How do you choose your pet names?

The answers in the popular pet names post got me thinking about this.  We have kids now, so they have named all of our current pets. But pre-kids we just kind of mulled things over until a name popped up that we liked.  Usually trying to fit with their personality.  

 

So where do YOU choose your pet names from?  Books?  TV? Movies? Human names?

Re: How do you choose your pet names?

Both of my dogs, Winston and Fionna Hope, still have the names given to them by the rescue. I felt like they had already been through enough change at the time, so I didn't change their names. Fortunately, I love both of thier names. If given the opportunity to name a new pet, I would probably pull from some of my favorite television and movie characters. I would love to have a dog named Sherlock!

Re: How do you choose your pet names?

Hello i currently have a pug named Vader. We had just lost a pug named Kolby and wanted a name similar to that. However once we met Vader we could tell "the dark side was strong with him" so the name Vader stuck and fits like a glove.
