Does anyone have a good story on why you named your pet or children what you did?
We named one of our cats Emby, our grandson was here when she was born. He has two great grandmas with the same name, Martha Brooks, one grandma is white, the other black. The cat's face is divided right down the middle, one side white the other black. MB = Emby
At a nursing home where my husband used to sing, there was a sweet old woman names Helen Beasley, her smile would light up a room, and her hair was just the color of an Rhode Island red. We also had a some very gentle Rhode Isand reds, we named them Helen Beasley.

Cindy, here's one for ya. When my husband and I bought our first buffalo she was 5 months old, large but sweet at 4 months old she weight about 400 lbs. We could not think of what to name her so one day I went out to feed, and found NO buffalo, I searched all 3 pastures thinking that maybe the kids had left open one of the gates, walked for about 1 hour checking for fences that may have been down. No buffalo, so I went into the barn got a can of corn out of the feed shed and I heard a noise coming from one of the goat birthing stalls and some how she had got into their and went to sleep, personally I don't know how she managed to get thru the door but she did. So I called Hubby up and told him I had the perfect name for the Buffalo, LULU because I could see then that she was going to be a LULU to deal with! Isn't funny how things just come to you at that moment. Until then we had tried to come up with a name, but nothing seem to fit. Tracy

We have two long-haired yellow tom cats (fixed of course). At first we had a hard time telling them apart because they're so exactly alike. My grandson was six at the time, so he named them Hunter (because he is the feisty one!) and Copy (because he looked just like the other one.)
Wishing you enough.
