Booking Through Thursday

It's my Friday! Super stoked about this four day weekend coming up, and it's usually unheard of, but my honey managed the time off too. Mini vacation for us :) 

(Don't forget to check out the giveaway to the right. Just click the cover and it'll swing you over to the entry form. :-D)

This week's question(s) ask:

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?)

The answer here would be no. My girls ~ a 6 lb Pomeranian and an abnormally large Siberian Husky ~ are named Dakota and Anouk respectively. I picked names from the north because I unwillingly lived in the south. However, my parents had a puppy I named Lyra ~ like the little girl in the Golden Compass. I just loved the name. I also have a cat named Tobias, like in Divergent, but that's merely a coincidence.

If I got another puppy today ~ uh oh, now the thought's in my head ~ the names that pop into my head are Katsa or Po, from Graceling. Tough, strong, resilient, but kind and gentle at the same time. :)

None of my friends have book-based names for their pets or children.

What about y'all?

Happy Reading Everyone :)

  1. Ooh, I like your dogs names. Here's mine: Small Blonde Hippy

  2. Great names for your dogs. I like Lyra too.
    Our cat has a literary name.

  3. I like all your possible names, I haven't read the graceling though yet, need to get on it. Here's my BTT

  4. Hey it's my Friday too! Yay for long weekends ~ enjoy!!

    My cat is named Mushu and my chihuahua is Cocoa but my daughter and I were just discussing last week that we should get a new cat and name it Poe after Edgar Allen Poe. I don't think Mushu would like that idea very much though. :)

  5. Ooh, I love love Po! Great names!

    Here's my BTT: http://blueeggbooks.blogspot.com/2012/05/booking-through-thursday_24.html

  6. Wait, wait, how about Po's real name: Prince Greening Grandemalion? Well, it could be it's official name but like the character in the book, will go by Po.

    Thanks for stopping by. ^_^
