Naming Pets & Mounts

#1 Unread post by Gumballs » Tue Apr 27, 2010 9:18 pm

Okay, so I know this is more directed at vanity pets and mounts rather than hunter pets, but I wanted to ask this anyways, and this seemed like the best place!

So, I have a question for you. Do any of you guys name your vanity pets or mounts?

I personally name every mount and vanity pet I get, or I try to. Some times it takes a little time to find the right name, but I usually figure some out. Some are quirky names, others are serious, others are allusions.

I've put up a poll to answer the question, but some actual responses would be awesome! I'm curious to see, especially with the majority of the WoW hunter community being such animal lovers :)

I name my mounts more than vanity pets. :P
Much more fun riding around on a green netherdrake yelling "HIGH HO, WELSH GREEN!"

Well, Decay's (and in extention Deteriorate's) deathcharger is named Razor, but other than those two mounts, no.

I also exist on DeviantArt.

The only non-hunter pet animal I've named is my Venomhide raptor, whom I've dubbed "Munchy". Those who have done the Venomhide raptor dailies will understand immediately why I named him this. :lol:

I still don't know how a tiny little hatchling managed to eat 12 silithid eggs that were the same size he was...

Part of me has always wanted to name my mounts (and maybe a few minipets), but for some reason because there isn't a way to physically do that I don't really give them names. I like being able to visually see if I name something in game. Without that I'd just forget about it. ><

I know there's that new addon for vanity pets where you can give them names and get reputation and such. I might have to try that out, but I'd be more interested in a mount version. :3

lol.

You rename them in your head. :P

I stopped naming Kalli's mounts once I started going for the dragonhawk, but the others, on all toons, have names. Whether I REMEMBER said names is another story; some have more personality than others. But I wrote 'em all down for reference.

Yeah, I really wish there was some way to actually name your mounts/vanity pets. The PetsPlus addon is great, but I would love a mount version as well xD

I mean honestly, how difficult would it be for Blizz to add a naming system? For mounts it could just be a personal thing. In the tab say the nickname and the mount name. And for pets say (for example):

Etrusa
<Gumballs's Sprite Darter Hatchling>

And I have a giant list so I can remember all my mount/pet names. It's massive..

Very rarely I name my mounts (never vanity pets). I named my old warlock's dreadsteed Calcifer and I believe Rhyela's white tiger mount was named Tenseiga. My nether drakes retain their given name (Onyxien, Voranaku, etc.). If I manage to get a proto-drake someday, that just might be cool enough to deserve a name. :)

On my Night Elf, I named my Perky Pug Sir Barks-a-Lot
I get weird stares sometimes, but that was the one pet I actually coveted to have :mrgreen:

I always put a lot of thought into my hunter pet's names, but I have way too many vanity pets and mounts to name them all :)

This post should be moved to the "Other Things We Like" Forum, or someone needs to restart it in the proper forum, it'll get more traffic that way :)
