    Default Spin off - names used for pets too

    The thread on horrible names got me thinking about names I associate more with pets (I'm a veterinarian so probably think about this more than most)

    For example to me "Cooper" is a beagle, "Jessica" is a border collie and "Sasha" is every second rottweiler or cavalier

    An old friend thought I was weird for naming my cat Jasmine because it was her daughter's middle name. Anyone who has seen my cat will know how right the name is for her, although it really should be Her Highness Princess Jasmine according to her.

    I don't think the OP is saying these are horrible pet names. She is saying these are names used for babies but also commonly used for pets.

    I had a cat called Tess and briefly considered Tessa for DD but in the end decided she might feel like she had been named after a cat so didn't leave it on the list.

    Mum and dad's dog is James (Jimmy).

    My rabbit is Betsy.

    We've had Eric, Steve, Thomas and Emily as pets in the past. In fact, we never name pets anything other than human names!
