    Wow, this was an awesome video! Congratulations on having it featured, Jared Kinz!! :D Let’s see, to be honest, I usually just name my Webkinz human names…that I randomly come up with…but, I do think I have some pets that fit all these categories, so I’ll just list a few. :) (1) Sometimes I’ll name a Webkinz after a famous person; I usually keep their first name the same, but change their last name to fit the pet. For example: Benedict Cumberscratch, the Signature jaguar, after Benedict Cumberbatch. Chris Chewellyn, the west highland terrier, after Chris Llewellyn. And Bo Rhinohart, the rhino, after Bo Rinehart.

      (I thought I’d split these comments up, because they’re pretty long). (2) I have some pets whose names have to do with the pet name, but I usually don’t name them things like that anymore. Mystic, the mystic pony, Pinto, the pinto horse, and Blue, the blue hippo are a few examples. (3) I don’t have too many silly or unique names that I can think of at the moment, but one of my most unique ones is my cotton candy bunny, named ‘Retsae’, which is the word ‘Easter’ spelt backwards. ;)

      • ilovemoonie says:

        (4) I name pets after characters from things ALL THE TIME! Okay, so a lot. And it’s not just Webkinz, either, but all my stuffed animals. I’m just going to list some that I can think of that are named after characters: Nemo, Marlin, Soren, Nala, Lusa, Kallik, Olaf, Loki, Steve Dogers, (I changed the last name; he’s named after Steve Rogers), Bucky, Rye, and there is more, but I honestly can’t remember them at the moment. Sorry, other Webkinz who’s names I can’t remember. :P Anyway, I think you get the point.

        • ilovemoonie says:

          (5) Lastly, I do ask for name suggestions quite a bit. And sometimes, if I have some names I’m deciding between, I’ll get my family’s opinion on them to see which one I should use. One pet who’s name I got from a suggestion is Ignatius the caramel lion, which was suggested by the user Fracktail. :) Anyway, I guess that’s all, and sorry for these long comments! Thanks for the naming tips, Jared Kinz! ;)

      That is totally the same with me! I just do random human names.

    • MyLittlePony2010EG13 says:

      Aww! Those are some cute names!

    I recently adopted a Webkinz Lion. I named him Kion after Simba & Nala’s son from the movie The Lion Guard. Kion is the Leader of the lion guard. His friend’s Bunga a honey badger, Ono a bird. Beshte a hippo, and Fuli a cheetah are part of his team,

    Love the video. I have a Webkinz Garnet Rover named Garnetta. Partly named after the January birthstone . I have the Stormy Dragon. I also called mine Stormy. I used part of the Webkinz pet name. I have a ladybug named Dottie for the unique names since she has spots. I also name Webkinz pets after holidays. My poofy  poodle is named Easter because of her fur colors plus I just love that holiday anyway. I named several kinz after friends.  I named kinz after my favorite colors. I have a pinktastic peacock named Rosie because I love the color pink. I named a pet after a kind of flower. My pink Googles is named Peony because my friend has peonies in her garden. I have a  lot of ways of choosing pet names. Sometimes I get suggestions from my mom. For example I was having trouble naming my Tiedye frog. So I asked my mom for help. I called my frog Tad because baby frogs are tadpoles. I also name pets after seasons and places. My tiger lily pup is named Dakota Summer. The first part of her name comes from the state of North Dakota. The second part of her name comes from my favorite season summer. I could go on and on but these are just some examples/tips for naming Webkinz pets that I’ve done.

    Nowadays I normally name my webkinz after country singers and characters in books, films and games. When I was younger, I tended to name my webkinz after the most bizarre things. For example, I named my Frisian “Midstar Cola” because I spilt cola on him. I don’t even know XD

    Story behind 3 of my pets’ names: Coco – Coco is my Pom Pom Kitty, actually based off of the cute My Little Pony, Coco Pommel. (Coco POMmel, like Pom Pom!) I was planning to get a Pom Pom Kitty for Christmas and name it Coco, and my wish came true =D Twiglet – Twiglet is my Reindeer; She was meant to be named Twilight like Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony (I used to love that show! [And I still kinda do, I just don't have much time to watch it]), and I was small at the time. Hence, the name Twiglet! Lelea – Lelea is my Decade Dragon; This one has no story, just a name that popped into my head. I wasn’t planning ahead (I like to plan names and pets ahead), and I was in a rush that morning, so Lelea is just the random name I came up with.

    • MyLittlePony2010EG13 says:

      Hey boogirl! Yeah, I used to love MLP, and I still kind of do now. I like the old generations a little better than the new ones. TWIGLET IS A CUTE NAME! Haha, I named my Decade Dragon, Decade. I was in a hurry too! LOL, now I’m wishing her name was Rainbow Silver10. LOL

      • Prettypikachu says:

        Wow, such long hahas, hahah! (XD) No, those are just super horrible, random names I came up with (no offense to people who did name their pets Afro Guy or Poofy Girl, heheh). Twilightsparkle, watersplash, Meow (that one I like!), barbie… Ah, we could seriously go on forever with this stuff! Wow, uyou ahev a lot of pets! A Pink Pony named – Yoshi? My favorite characters have to be Pokemons, Yoshi, Peach and Daisy, and the inklings from Splatoon. “I think that it’s a her” Hahah! Tthisssss one – white – Tthissssss one – black, XD! That’s very funny, heehee =D Uh, yeah, actually! I should, I really want to, but my computer crashes or doesn’t load whenever I try to post something there. Ah, I just get the nuts and bolts maintenance message… I hope I’m not holding up the roleplay (you guys can just take me out, I’m super sorry =( ) – Prettypikachu

        I meant ‘you have a lot of pets’, not uyou ahev a lot of pets’, heheh XD

    AWESOME VIDEO!!!!!! Congratulations, JaredKinz!!! I love naming my Webkinz pets! Once I got a pet from eBay, and when I got her and adopted her virtually, I HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO NAME HER!!! But I came up with something a few minuets later. My names for my Webkinz pets USUALLY come from food, characters, and what pet they are. I got the Webkinz Hedgehog 4 or 5 years ago, and I named him “Porky”. I had no idea he was a hedgehog. Few years later, I look at his Ganz tag, and WHOOPS! That was a total accident. I would’ve named it Sonic or Stone Hedge if I knew. But I love my porcupine anyways! And I have to Mazin’ Hamsters. I named my Sprinkles hamster, “Cotton Candy”. And I named my Flora Hamster, “Cupcake”. Er, few months later I noticed that I put the wrong named on the wrong hamster. >.< At least I didn't get the Chili Hamster and name it Cotton Candy. That would be worse. If anyone needs names suggestions, just let me know! P.S. If you need your refrigerator emptied: friend 09xStarlightx09 on Webkinz. I LOVE food and I LOVE to eat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. RosyFox says:

    Another good suggestion is Nature-Inspired names. For example, I named my Global Panda “River”, and my Signature Deer “Willow”.

  9. RosyFox says:

    I just recently adopted a Signature Arctic Hare and named her Luna, after Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. :D

    Nice tips! I’ve always had a hard time naming webkinz. Most of my pets are named after foods lol. I have a ground hog webkinz named milkshake not really sure what i was going for there haha! (my excuse is being little) But sometimes I wish we could go back and change the names. I got my first webkinz for my 10th bday, from my friends 2 persians, a yorkie, and a terrier. I put the codes on for the terrier and yorkie but then lost the password. Anyways my main account I adopted my persian, (my favorite webkinz) and was a terrible speller (still am) and named her angle (like in math) instead of angel. My mom pointed it out to me later and teased me haha! Alot of mine are named after characters I have a llama named Tina from napolenon dynamite, decade dragon named Dipper from gravity falls, chameleon named pascal from tangled, zombie puppy named stitch, etc. But my himalayan and siamese are named storm and sky after my real live cats who are the same breed. Alot of them time I take suggestions. It just depends on the pet.

    • RosyFox says:

      Tina is such a cute name for the Llama, MidnightFireflies17! I love Napoleon Dynamite. :)

    • dinosaurtracker13 says:

      Stitch is a great name for a zombie puppy! I had such a hard time naming my zombie puppy, but I eventually settled on Goosebumps. Anyway, I love the Lilo and Stitch movies — I have a Lilo doll beside my desk, and a homemade plush Pleakley, too.

      • MidnightFireflies17 says:

        Thank you dinosaurtracker13! Someone here on wkn suggested it but I can’t remember who. It fit so well because I love the movies too and the puppy has stitches on it. For some reason I hasd such a hard time naming it. Goosebumps is such an awesome name! :) Reminds me of the books I read when I was younger. Thats cool! The homemade pleakley sounds adorable! Did you make it yourself? My sister made me a scrump plush and I have a stitch plush in my room. My sisters have the angel plush, the lilo dolls, a whole bunch of lilo and stitch things lol.

        • dinosaurtracker13 says:

          Cool, I bet that Scrump is awesome! And I have an Angel, too. Anyway, yes, I did make a Pleakley for myself! Pleakley is one of my favorite Lilo and Stitch characters, I just get a kick out of him being silly. :D

          • MidnightFireflies17 says:

            That’s awesome! Me too he is hilarious! I love them all! :)

          • greenmagic77 says:

            XD Apparently I named some of my pets after their webkinz name. Like the sapphire Pegasus I name sapphire and my opal owl I named opal. Lol! That did not take to much thinking at all to pick those names! I named her opal because of my birthstone but I never knew it was the name of the webkinz. Lol! Tangled, big hero 6, lilo and stitch,walle, guardians of the galaxy, and up are my favorite Disney movies. They don’t get to much recognition though unlike frozen. Not judging frozen though. I love that movie to. I want to get a raccoon and name it rocket and the tree dragon and name it Groot!
