    I've lived with and had lots of pets, but they were all named by others. My first pet as an adult is Alfie, a Fox Terrier. Here he is in the park last week.

    Unfortunately I've sided with my wife's method of naming pets.

    Our cat is Brandy.

    Previously, she's had:
    Guiness
    Sherry
    Bacardi (!)
    Archer

    And she's teetotal |:

    Now you see, I told the children that Smudge was a cat's name and not a dog's name. In fact I have met hamsters and rabbits called Smudge as well

    Re:alcoholic names - my mum took in a dog called Sherry (it's original owner was a drinker) but she couldnt bear to call 'Sherry' so she renamed her Ceri (short for Ceridwen, pronounced Kerry)

    This is a picture of Smudge. He is a mixture of Staffie, (about 1/8th, the vet reckons) and some sort of terrier or three - we think...

    Well it took a lot of nudging and poking to get me to agree to Brandy. Said it made her sound like a pornstar

    makes interesting reading, especially when you combine the data for what people have chosen to call themselves and what avatar picture they have chosen, and what their pets names are...however it appears that partners/parents/spouses and children have an impact on the household pet and not simply the geek answering the question.....i was of the opinion that us geeky types should have strange names, such as Gates, Jobs, Hawkings....plus the usual smatterings of deathound, fang etc...i am having to readjust my opinion, however i guess there may be others out there with stranger names/avatars..going to contact the great grumbledook and twozeroalpha, etc.....

    to all who have answered thank you it will allow me to:

    1.answer the year 9 with a definitive answer .....
    2. prove to the year 9 that i am indeed a geek (by using a forum to ask the question)

    number crunching soon....cheers all

    butterscotch (3 legged rabbit - due to an unfortunate accident...perhaps i should have called him eric- eric the half a rabbit)
