:lol: That's funny! I never thought of it that way before. I guess my line of thinking on the people name is because they're just like little kids to me. Anyway, what are my chances of running into a 'Herbie' some day? :lol: Although, 'George' could be a real possibility!
We picked the name 'Herbie' from the movie "Herbie the Love Bug." Not that he's like a car or anything, it's because he's sooo loveable. He thrives on attention and a daily dose of cuddles and love from his human counterparts!
'George' comes from the cartoon and book character "Curious George." We brought him home from the pet store and instead of being afraid and cowering in a corner he was all over the place, checking everything out.
Actually, we think they might be brothers. We got George from the pet store one day and my husband was insistent that we have just 1 cat. After my begging and pleading that George needing a playmate we went back to the pet store and got Herbie. Herbie was at the pet store the day we got George and after watching them grow and how they have VERY similar features we are pretty sure they are from the same batch of kittens.
"The boys" thank you very much for the compliments! Nearly every time we take them to the vet for a weight check or nail clipping we get told how handsome they are.
Hello! It's been so long since I named an animal that I don't really remember how I did it. I just remember liking the name Sebastian (of course, at the time I spelled it "Sabastion"). My fiance will be naming the next cat. He picks good names. He's already decided on "Shinji Ticklepaws." I don't know what we'll do if the next cat is female.
I now have two cats with people name, Gracie and Casey, named by their former owner, and I have had cats named Paul, Marilyn, and Barnabas, but I have yet to have heard of a person named Laughing Boy! (GGGGG.)
