My kitty's name is very unoriginal (Mittens) but in my defense my 2 year old named her. My dog is Isis (because I am a huge Egyptology fan) my bf's dog is Sly (bc he is sneaky?) we had a Rottie named Nemesis (greek God of revenge) a Great Dane named Diesel, and a cat named Chiquilla (little one in Spanish) I WANT to name two dogs either Smeagal and Gollum or Marvel and DC :)

Apparently, there are far more Care2 readers that are cat lovers than dog lovers. The cat name list has 317 comments while the Dog names list only has 117! Granted, the cat list has been up longer, but not that much longer!

Or maybe, dog people are less opinionated than the cat people....

A German Shepherd I would definitely call Rex. For almost 18 years I had a midsize Pommeranian, his name was Prinz and he was a little gentleman.
A year ago my daughter bought a Rottweiler pup and named him Onyx because of his black coat.

Sheba, my german shepherd/kelpie cross.
