A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
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?)
Growing up, we had a Cairin Terrier who we named McTavish of Herndon. Our second choice for his registered name was McTavish the Ewok because Return of the Jedi was out at the time and I was too young to understand what a cinematic mis-step the Ewoks really were.
I’ve not had any pets since that time. My wife has two cats but neither have names from literature.
If I were to get a new pet, I might name him or her after a literary character but I’m not sure.
