I don't know if I agree with the author's philosophy about the reasons people choose these names for pets, but it is interesting to see what the current naming trends are.

When I was a kid (won't tell you when!) I remember that every other dog or cat was named Misty.  When I first heard of little girls being named that, I was horrified, because I had always thought of it as a pet name!

Interesting! I was surprised to see Leo on the dog list but not on the cat list. I did once know a big male tabby cat named Leo.

Some of these pet names are also popular baby names.

I really like the name Bently for a big dog.
