My cats are Posh and Beckham, not that I'm a huge fan of either, but the names do fit my cats' personalities. I also named my friend's cat Maximus, after Russel Crowe's character in Gladiator (she wouldn't go for Russell).

When I was little, my sister and I named two kittens Mariah and Carrie. This is not something I like to admit to, though granted, she was the Mariah Carey fan, I just went along with it.

My brother had a hamster named Jamiroquai.

We used to have a cat whose full name was: The Girl Cat AKA Drew Barrymore. Basically, we didn't come up with a name, and we called her "The Girl Cat" (to differentiate her from her almost identical brother, who we did name) for so long that it stuck. And then we decided she looked like Drew Barrymore (she really did, and no, I'm not going to explain that). But mostly, her name was just "Girl".

I named my goldfish after Law and Order SVU characters. Does that count for anything?

I would never name my kids after band members though (unless I loved the name or it had some other family importance or something). I do think that's a bit creepy/obsessive.

No musical pet names, but I did name my goldfish Wayne and Janet after the famous hockey couple.

They were going strong for years, but then we moved across the province. When we were leaving, we put them in a big fish bowl in the car -- but I think the constant motion did something to them. Wayne passed away early into the trip, followed quickly by Janet.

They couldn't live without each other.

My husband found a baby bunny. I named it Edge. He was the cutest little bunny. Then we let him go.

I don't want kids but if I did I would name a boy Xavier and a girl Aurora (after the X-men).

I inherited two kitties named Simon and Garkfunkel from a good friend when I was a teenager. I think they were actually both girls.
