The Name Game

When I first started my blog, my first post was about my name because many people and pets find my name interesting. I am always curious as to how our parents come up with the names they give us. I would love it if all my furiends did a post talking about how they got their name.
So, I decided to start The Name Game. I am tagging each and every one of you to post about your name and you can tag who ever you would like.
My furiend Sedona just posted about her nicknames and asked what ours were. I had planned to share them with you soon so I figured now was the perfect time.
The names I get called include but are not limited to:
Twixers
Twixie
Bootie Girl
Peanut
Lover Girl
Twizzle Stix
Beauty
Momma's Girl
Daddy's Girl
Cutie
Little Brown Nose Girl
Momma and Daddy were both home from work today, Yay! And they will both be home tomorrow, Double Yay! But Momma has to go to work on Wednesday even though Dad will be on staycation all week. They both left me today and "ran errands". I guess I will forgive them for that because a bag of Chicken Jerky came home this afternoon. Mom has to go get a new drivers license tomorrow but I think Dad plans to spend the day with me!
By the way, feel free to take my brand new button on the sidebar if you would like.

Thanks for sharing this post with us. We often thought about your name and wondered if you were named for the candy bar. Seems to suit you well. We will have to see if we can do a post about how we got our names too. Thanks for the idea. Wasn't it a very hot day today here?

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Very briefly, my Mom and Dad named me after Fiona Glenanne, the female lead in the tv show Burn Notice (she's a former IRA operative, among other things). A lot of people seem to think that I'm named after the Fiona in Shrek, but Mom and Dad prefer spies with explosives to animated characters!

Hi Twix,

That's a great idea... My name was given to me after I survived an arduous trip to arrive at where I am now. The button is pawsome.

Have fun with your parents.

Martha Basset said...

Hi Twix
We love your name cos it makes us think of the chocolate bar over here in the UK! It is delicious.
We don't know how we got our names - our mum thought about changing them when she adopted us but in both cases it was the only thing in the world we had - not even a collar!!!
So we thought the names should just stay!!!
We love all your other names.
love and kisses
