Does your pet have a human name or a pet name?

I have two pets with "pet" names (Hobbes & Frosty) and two pets with human names (Trey and Lacey).

How about your pets?

    I personally prefer descriptive names for a pet as their name tells you so much about their personality..But then again a pet name could still be used as a human name but still be descriptive of the animal...It just all depends.. I have a little chihuahua named Missy and yeah that name to me really suits her. I also have 2 zebra finches named Beauty and Beast i love their names it says everything about their personalitys lol... What do you prefer?

    One with a pet name, and one, human name. The one with the pet name, is not too much of a pet name, as it is used for term of endearment for a person.

    I have a dog named Angel [I guess that's kind of a human hippie name] a cat named Sylvester [a pet name] and a tortoise named Leslie [a human name]

    I have three dogs. Two have pet names (Sugar and Prince). My other dog's name is Elvis. I don't know too many humans with that name anymore but it is technically a human name.

    Unfortunately, my cocker spaniel has a human name: Sandy. Because of that, I'm afraid she think she's a human. I just don't have a heart to tell her that she's a dog.

    Consider this a lesson learned: Always give your pets non-human names so they won't think they're humans.

    How is the difference determined? Is there a list? I know a child named Vincina? Is that a pet's name? Oh, I know..I should just shut up and use my common sense! lol

    Well, I have Sadie, my hearing dog. She hears for me.♥

    Sadie is Sadie cause no one wanted to holler out STELLA!
