My family is about to welcome a sweet little female Yorkie puppy into our family. We are terrible at coming up with pet names. Can you help us brainstorm? [more inside]
I need great, imaginative, appealing names for black dogs! A friend operates a rescue organization for dogs and cats, and mentioned how hard it is to find homes for black dogs (see Black Dog Syndrome)... and since I was already helping her come up with names, I thought I'd come up with a special list of Black Dog names that are perhaps evocative of personality types, and that might inspire interest so that potential adopters will maybe find their curiosity/sense of whimsy piqued and stop to at least read a description on the website, instead of just passing by any photo of a black dog.

I have a white cat named Casper. I never call him that, however. Depending on what mood I'm in, I'll call him Capso, Tiny, Pookoo, or some combination, like Tiny Capso-Pookoo. Similarly, my friend in high school had a Siamese cat named Tiffany that people would call Tiffers, Reefer, or Reefer Eebeep. Are pet nicknames like this widespread? What's your pet's real name and what are the weird stream-of-consciousness nicknames you've come up for it?
