  • Remember that depending on the personality of the pet or animal and also depending on their physical appearance we can choose a name (If it’s white, black, if it’s like a goat we can put Loki, Crazy, Crazy …)
  • We can give them names of people too, and it is very funny: Paco, Pepe, Luis, Rafa, Pepa, Mari, Mila, Ramón, Susi …
  • Many times we choose a name and then we end up calling our pet in a totally different way.
  • My advice is… Do not hurry with the name! Surely you get one very fun, original or beautiful in a very short time. If you want more name ideas, Do not hesitate to visit the links below, we have many more names!
