I don’t particularly like my cat’s name, but the theme I was going for was ‘Herbs’ so I choose Jasmine out of the bunch.

Even if I did like her name, I still don’t think I’d call her Jasmine :sweat_smile: She has an array of nicknames, but I’ve recently took to calling her Minna (min-uh).

[name_f]My[/name_f] dogs have like five nicknames each! One of them has the one syllable name, [name_u]Skye[/name_u], so we just naturally fell into falling her Skysie, because you can’t really do the singsong voice with one syllable. Unless you do Sky-eye?
