Booking Through Thursday: Pet Names

This week’s Booking Through Thursday asks:

“Do you have any pet that has a name inspired by your readings?

If not, what would you pick if you DID?

Do any of your friends have book-based names for their pets? (Or their children?)”

I do not have a pet. If I had one it would have to be a cat as I am a cat person. I think I would name it after Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights or Pip from Great Expectations.

I don’t know of anyone giving their children book based names. I have heard that one of my mom’s great uncles fell in love with his wife because her name was the same as one of his favourite literary heroines.

    1. Thanks! I have heard that everyone at that time laughed behind his back and thought he was being foolishly romantic. But they had a successful marriage so it didn’t matter. 🙂
