Default How did your furbabies get their names?

I thought this would be fun, as some are very interesting! "Nike" was named by Greg's old roomate. He became "Nutzie" after a few fun cat nip adventures, and because he was unaltered. We also call him "Fatboy" when he's at his "winter weight"! After he became ours, and I got him neutered, we went back to Nike. "Serene" was named by the lady who rescued her from the kill shelter in ND. because she was so calm and quiet (until she came out of her shell of course! Chaos would be more appropriate these days!) but she also goes by Beaner, Bean and Queen Bean! "Jersey" was a tough one...Greg wasn't really ready to get another dog, but I went through a phase where I thought I wanted a baby (thankfully that passed quickly once I had Jersey to nurture!) so he agreed. BUUUUTTTT.....He wanted to pick the name !! His first choice after we met her was Muddle , so, home she came and after about 10 min, I knew the name did not suit her! He agreed, and later when he was watching the news, they said something about New Jersey, and he yelled to me "What about Jersey?". I agreed instantly, as Coyote Ugly is one of fave movies, and Jersey is the main characters nickname. Mostly, I call her my Bugaboo, or Buggybear, or just Bug! So, if I ever refer to Bean or Bug, that's my girls! (I don't use Nike's old nickname as I feel it would be mean now that he's neutered!)
