My cats... 'Linda' was a womans name, and also the spanish word for 'beautiful'---perfect for a pure white long-haired cat with one gold eye and one blue eye. She grew up to be an incredible huntress and honed her skills to a very fine edge by kicking the butts of other cats and a pair of really obnoxious minidachshunds that invaded the yard from time to time...hence the family nickname 'La Muerta Blanca' (the white death). 'Pistol' arrived as a hungry lost ball of 12 week old fluff, weighing a bit less than a pound--and when the 90+ pound german shepherd eased over for a friendly introductory sniff, the itty bitty kitty fluffed, hissed and pounced AT the dog! My daughter joked that the kitten was a real pistol, and the dog was going to be pistol-whipped. Poultry... What do you name a duck with a bad limp---why, what else could you name a lame duck--'Senator'! (RIP) How about a banty rooster with colors ranging from burgundy to flame yellow, orange and brick red with slate grey accents, who I nearly killed through heat stroke...'Hot Stuff'! The rust-orange NHR rooster was Rusty, the 10 year old NHR hen is Big Red. There are other critters, much less imaginatively named.
