Multiple pet names

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I know it's fairly easy to find names for a pair of pets... but what about groups of 4-5?

First group to name: my fish. Which I can easily tell apart from one another.
1 male
2 females
1 unknown (either a male who doesn't have the adult coloring yet, or a dominant female)
They're a fairly aggressive species and there's a lot of bickering going on (no serious injuries so far)

Second group: foster mice. 5 of them.
They are all males, all of them brown. I can't tell them apart at all... so maybe find a name for the group.
Only thing I thought of so far was to call them my "super-intelligent trans-dimensional beings"... but that's supposed to be fore white mice. Plus it's a little bit long.

I love these threads!

My suggestions are:

Fish (I went with a sea theme and picked celtic language names)
1 male: Dylan (son of the sea)
2 females: Cordelia (daughter of the sea /sea jewel) and Meredith (protector of the sea)
1 unknown: Murphy (sea warrior - suitable for a boy or girl)

5 brown male mice:
Donagh (brown warrior) (pro. done-ah)
Donnan (brown) (pro. done - en)
Donovan (brown black) (pro. done-ah-van)
Dooley (brown hero) (pro. do-lee)
Dunne (brown) (pro. done)

I picked a theme and went with it! currently going through Greek mythology, and I've done biblical names before as well as NASCAR related names, find a topic that interests you- american history, a fave book, supermodels, whatever!

My friend fosters cats for the local Humane Society, so she's always looking for groups of names. One litter was named for Peanuts characters (although Lucy ended up being a Linus ... it's hard to sex very young kittens); another was named for characters from John Irving's A Prayer for Owen Meany; one mother cat and her two kittens had African names; and the latest litter all have nut names (e.g. Peanut, Pistachio, Cashew, etc.). If my boyfriend and I had more pets, I think we'd follow the Buffy: The Vampire Slayer theme we started with (our cats are Spike and Oz). Being a geek is extremely useful when it comes to finding names for your pets!

If you like Harry Potter you could name the mice after the five Weasley brothers: Bill, Charlie, Fred, George and Ron.

And if you wanted to continue the theme, you could call your fish after the founders of Hogwards:

Rowena Ravenclaw
Helga Hufflepuff
Salazar Slytherin
Gordic Gyriffidor

Buffy was a great show to pull names from, that's where I got Willow.

I fostered two kittens once that I named Wally and The Beav. I suppose you could add Eddie and Lumpy to that. Beav had a friend too, but I can't quite remember his name. Gilbert?

A friend of mine is big on flowers...Daisy, Poppy, Blossom, Lily, Petunia, Rose, Iris, Pansy, Violet... It goes on forever. Only problem is you kind of need to be naming girls.

I have four fish...Uno, Dos, Tres & Quatro. (sp?) Real unique, huh?

Artists? Picasso, van Gogh, Dali, Monet, Michaelangelo, da Vinci, Raphael, Warhol, Goya...

Or authors?

I had a friend who named their cats after vacuum cleaners. I'm not sure what that was all about.

Well, that's all the thinking I can do for now.

I know someone who fosters and each litter of kittens is named all with the same letter - maybe something along those lines? Or you could just call the mice 'the boys' collectively.
