After reading the long, long comment thread about everyone’s pets, I realized that we have some really talented pet-namers hereabouts. So I thought of a way to put them to work for us. *grin*
Here’s the deal: If you have a nameless pet or you are thinking of taming a new pet and you want help picking a name, drop me an e-mail. Include a picture of your character (with the pet if you’ve already tamed it). Also include — and this is important — a sentence or two on:
- why you choose this partcular pet,
- what kind of name you are looking for: silly, romantic, mythological, etc.,
- and a bit about your character’s personality. (It’s okay if you’re not a role-player, but we need to know a little about how you play.)
I’ll pick a submission (assuming I get more than one!) and post the pic and description text here. Then all the great pet-namers in the audience can comment and suggest a great name for your pet! Sounds like fun, right? If it works out okay, maybe we’ll make this a regular feature.
(And by the way: Happy Thanksgiving for those that celebrate the holiday!)
