Booking Through Thursday: Pet Names

This week's Booking Through Thursday asks...

Do you have any pet that has a name inspired by your readings? If not, what would you pick if you DID? Do any of your friends have book-based names for their pets (or children)?

I don't think I have ever named a pet based on a book, but I've also never named any of my pets on my own (someone else has always had a say). I like to base my pet names on their personality, so choosing a name beforehand is hard. But if I got another male cat I would possibly name him Gatsby. My sister's name is Ramona and I always think about Ramona Quimby, but she is not named after that character. Other than that I don't think I know of any animals or people named after book characters.

What about you- any pets or people named after favorite book characters? Leave me a comment and let me know!


  1. Gatsby would be an awesome name for a pet :)

  2. I could see Gatsby as a name for a pet. :) Catchy.

  3. Gatsby sounds like a good name for a pet. Fairly short and easy too.
    We have a cat, and he does have a literary name.

  4. Gatsby is a great name for a cat! I love it!

  5. Gatsby sounds like a great name for a cat, especially male one. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Ramona is a cute name.


I love hearing from you! I appreciate all comments and will try to reply as soon as possible.
