Do you know the meaning of your pets name?

Hi everyone, so glad you stopped by today.
I have decided to do a bit of a fun Thoughtless Thursday post.
The other day, I started thinking of different meanings of names. Human names, pet names, any names. I thought it would be fun to see why you chose the names you did for your pets (if you chose them) and what their names mean.

pet name meanings

I'll start with mine.

Koda - When we adopted him, his name was Miles. I didn't think it suited him at all, so I began researching names and their meanings. I have always liked the name Dakoda, but wanted to shorten it to Koda. The name itself is a Native American term for "friend" or "companion."

Mika - Mika had her name already when we adopted her. I love her name, so did not want to change it. The meaning of Mika is "Gift from God."

Lexus - Lex was a pup when we adopted her, after her short couple of months living with a backyard breeder. I decided to name her Lexus, which means "defender of the people."

Your Turn!
What made you choose your pets name? Do you know the meaning?

  1. There really is no rhyme or reason as to why we have our names...mama says I just "looked" like Chloe and LadyBug already had her name when we adopted her!!

    1. And you know what? There is absolutely nothing wrong with that either! Names are fantastic all on their own without having any certain meaning to them!

  2. Yep I absolutely know the meaning of Dakota's name! It is the same as your "Koda".....when we got Dakota I looked up the name because I had always loved it and it means "trusted friend" in American Indian, (or companion, friend as you said, but when I looked it up at that time, it said "Trusted friend")

    The funny thing is you shortened yours to "Koda".....and I often call my Dakota "Koda" or "Dakota Boda"....or just "Boda" why I add a "B" who knows? lol xoxo

  4. Your Huskies' names have lovely meanings.
    I was almost named Clover, but they decided it didn't sound right so it became Clowie. It's spelt like that to be like David Bowie! My bipeds are weird.

  6. Bentley's name means a clearing covered with grass. haha! We named him Bentley when he belonged to our friend although they named him something else. When we got him, he was renamed. He looks like a Bentley. ☺

  7. I love how you picked your dogs' names, and all the meanings of them!
    My hubby's father had a beagle named Cricket once, so he wanted to name our beagle that. When we got Sheba and her brother together, I wanted to name him after a dog we had known, Moses, so wanted a biblical name for her as well. I think technically in the bible it was the "Queen of Sheba". Luke I just thought of....I might have been thinking biblical again (I'm not really religious...LOL, but I did go to Christian college!). I looked up Luke and it means "light" - so I like that, since he's the "light of our lives"!

  9. Well according to nameberry the meaning of Sampson is sun, which I think is fitting, because he brings such light and warmth into our lives. We chose it because we wanted two dogs and were trying to make it cute. I however did not know I was spelling it different than the biblical spelling. :-) On the flip, apparently Delilah can mean night. LOL who knew such a random thought could really peg the personalities of the dogs we named?

  14. We didn't name either of our current dogs. Hailey means fields of hay; Zaphod is a fictional character.

  15. When Annabelle was adopted to me her name was FRITZY. Why I cannot imagine. But she was too dainty and girly, she had to have a pretty name. I chose in the "A" family because of Abby. As it turns out, unbeknowst to me, but coming from the Rescue group that saved her, her kitten was named Bluebelle, so really it's the perfect name!

  16. what great meanings of your dogs names. Gambler I named after kenny rogers gambler, hoping he was going to be a winner. Glory was after lady gaga edge of glory, that song came on and I said Glory will be her name. I also love anything patriotic so I'm glad I went with it. Nellie was to go along with Norman, not really sure how I came up with it. They all don't really mean anything or I have never looked them up is more like it.

  17. The way we choose our dogs' names in kind of involved lol. Short version...Thunder is named for a hunting spot (SRR's North Point Thunder Bay). Storm is named because the night we brought her home it was storming, (Irish's Great Lakes Nor'easter). Freighter because his registered name is SRR's Northern Gales Of November. His reg name came about because he was born in November so we kept with the weather theme and added the word north and named him after a line in the song the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
