Hating your pet's name

Recommended Posts

My pet names are hideous...

I'm thinking of trading some of them to get better pet names.

I go through periods of hating the name 'Dariganto'.
But she was my first real pet on this account (one that I picked out to have on this account, and didn't transfer over) and I've spent a small fortune on painting, morphing and training.

So no way am I trading!

I think a lot of people aren't that happy with their pet names (or even usernames lol), so it doesn't bother me that much.

 

...But actually, on my old account, one of my pets had 18 numbers at the end of her name because I thought I was being funny. I still regret that to this day xD

I've adopted all of my neopets besides my first, novymbyr.
I make sure that every neopet I adopt does not have numbers. If you guys didn't know, there's this really neat site that shows each species, color, and age which are currently up for adoption.

I wish they would let us change names. Ii had really bad taste in names as a 12 year old, however adult me loathe it but still loves the pet because it is my original.

I hate my username, and my pet names. But I was 11 when I made the account and thought they were awesome names then. Oh well. I just deal with it and think how silly I was when I was younger.

I really wish that I could change my username. Pets, you can always just abandon them for better named pets which is what I did, but your username stays a flaw that can never be fixed. I do feel a tad bad getting rid of my first pet, especially after he was turned into a baby, but with the name storm_clowd I simply couldn't justify keeping him

I like my pets' names, except the numbers.  My Uni is named Mint5012 and my Zafara is Morgan5000.  I wouldn't be that bad, except the numbers are completely random and mean nothing to me. :axehead:

I think I hate my username more.  It's hidalgo500h.  I picked it because I liked the horse in the movie Hidalgo, but then there's the 500.  AND THEN there's an h.  I swear.  9-year-old me was really dumb.

Oh yes, totally. I still have my two first pets on my account, one of which is just the first name of a guy on a boy band that was popular back then (which I didn't even like, I'm not sure what my thought process was on that one, but hey, I can't really be that harsh with 10-year-old me) and a bunch of random numbers. Another one of my pets has several underscores because I got her from the pound. I wanted a kiko back then, so I could paint it purple and match a key quest token I bought. Guess a morphing potion didn't cross my mind or I didn't wanted to spend that much. I'm not quite sure, honestly. Either way, I have grown too attached to let them go :biggrin:

My pets' names on my original account (which is a side now) do kinda drive me nuts haha. The ones I adopted have weird capitalization and several numbers, and the ones I created are just... embarrassing, lol. Like my Tuskaninny's name is literally "Fuzza Wuzza" (with some extra stuff). It sounded great when I was nine, apparently. xD

I still love them to death, but it makes me really wish I could tweak their names. Especially with one of them whose name has a long string of numbers at the end -- it's been like 15 years and that name *without the numbers* isn't even taken!!

I haven't that trouble, since I pick the name thinking of the character, even when I adopted them, so the name goes everything :D

For the first time in ten years, I do have a pet name that I'd like to change. I nearly pounded him yesterday but had forgotten that done some decently valuable work on him. I'd zapped him quite a few times to get his color and he has a strong petpet I'd been using in the petpet battles. 

Because of the zapper he's currently the wrong gender but I'm working on that. I'm training him to battle the lab ray scientist. 

Wow. Forgot I'd posted this and just last night, I caved and pounded the pet and recreated it with the name I preferred. 

It wasn't so much the color that mattered but the clothing that came with the color which I got to keep and I can get the Petpet to level 3 again.

This is definitely me. I adopted bobershnits from the pound and zapped a bunch, thought I'd probably release him back to the pound eventually. But somehow ended up becoming my BD pet and zapped into a Faerie Zafara, so now I'm keeping forever. But definitely do not like the name.

I named almost all my older pets after Scrubs characters... I kinda wish I had better ones now, haha. But I'm too attached to my pets to do anything about it.

Don't hate yourself, I named my pets xxx_88 and TT17 :arrowhead:.  

I am bad at giving names too and I was too lazy to find something good. This is how you get the worst names in the neopia :biggrin:

On Kiko day I was so excited to own a limited edition pet that I rushed through neopets creation in like 2 minutes, still a personal record! It was my second neopet, the first I named after myself, so fittingly I decided to name the second after my younger sister. At the end of the day, if all went to plan, I would be the proud owner of a red kiko named Karen24680.

Except I rushed through creation so quickly that I misspelled her name. Kare24680 instead of Karen24680. Admittedly, it wasn't a horrible screwup, but I still facepalm thinking about it. And then facepalm again for not creating another kiko that day with the correct name.
