I have many interests and an inability to make up my mind about which one to focus on. That's how I came up with my name: ControlledChaos1.
I'll Choose Fun, Frivolous and Cute Pet Names Over Serious Ones Any Day
Choosing to bring home a cute, new pet is a big deal. Not only will you have to look after it, but it will eventually look out for you as well. If you love and nurture your pet, it will quickly become a part of the family (some say pets are just as important as human family members).
Picking a name for your pet should be a joyous occasion that all of your family can take part in. While everyone will have suggestions of their own, looking up pet name suggestions online is always a popular option. Unfortunately, you sometimes have to wade through some lousy suggestions to find good names. My hope is that this article gives you a lot of solid choices, rather than ridiculous ones.
This particular list will focus on cute, fun, and lighthearted names for your pet. So, if you want a name that will put a smile on people's faces when they ask, "What's its name?" then this list should give you an advantage. Thanks for paying a visit, and enjoy.

Personal Story About a Bird
When I was young, my brother and I found a nest that had been knocked down by a storm. We took the two little baby birds we found near the nest to our Uncle and Paw where they helped us fix a box for them to stay safe. Within a couple of hours, the mother came looking for the babies and actually taught them how to fly while we watched.
We were fairly close to the whole situation, and I often wonder whether the mama bird wasn't afraid because she had seen that we had tried to take care of her babies and only wanted to keep them safe or she was worried worried enough about her babies that she just wanted to get them out of there regardless of any risk we may or may not present. Now that we're older, me and my brother have talked about the experience often and have even told our kids of the experience.

When the cure for insecurity and meaningful conversation is to slap a cell phone against your ear, hide within you iPod, or tap out a cryptic instant message, is it any wonder that we find comfort and solace in hairy, furry and scaly companions?

Tips On Naming Your New Pet
- Taking into account what kind of animal your new pet is may seem like something that people would automatically take into account, but that is not always the case. Write down on a piece of paper the characteristics of that animal and use that as a base for picking it's name.
- Color can always be taken into consideration, but if you want to be different try to be clever when using the color of your pet in it's naming. For example, say you have a black lab; instead of naming it "Shadow", try naming is something like "Darko Choco".
- The personality of your new pet should always play a part in the name-giving ritual. For example, a very active and playful pet could be named "Romp", unless you wanted to be sarcastic and go in the opposite direction.
- Take your time when coming up with a name. The one thing you don't want is to change your pets' new name after you've been calling it by that name a few days. This will only confuse them, especially if you do it more than once.
Animals are sentient, intelligent, perceptive, funny and entertaining. We owe them a duty of care as we do to children.

Exotic Pets Can Be Cool... But You'll Get Some Looks
Exotic pets can be very cute, especially when young, but you must do your research before getting such a pet. The above video was quite an eye opener to me when I was thinking about getting my girlfriend a pet mini pig. As long as the proper book work has been done for your potential pet, feel free to jump into the wonderful world of exotic pets.
I have a few friends that have some really unusual pets, but for whatever reason, don't want to show them off in public. I can understand if their pet poses a danger or threat to others (human or animal), but if that isn't the case, then why not expose them to the public at large? Most people (and other pets) would probably get a kick out of seeing an exotic or unusual companion.

I know that both names have negative connotations, but they also have many positive ones as well. Hiroshima is quite a beautiful city today and a beacon for world peace, while Sugar Daddy is a wonderful candy that I enjoyed (a lot) during my younger years. I think both would make wonderful pet names.
Yuka on June 02, 2020:
Who in his right mind would suggest to name their Pet "Hiroshima" or "sugar Daddy" what the hell.
Don (author) from Tennessee on May 27, 2020:

How about using actual french words as a name for your dog? You could use "petit", which means small or
"merci", which means thank you.
Kitty J on January 19, 2020:

Cute Irish Dog Names
When you want your pup’s name to be both inspired by the Emerald Isle and super adorable, choose one of these cute Irish dog names.
Pronounced ASH-ling, this name means “vision” or “dream” in Gaelic—perfect for the Irish pup of your dreams.
Angus or Aengus
According to Celtic legend, the name “Angus” means “one strength” in Gaelic and belonged to the god of love. And what’s the thing that dogs are best at (besides sniffing out treats)? That’s right: love.
In Gaelic, this name means “rock.” It’d be perfect for a Bulldog, since they’re basically boulders on legs.
This name, a shortened form of Nicholas, means “pup” in Gaelic. How on the nose is that?
The name Conan (as in late-night host Conan O’Brien, who’s undeniably Irish) comes from the Gaelic word “con” which means “hound” or “wolf.” And the suffix “an” means “little warrior.” What’s cuter than a little hound who thinks he’s a warrior?
This Irish name sounds adorably quirky, but it has a serious meaning: “Liberty.”
A common last name and increasingly popular first name, Donovan means “dark” in Gaelic. If you want your lil’ squish to have a goth vibe, this name is perfect!
Dublin is the capital of Ireland, and also a great unisex name for your new doggo.
Finn or Fionn
Finn is the Anglicized version of Fionn. Both mean “fair-headed” or “white,” making this a precious choice for a dog whose hair is on the lighter side.
The name translates to “son of Gerald” in Gaelic. But more importantly, it sounds like the name of a classy dog who has a vast collection of argyle sweaters.
Also the name of the hero in the Disney movie “Tangled,” this name means red, bright red or fiery red. A cute reference to your new dog’s ginger fur, perhaps?
Liam means "resolute protection" in traditional Gaelic. There’s no better name for a guard dog.
This name means “affection” and is a great pick for a snuggly girl dog.
Murphy is a common last name in the U.S. and in Ireland, and giving it to a dog adds a whole new level of cuteness. Plus, the name means "sea warrior" in Gaelic―perfect for a dog who loves to swim.
Pronounced NOO-lah, this is the diminutive of the name Fionnuala, which means “fair shouldered.” Regardless of how attractive your dog’s shoulders are (we’re sure they’re stunning), we also love this name for its charming nickname, “Nu.”
This was an Irish clan surname, and doubles as a super cute first name for a dog.
This adorable-sounding name refers to an Irish spirit, seen in the form of a dog or horse.
Pronounced ROW-sheen, this name means "little rose”―a sweet name for a small-breed cutie.
This name is a common Irish last name in the U.S., but it’s also become a popular first name for pets and people alike. Just think: Your pup’s nickname could be “Sully,” like the kind-hearted fuzzy monster in “Monsters, Inc.”
