How did you come up with the name of your pet? This is a question we don’t usually get an answer to, mostly because no one thinks to ask it.
One Twitterer, @BiggenSnow, did just that by asking followers to post pics of their pets and what they’re named after. Of course, he got many responses, and cute photos to boot!
Check out a few adorable fur friends and their name origins below.
