I was tempted to name my cat Bono but she was too much of a princess so I named her Chloe.

I named one of my cats Bono.
Turned out that she was a chick.

But it doesn't really matter I guess, I just have to explain the whole early 90's drag thing to people.
She's such a clumsy wittle thing, just like the real thing.

I named my pigeon Fredrick after the drummer of the soundtrack of our lives, but I normally just call him Freddie so we can expand that to Mr. Mercury as well.

Named a goldfish MacPhisto. He died a couple weeks ago.

Named another one of my cats Paul after McCartney.
Named another one of my cats George after Harrison.
Named ANOTHER cat Ringo after Starr.

I'm weird.

uh...then I'd have to admit I also named pets after songs.

Oh what the hell.

I have two cats named after songs:

Miss Myrrh - after the song Myrrh
Loki - after the song Loki (which is also the Norse god of mischief -- at least in some books). I actually thought of naming him after a musician, but Loki just looked at me like "Don't you dare" so, I didn't. I also tried to call him Goliath (which is also the title of a song), but he just ignored me. He liked Loki right off, so that stuck.

Isidore -- one cat named after a band (well, more accurately a musical collaboration. One guy does the music, the other does the lyrics and vocals.) The name Isidore (which also means gift of the goddess Isis, and he does think he's quite the gift, if you know what I mean.) And he is adorable.

Rickenbacker Straticaticus -- is a cat named after guitars. Now I realise that I am both mixing my brands (Fender makes Strats) and also bastardising the name Stratocaster, but it worked for this particular cat. He needed a pompous name.
