DIXIECUP, i totally agree with you.

if everyone can try to imagine how many people out there that play ww....and the vast amount of pets that have been adopted.... there are so many names that it staggers the mind.

now if someone comes to wi to join and be a member, they do so with the notion to show off their pets. we can't expect every one to search every thread and name to make sure they aren't copying someone's name. if they post a name and it is the same as someone elses, they can't be faulted because they loved their pet and gave it a name that was the same as someone elses.

i usually research my pets before i adopt them and i DO try to give my pets unique names. i only post the names when i introduce them in the LOOK WHAT I GOT forum. then the names stay pretty much in the house thread because i gave the pet's rooms a name after them. but if someone were to see one of those WELL THOUGHT OUT names.... and used it, i can't be anything but pleased that someone like the name so much and wanted to use it.

now dixiecup.... how do you pronounce that name ??????

I named a cat (a real live one) Kit Kat about 10 years ago. Does that mean you copied me? No. Like Dixiecup said, no name is truly original except for the one Dixie came up with (which I am not even going to attempt to spell). We are going to have similar thoughts because for the most part we are exposed to the same media and advertising. My sister called her husband honey bunches before they were married (they have been married for 13 years) because of the honey bunches of oats commercials. If you see the same name no matter how original it may seem to you, chances are, someone has already used it or is thinking of using it.

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

Ok....I guess I will try to sum it up a bit here----

If you name your pet after a FOOD (such as KIT KAT or Honey Bunches [of oh's].....), or milkshake, ect.....

OR, if you name your pet after a STATE, a CITY, someone famous--even if it is a cartoon character....then, the name is NOT unique....unless YOU created that character (like my co-worker's once made a comic book series called "SHUCK MAN" ) and then NEVER showed that comic book to ANYONE so, no one else knew about that character name.....

But, to edit my previous post I started calling my pets at home "honey bunches-of...(fill in the blank by the day)"....as my "pet name" for my husband is "honey"....and after my head injury, I had a REALLY hard time with my animals names....so, I started calling THEM "honey"....well, my husband could not understand why I was telling him to STAY, WAIT, GO DO YOUR BUSINESS....ect....so, I started adding words to the "honey"....such as "honey bunny"...."honey bunches of puppy"....."honey bunches of snowball"....ect. (it never really made much sense, but, I could say that easier without stuttering.

The mister pickels....I did see that finally last night on a commerical....it was a little chihaha kind of dog....and the lady was running a doggy day care...I have no idea WHAT they are actually seliing in the commericial, but, she says the dogs name specifically....

Do I think it is a shame when you picked out a "great name" and someone steals it on you? Yeah....but, if the name is one that is not entirely "unique".....it is bound to happen.....by either someone purposely, or just accidently.
