TTT #141 – Best Character Names I would Totally Use for a Pet

In every book we read we come across many different characters with each vastly different names. Some we like, some we don’t. We all have our own preferences. Which is why That Artsy Reader Girl  chose this as this week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt I am sure.

Last year we had a similar prompt where I shared names and characters I would use for a possible other child (though unlikely as that is). In most cases I liked these characters and of course their names enough to possibly use the name for a child. In other cases just the name, haha. This time I am choosing it a bit differently and I am sharing some characters names I think would fit well for pets!

  1. This was a great take on the prompt! If I ever get my backyard chickens I am definitely naming one Quill Kipps! 🐔

    We are thinking about getting two guinea pigs and Zu and Zaphod would be great names, but we are seriously not getting a male! I follow a few G-piggie accounts on Instagram and their balls are so big they drag on the floor behind them. Gross! Ha ha. 😝

  2. I love all of these! We just got a puppy and my daughter named her Winnie. I tell myself in my mind that it’s after Winnie in Scoring the Billionaire just so I can have a dog named after a book character.
