I have a dream.
That dream is to one day in the not too distant future, own a dog, and name it Cosmo Brown.

This made me wonder if any of you forumites have pets you've named after movie stars/characters? I know Sarah Milican has a cat called Chief Brody, which I enjoy (whatever you think of her comic ability, that's a good cat name), but what about YOU!?

(Sorry if there's recently been a pet-thread, it's been a while).

I've wanted a cat for years. If I ever get one, I'm calling it Ahab.

Our dog looks like the dog from Lady and the Tramp, so we named the dog after that. (not the Tramp.)

If I had another dog of my own though, I plan to call him Ash.

If I were to ever get a cat, I'm calling it Buster, after Mr Keaton.

When I eventually get a dog it will be a pedigree British bulldog (some way off, they're not cheap) and I will probably call it Alfie, or Hitch.

Also, HI MEVE! Long time!

Hey Homer!

Love the image of a Bulldog called Hitch, big fan.

I called my dog Charlie as Tony Greig the cricket commentator used to say "Goodnight Charlie" when a wicket was taken in glorious fashion. So I get to say that when I go to bed. This idea was shamelessly ripped off Rising Damp, where the cat was called Vienna.

A lack of knowledge of cricket, opera and comedy there then

My Cat is called Duster after the skunk in David Niven's No Deposit No return. I was watching it we needed a name for a black and white cat.

I want to get two bengal cats and call them Rouge & Gambit. Mr HQ is vetoing it due to Bengal Cat's being super expensive and high maintenance and he thinks the characters aren't good. The other one is for a ginger tabby and call him Jeeves.

But plenty of knowledge of classic early 80s synthpop, so it balances out.

We have a dog called Buster because he just looks like a dog called Buster...



However, if we ever get a cat I'm calling it Megatron.

I had 2 goldfish called Heskey and Cottee, after, errrr, Emile Heskey and Tony Cottee, but I don't think they ever appeared in any films.
One of my old neighbours had a dog called Scarface, albeit it was a Westie so didn't quite live up to the name.

I have an ex who had a cat called Buster, so there you go. On a similar note I named my dog Charlie, after Chaplin. He's now my parents dog. I like the idea of naming animals after real life people rather than characters, I think. I think poets and artists suit cats - I would like to call a cat Lord Byron for example. For a dog maybe sciencey people are better, Einstein, or obviously Pavlov.

If you had a dog and called it Einstein, Rhubarb, I would call it Copernicus.

I'm going to get two guinea pigs and get to know their personalities. I will then name the naughty one Loki, and the good one Thor.

I had two cats - sisters - called Thelma and Louise.

A few years ago we were up to our necks in hamsters and they were called:

Darcy
Grissom
Milky Joe

I've always called pets I've had real person names. I don't know why, it's not a concious thing, I name them after names I've heard along the day.

I named by budgie Julie after I heard my gran gossiping about a woman with the same name, It really suited her as well. I also named a goldfish I had Robert after my Grans next door neighbour. That also suited him! We had a goldfish called Larry named after Larry David but unfortunately he met his demise a few weeks before Christmas.


When we eventually get a dog, I think we're going to call him Springsteen.

My great aunt had a dog called Bruce. I used to think it was after the Boss but sadly no.

Yeah but it could have been names after the shark in Jaws. Yeah!

In fact, thinking about it, the next 2 pets I have are going to be called John Barrowman and Jenny McShane. Sorted.
