I wanted to name the parrot Verbal…after the character Verbal Kint in The Usual Suspects played by Kevin Spacey. DH didn’t like the name, so we went with “Senegal Sam”…which was probably a good thing since Senegal parrots don’t talk and it would have been really stupid to have a non-talking bird named Verbal.
I wanted to name Dog Number One “Cujo”. Obviously this was all kinds of wrong…not to mention that CUJO isn’t even one of my favorite King books.
I wanted to name the New Dog “Doomsday”…again, not a moniker a creature should be burdened with.
So that’s why the responsibilty of naming our pets falls to DH.
How did you name YOUR pets?
