    Anyone name their pets after franchise characters?

    I have a 2 year old, cream colored chihuahua/jack Russell mix that I am really regretting not naming Skeletor (His name is Samuel L. Jackson). Other than that, for the last decade and a half, all of my pets have been named after characters from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (my other obsession). Between former roommates and myself, we've had:

    Dogs:
    Willow
    Drusilla
    Riley

    Cats:
    Anya
    Xander
    Rupert
    Oz

    I also have a chinchilla named Ando, after the Heroes character, and an albino crayfish named Ice King (Adventure Time, lol). I am a bit of an animal freak.

    Anyone else?

    I had a cat named Bonkers after the Disney character. Also had a Gerbil named Thumper after the bunny in Bambie. Finally not a pet but I named my son Lucas after George and Luke Skywalker.

    We had a dog I named Orko growing up. We have a cat right now named Potter (Hedgewig).

    I'm not allowed to have pets. But since my wife will not let me name any of our children Doctor, I'm hoping she will be cool with Keldor.
    Mattel needs to make an MOTU equivalent to Skylanders. It would create a new generation of MOTU fans.

    Aw, The Fox and the Hound was my first favorite movie. I slept with a Todd plush when I was little.

    I think Orko might win for best dog name ever. I'm jealous.

    He was an oversized shelty, who kind of did bumble around. I think though his magic power was making poop. We have had up to three dogs recently and they don't poop as much as he did singly. Our current malamute might if we weren't a bit better about cleaning up after her. Which technically her name is Nala but I didn't get it from Lion King, well it's a name that came to my mind then someone told me that's probably where the memory fold brought it from.

    I adopted a pair of kittens 2 years ago and named them Waffles and Dot. Waffles was named after Goofy's cat from Goof Troop because they look identical, and Dot was named after Dot Warner from Animaniacs because I knew she'd be big trouble. I wasn't wrong.

    We used to have a fiddler crab named Clawful & another named Clawful II. My brother named his short-haired gray manx cat Panthor and his current dog's name is Rose Tyler. His previous dog was Sirius Black. His son keeps naming his pet lizards Skeletor . We have a peach colored poodle named Princess Peach of York, Peaches for short.

    My tiny dog's name is Dexter (Morgan).

    I always wanted a pet named Archimedes like the owl in The Sword and the Stone.

    I have a cat named Panthor.

    She's not a pet, but my daughter is Adora. Does that count?

    We just got a schnauzer-beagle mix named Striker after Striker Eureka from Pacific Rim. My son suggested Gipsy, but we thought that sounded more like a girl's name, so we'll save it for if we ever get a female dog.

    I have a dog named Rio, after Rio Blast.
    and I will someday name a dog after Hurley from LOST.
    He weeps, for he has but one small tongue, with which to taste an entire world!
