Default Unanswered: Can two pets be named the same name?

I got my daughter the Lil Seahorse for Christmas and I went to put it on her account. It wouldn't let me adopt it, it kept saying, "Server Error, please try again later." So I tried to add her snowman, and it did just fine. I tried the seahorse again, and it took, but the picture showed the snowman, with the seahorse's name. When I went to play with them, the seahorse wasn't there. Then I realized one of her pets already had the same name she chose for the seahorse. I went back to add the seahorse again, under a different name, and now it's saying the secret code has already been used. Now I don't have a seahorse on her account! Did I screw something up by trying to use the same pet name twice?

I've already called Ganz and left a message. I was just wondering if any of you have ever run into this? I sure hope Ganz can get my seahorse to work...my daughter has been begging for it since November!

I read about the same thing happening to another member a few weeks ago. Try logging out and logging back in. Both webbies should be there.

You can use the same name twice, I believe, because I have 2 sea otters named Oscar. (I'm not very original with names...lol)

Ganz will call you back soon.

Hmmmm......Try clearing your cache like mathmom said. If that doesn't work try closing all of your WW windows, then opening new ones. I have found that some of the glitches on my account go away after that.

Sorry your having trouble with your account. As far as I know, you can adopt more than one pet with the same name. Did you try clearing your cache? Hope everything is straightened out when Ganz calls you back.

Oh that's funny! My son named his otter Oscar too! (Spelled Oskar). I wonder where he came up with that name? Too funny...

Well, I guess giving the sea horse the same name isn't the reason it didn't show up. It must have been just one of those bad glitches.
