How to Name a Pet Rock
Having a pet rock can be lots of fun, but naming it can be difficult. Choosing a name that sticks can be troublesome for various reasons. However, if you go about it the right way, it can be quite simple.
1Do you want it to be a boy or a girl? Your pet rock can also be just neither gender. Decide before getting too attached, as your pet isn't meant to change gender. This can also have a heavy impact on the name, therefore it's best to decide early on.
2Think of well known human names and jot them down on a piece of paper. Contemplate whether a popular name or a unique name fit best. Maybe you just like the particular sound of a name. For some rocks, a generic name may fight better. This can be based on the owner's personal opinion or if the rock is unique in color and shape in the first place. Take into account the physical characteristics of the rock, you may come up with a creative pun!
3If you can't think of anything you like, look online. Flip through baby names or pet names. You never know what you might find.
4Does it have a mark or crystal or something else special? Name it after that. For example, if this rock has a spot, you can name it Spot.
5For example, don't limit yourself to names like Rocky or Pebbles just because he/she is a rock. Keep an open mind and choose the name you like best and you think fits your rock best. Whatever you choose, have confidence in it.
6Test out the name by going somewhere and seeing how friends feel about it. No matter what they say, keep confidence in the name you choose. If you put effort into the name, you should be happy with it!
