Pet Naming Pandemonium!   6 comments

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?

  1. Loving the pop culture references. “Bob” for the skull ocurred to me too. “Jetsam” is quite a clever and subtle reference – will there be a “Flotsam” too?

    A lot of them aren’t assigned to a particular pet yet, but I brainstormed up some possible names over here

  2. My Sinister Squashling is also called Ichabod! I’ve only named about eight of my pets so far, really struggling to come up with names that I like for longer than 10 seconds.

    Your Giant Sewer Rat name will give me nightmares though, I hated that book when I was at school.

  3. Beru, these are wonderful.
    Do you mind if I steal your inspiration and blog about mine too?
