We know someone who is a huge fan of the Boston Red Sox and named their pet Fenway after the team’s famous stadium.
Geography is another source of ideas. For example, you could select the name of a city, state, or country you like to travel to or one you’ve always wanted to visit. Or tie it to where you grew up or live now.
One woman we knew studied abroad in Sydney, Australia, and picked the name Sydney for her pet to recognize that special time in her life.
Another option is to turn to famous people you admire, like actors, athletes, singers, leaders, and other notable figures.
You can use their name or nickname for your feline friend.
Your favorite forms of entertainment can also be mined for monikers. For example, what TV shows do you watch? Do you have a favorite movie? Or a book you read over and over again?
In this case, the character names can be repurposed for your dog.
The Lion King is an extremely popular source for cat names. (Nala and Simba continually rank at the top of the chart for popular cat names.)
