Love Atticus and Puck. Perfect pet names!
Both names just sing to me, LOL.
I love love love the name Josephine. In my Boy Meets World obsession days, I was determined that I was going to have a little girl, name her Josephine, and call her Feeney. LOL
Atticus would be a great pet name!
I never even though about calling her Feeny. I love it!
Love the names you picked out. All are unique!
Great list. I really like the idea of using the GoT family house names as pet names, some of them would work really well.
I named my family’s cat Puck, and I’ve seen this name quite a few times in lists, I didn’t even know this is such a well-loved name 😮
I think Cricket is also a very cool name for an animal, maybe a dog or a cat or a mouse!
Oh and I was watching Sleepy Hollow the tv-show and there he’s called Ichabod, is it a spelling error or is it spelled differently in the book?
Spelling error on my part *facepalm*
My mom used to dogsit a Cricket. She was so cute.
Love Wilhelmina! Sound very old school. Great Top Ten 😀 My Top Ten Tuesday!
Such a fab list 🙂 I love reading ideas for names!
Perfect, I have Widget on my list and you have Poppet. I adore both names so much for a pet. Great list!
Thanks! Yes, they are both awesome names.
I love Atticus as a pet name! Great idea!
Thank! I’ve always loved the name!
Atticus and Puck actually made my list this week too. I would totally name a pet parrot or parakeet Kestrel! 😀

Hi! I named my dog Mr. Darcy 🙂 I like Atticus. A friend’s mom named her dog Atticus.
Thanks for stopping by Leslie. I think Atticus is a great name for a dog 🙂
Cricket is a cute name for a pet. Especially something small and active.
That’s exactly what I picture for a Cricket, lol.
