DH and I have 2 cats named Ernest and Waldo...both old-fashioned, unpopular names of famous authors. The names we both like for kids are the same style...old-fashioned names that we don't often hear.

So what about you...do your kids and pets have the same style of names?

DS is Luke.
The dogs are Delta (came with that name), Althalus, Sarek, and Potato.
The cat is Malaney, which is the name of a friend's sister (I thought it was pretty).

The only real connection I see is that I refuse to name my dog something everyone does - Sarek came as Max, Potato came as Bosco, Althalus came as Pluto - blegh. I won't do the Sadie, Shadow, Chocolate, etc.

And I won't name my kid something I see as especially common either - no Matthew, Tyler, Alex, etc.

So I guess.. yeah, kinda the same style.

I'd say definitely not in our case.

Our 5.5 year old chocolate lab is named Hershey, which is a fairly common name for chocolate labs.

Our 3 year old is named Aylie (eye-lee) and our 14 month old is Layla, but not super common names.

DS is Lucas and DD is Laylah.

We have 2 dogs, Nibbles and Bella. We also have 1 cate named Gabriel, but we really only call him Gabe.

I don't really see a similar style at all.

Ours aren't. But... we have a dog named Niles and I really like Myles for a boy but that would have been WAY too close.

I've always loved the name Ren for a boy. And back in college I was dating this fellow, and planning to marry him.. and he refused to allow me to use the name Ren for our child we were planning on having. So when I got a dog.. I named him Ren.

Turns out I didn't marry that fellow from college, and the dog ran away (microchipping, tagging, licensing, putting up fliers, calling newspapers, going from door to door are all useless when trying to get your beloved dog back, btw). So now I REALLY want to name my next son Ren, if I have one. Is that bad?

Well I don't think they are similar. I have a black lab named Strider (Lord of the Rings), a beagle named Ally McBeagle and a cat named Sassi.

My dd is Nichole, but we really didn't choose her name, it was kinda given to us. This baby we are not 100% on names yet but leaning towards Lucas or Avery

I dont know if id say its "bad" but its definitely not something that i would do. I just wouldnt want to think of a dog or have my family and friends think of a dog when they hear my childs name.

My pets are Griffin, Hunter, Dexter, Ellie, and Aidan...Dexter is the only pet that came with a name already and we thought it fit in well with Griffin and Hunter (we didn't have the dogs yet) that we kept it.

I do think my pet names reflect my naming choices (well I did choose them along with the baby names I like) as they are all common trendy but not too popular names which is what I like. (Aidan has grown in popularity since then)
