Immitation is the purest form of flatterly. If someone thinks your names are cute, I really don't see why it should hurt your feelings. Just this morning I saw a list of peoples webbie names and I had several of them in my webbie family.

Who would want to steal a name?!

I like coming up with my own...it's fun and makes it personal! I know from watching many Stadium Competition results that names and even the 1st 3 letters of usernames are constantly repeated, it's just going to happen with so many people but it's fun to get creative and think up your own unique name for each pet, sometimes you just want it to be yours alone!

I think it would be better to gain permission to get the same name from the person~

Thanks for reminding!

I don't really agree. If you post a creative name, what do you expect? People go around looking for creative names and if they come across something they like, why not use it?

It's not stealing really....if we weren't aloud to "steal" names in real life, then we would all just be named numbers because all combinations of letters would be "taken" as you put it.

If you post your names, take it as a form of flattery if someone copies it and if you really don't want anyone "stealing" the name, as you put it...then don't post it. That is the ONLY way you can ensure that your name is safe and yours.


-------

I personally would never want to copy a name...I put a lot of time into coming up with perfect names and I like to know that I came up with them. BUT if someone was to copy one of my names (which many have)...I feel honored.

You do have a point, but I can't say that I completely agree with you. Of course, someone can't just take your name (like "Mr. Pickles") and claim that they made it up. That wouldn't be right. But if the other person purely name their pet after yours, because they really liked it, I can't find anything wrong with that.

I hate to tell you but using Ms or Mr Kong is not stealing from you. It is stolen from the donkey kong game that was made for the original nintendo in the 1980s.

Someone could've also worked very hard on that name,like before i got my cocker spaniel (summer 2007) i had already chose out a name,Mr.Pickles (please don't steal the name Mr.Pickles)
Maybe you really want that name but it's very original and some one worked hard on it,even if you want it really badly,don't take it without permission from the owner of the webkinz with that name,and if the person say's you can not take it then DONT take it

Hi,

I am sorry that someone has stolen your pets names....

But, I wanted to let you know that (this is not to cause an arguement)....I have heard the name "Mr. Pickels" before, although, I can not remember where, and I DO call my pets at home--the "real" kind that DEMAND attention/food/expensive vet visits "honeybunches" at times....(normally, I call them "honey-bunches-of.....[this part depends on the day---could be FLUFF, could be KITTIES, could be....CATITUDES....]".---(so it would sound something like this-- oh look, my "Honey-bunches-of-Kitties" have come out for breakfast!....."Hi little Honey-bunch"......"Awww.....my little Honey-bunches-of-Catitude is not happy"....

I do think you have some great names, and I had never seen those names out there in the clubhouse or in webkinz world....I too try very hard to keep most of my names "unique" or "ironic"--such as calling one of my frogs-- "fluffy"....(have YOU ever seen a "fluffy" frog?)

I had named SEVERAL of my pets after "Magilla Gorilla" cartoon series....not just the gorilla---but, several other of the "people" in the cartoon....

I also have several from the "CLUE" game....

I have seen BOTH of those in the clubhouse or posted on here...yet, I know they were not stolen from me, but rather I did not pick the most original names for those when I picked those names....unlike my first pet's name.....which is one that I have posted on here several times. (at risk of having HIS name stolen....but, well....it may happen....)

Again, I am not trying to make you feel bad, just explaining how those 2 names may have become "taken" by others as well....

I do think if you DO have a unique name, and you do want to keep it very unique, then your best bet, is like others have mentioned---do not post it on here, or on other webkinz world either....like, use a different pet for the clubhouse.

Same thing with if you do not want to have a "unique" room idea stolen.....do not post it on here or advertise it in the mypage room idea section...

but, just a thought.....

ok--it was bothering me, so I looked up WHY the name "mr. pickels" sounded so familiar to me.....

It is the name of the "pickels" that are sold near me---the big deli style ones....LOL!! I seriously thought it was the name of one of the "pet" animals on tv on one of the commercials or something....like how they have the "sock puppet" dog you know....LOL!!

They have these giant pickels in wrappers stacked up on all the deli counters....NOW I know where I have seen the name at least.....uggh....wish it was something CUTER than a pickel....I bet "YOUR MR. PICKELS' " is cuter!

lol--fluffrnuttr

Default Re: Please don't steal other people's webkinz names

Yeah. Like if it's something original and 'means' something to you. Like I read where you got the name Honey Bunches. I forgot why though .
But if its a really common name like Fluffy for a persian cat. That really doesn't mean 'copying'. It looks fluffy. But lets say someone named a webkinz HotDog and its a golden retriever. You named it that because oyur golden retriever likes hotdogs. Then if someone saw that name and said, oh my gosh! That's such a cute name! May I use it for my webkinz?
Then, I would say yes because they asked so very nicely. But what if they didn't read about anywhere and named like a Dachshund hotdog? It's a very common name.
So yeah.
Rep for you.
