I just got a new mini dotson/chihuahua, he is very cute. I'm stuck on trying to find a name for him, and I was wondering, how do you figure out what to name your pet? Do you look at the color of your pet,his or her personality, or what? Give me your ideas!

With the hamster that me and my housemate got, we decided that it should have a drama name as we are both drama students at university. We also wanted something a bit more unusual, so not Shakespeare as an example! We thought we would be getting a female hamster and so settled on Columbina - a Commedia dell arte character. When we went to get hamster they didn't have any female hamsters so we got a male. We decided to go with another Commedia character - Sylvio and it fits well as he his completely grey. So perhaps you could think of an author or someone you admire to name your pet?
