When you meet a pet with a perfectly fitting name, you have to wonder: did her name shape her personality, or the other way around?

Some people prefer short and sweet names while others like to bestow long, regal titles on their furry friends. But whatever you choose, you’re bound to come up with dozens of silly nicknames anyway, just because you love your dog so much.
