quite a few months ago, i was posting around and a new member posted on my profile page that i was using the avatar that they used on another site. i politely responded and said that i had gotten it from the internet ( i had no way of knowing) and that i hadn't copied anyone.
quite random....and this is the only site i go to on a daily basis other than ww.

if i know someone had it personally made here in an avvie shop, i would NEVER think to even ask if i could use it..... but the internet is really up for grabs.

The name Honey Bunches is just like the cereal... Just like naming from a candy or food or city or whatever... Lots of people name webkinz after things like that...

And someone said that they saw a Mr. Pickles... so did i in the trading room.. So these names might seem like you created them or thought them up , but there are a LOT of creative people out there coming up with names also

If the names are that special then just keep the name to yourself if you are worried someone may "steal" it...

Take all the names you want from anywhere!
Use anything you like anywhere!

It is just a Webkinz pet! People look for names from all over to get ideas to name real children in the real world. And they don't have to ask permission or be wary of being kicked out of something or people holding petty grudges. It is just a word, a name, lots of letters put together. who cares get over it, & have fun. Let them have fun.

Don't make a big deal out of slly little very trivial things that don't really mean anything. There are much greater things to focus on. Just have fun in WW for what it is, a fun diversion from lifes many troubles.

This whole thread should just stop. Simple rational would be this is not really debatable. It just is a simple matter of some of our younger, immature members being very focused on this and taking this all way to deeply and personally. Don't internalize what is just a simple matter of names. Instead perhaps feel flattered or feel a unity or sense of comradery in the similarities we find in others. My sons account is full of lots of Harry Potter named animals and we get excited when we find similar in the trading rooms. Just enjoy, be happy, have fun

Lighten up!

LOL both me and my mom named our racoons "Rocky," and neither one of us knew the other was going to do it.

I think its terrible you are accusing people of theft over something so petty. What others name their pets has no affect on you at all.

Names are never really original unless they are completely made up (like Dixiecup's). I mean my name is Katie and I alone know about ten other Katie's. Names are constantly repeated because naming someone after another person is a big form of flattery!

I'd only care if someone used a name I made up that was orignal, and did bad things with that name pretending to be me. Like if someone on purpse came up with "Cuffy1" on here and went around saying bad things to peope it would hurt my reputation. Or if I had a lion named SimbaFromMa" and somone had a lion on ww named "Simbafrommass" and made some bad trades in the chatroom then people would think it was me and that would hurt my repuation, too. But I guess that would be a case of impersonation rather than name imitation.
But other than that, names I come up with are either common enough that people think of on their own anyway, or something I got from a movie or book "Zaphira" "Simba" or from a Grateful Dead tune etc. so if anyone has done any "stealing" it's me.

Unless the name is completely made up, it's not really stealing at. Honey Bunches is a name of a cereal, a lot of people might use that if they know the cereal. Now let's say you make up a name all yourself like "RamenRawr." Now, if someone uses that you may be able to say they could have taken it, but you can never be sure, because someone may have come up with that idea on their own, just like I just did. Most names are going to be used a lot more times than once, especially if you go in the TR. If you don't want a name to be used, just try not to post on the forum. (:
