I think [name_f]Marianne[/name_f] and [name_f]Wanda[/name_f] would be cute for a pair of pets (after a nutty old country song, “Goodbye Earl,” where both the names are used).

I’ve also known pets with number names. Sixer and [name_m]Five[/name_m] were two of my grandparents’ St. Bernards when I was small. Now, they have colorful cats! Their names are [name_f]Lilac[/name_f] and [name_u]Indigo[/name_u], (both girls) named by myself and my sister. :paw_prints:
