Geeks and their pets names
sorry for this post, couldnt think how to resolve....
being a geek in charge of a load of year 9s, got into conversation about the pets names of the rich and famous.....
some bright spark started an argument about the fact that geeks / techs etc..all have pets names that have some demonic connection.....now i dont have any pets, well one called butterscotch but i wasnt gonna offer that for slaughter (the comment not the rabbit)....
if you have pets what are their names.....i will anonymise all answer and present the data to them.....
i suppose i have to be prepared for the plethora of fangs, devils, and other morbid pets names...
as many as you can please.....i suupose you could anser from the point of view that if you had a pet what would it be called...
once again, for posting here, but if there is another collection of helpful guys like you all then tell me where they are...

All passed away now, but we've had Honey* (Hampster), Pamplemousse, Kisses* and Hearts* (All Guinea Pigs)...
That blows the demonic theory out of water heh?
* Explanation: I have two daughters - maybe if I had boys they'd have been called Hacker, Slasher, Maniac and Dexter?!

2 cats, Hex and Fudge, 2 guinea pigs named Ginger and Afro.
With the possible exception of Hex (who's a big black hulking farm cat descended lump of softy), there's nowt demonic about it..heh.

Dead cats - sammy and dellie (samson and deliah), kiwi - all black (met an untimely death in the washing machine), polo, short for napoleon he had a black patch over one eye.
Current cats -Rico named after a player in our local basketball team, same colour and same strangely high pitched voice for such a big person, and Jess named by my sons class.
Not geeky at all!

Nope: I have boys (and a girl) and we have had Rex (a rex guinea pig, boys are SO literal!), Chip, Midnight Squeak, Rose, George, Shadow, Silver, Indiana, humbug, Meatloaf, Smoky, Scruffy, and Che (from the teenager into revolution) - all guinea pigs, rabbits and rats.

We took on two kittens this summer. So, they are obviously named Freddie and Ashes.

I have a black Labrador bitch (am I allowed to use that word in this context?), named Rosie, AKA Boo.

Ready for this list?
I have a vast array of pets - while they aren't all mine - I will include them here
Without knowing whether you meant current pets or past pets, I'm including all information I have.
Psychorat, Mallow, Pest, Sweeney, Brownie, Sox, Sparkle, Stripe, Spot, Jay, Kara, Spooky, Alice, Sarah and lastly... Arwen.
Maisie, Spooky-Mouse, Mabel, Harriet, Ying, Yang and Coffee.
Pets that aren't mine (are my parents):
Daisy, Bella, Oscar, Ozzie, Murphy, Harry, Sally, Blair
Semi-tame Pheasant - Phil.
Lastly... Squirrel - Nutkin.
As you can see - quite a list, some have stories behind them, some not.
'Psychorat' is because she was crazy, she didn't stay still and was generally hyperactive - lovely rat though.
'Sweeney' - she used to rip hair out by the roots.
'Spooky' - was purchased during one of the earlier series of Spooks.
I hope this list is enough - if you need more information I'll be happy to provide it when I can

currently living with me: Juno the Springer Spaniel (also known as 'oi you lil' ***' or Worm) and the gerby-boys (gerbils that belong to my sister and are nameless)
living at my parents house: Jasmine (mum to my springer) and Wigga (real name Jupiter, brother of mine from same litter), the cats: Teazle, Whiskey Mac (ginger cat), Holly, Bramble and Daisy. And the chook called Tikka (or she might be Masala - she's the last of the curries left - we had 8 chickens at one point all named somethign to do with chicken..) Also got a horse called Paris and I used to have a horse called Milo.
Past cats have included: Cleo, Willow, Hazel, Pebbles, Black Cat and we used to have a mongrel dog called Sparky.
Not sure how we ended up with so many animals apart from my mum used to work for a vet (where most of the cats came from)
