, I’ve been slowly working through some of them and assigning names. I’ve been having a ridiculous amount of fun picking names for them. As such, I thought I’d share a few of the names I’ve come up with! (What else you may, or may not, know is that I’m also a Disney fanatic….but that will become clear soon!).
Lucky – Black Tabby Cat
JohnnyFive – Clockwork Rocketbot. If you don’t get it, you don’t have the wisdom that comes with age! Or great 80’s movies starring Steve Guttenburg!
EvilAsh – Crawling Claw. Bruce Campbell is my hero.
Jack – Creepy Crate
Nala – Darkmoon Cub
Hindenburg – Darkmoon Zeppelin
Abu – Darkmoon Monkey
Snacktray – De-Weaponized Mechanical Companion. This one is a bit of a joke – we handed this pet out as an “event” as we were learning Sinestra, and one player – Snacktray – hated the event…but then used this pet EVERY raid after!
Bibbitibobitiboo – Enchanted Broom
Kit – Feline Familiar. My Charmed fans should get this!
Fillion – Tiny Firefly. Does this need any explanation?!
Rex – Fossilized Hatchling
Bob – Ghostly Skull. Long Live Harry Dresden!
Nimh – Giant Sewer Rat
Iago – Green Wing Macaw
ZugZug – Guild Herald
ReadyToWork – Guild Page
Judis – Hyacinth Macaw. I farmed, and farmed, and farmed for this pet. One day I logged in and saw that I had mail from Judis. It was all nicely gift wrapped and everything! Lo and behold, he had found a Hyacinth Macaw on the AH for 10 gold and sent it my way!
Bambi – Little Fawn. Oh, don’t worry! The whole crowd is here!
Moose – Lucky Quillen Cub. I think Harry Dresden might be my second hero…
Flotsam – Mana Wrymling
Prynce – Mojo. From some reason “Prince” is saved – but I couldn’t resist the idea of naming a frog you kissed Prince!
Charlotte – Mr. Wiggles.
EgChen – Pandarian Monk. The only way that Big Trouble In Little China could have been better was if Bruce Campbell had been in it!
Petey – Perky Pug. Named after my brother in law’s Pug…who is the friendliest, ugliest, smelliest, most lovable dog you’ll ever meet!
Dinner – Plump Turkey. I…couldn’t help myself!
Lashaah – Sen’jin Fetish. One of my favorite people that I’ve met in game. Sadly he’s retired…but I’d still do just about anything for him!
Jetsam – Shimmering Wyrmling
Ichabod – Sinister Squashling
Thumper – Snowshoe Rabbit
Pascal – Sprite Darter Hatchling
Flower – Stinker
Kalie – Worg Pup. Named after my puppy!
Phew! And there are still so many left! I don’t know if I’ll ever get them all named. But, each time I find I’m sitting in Org I open up my pet book and scroll through to see if I’ve had any new inspiration. It seems such a small thing, but it really has been quite fun. I’m a little scared of how sucked into the pet battles I may find myself!
Have you had any creative favorites for your pets?
