I give up trying to remember individual names. I remind myself of my Grandmom when we were all growing up, and we'd take the mick out of her because everyone was called by several half names as she was trying to remember the one that belonged. lol
I find myself doing it with the cats... very frustrating to have a cat sit there, stare at you like, "What are you trying to say? Spit it out, woman!" lol
Most of the time, I just call them "Girl-eez", of course, everyone comes then. If I am passing by one and am stammering, they turn into "my "bay-bee" or "li-tel gerl"
It seems to work because everyone's tail will instantly flip straight up, rattlesnake shake accompanied by a trill that means something good, I'm sure.
But I indulge in the OTHER favorite ritual shared by CCP's.. that is to make crazy songs about whoever is sitting around, keeping me company while I am cleaning up after breakfast, or doing a DIY, or whatever. THEN the names get really weird LOL
