Not very creative here, all my pets get russian names:
Raven - Voron (russian for 'a raven') or Ptashka (russian for 'a small bird')
Bear - Misha (russian for 'teddy-bear' or any bear in folk tales)
Polar Bear Cub - Umka (from the russian cartoon, I like this pet most because I love the cartoon )
Lynx - Koshka (russian for "a cat")
Sabretooth - Barsik (a very popular cat name, also means 'a small panther')
Some great names around! I especially like the eagle name Sulurnil, very appropriate! I spent forever picking out a name for my own eagle, trying to come up with combinations of nobility and wind... you did much better!
When I first got pets, I thought I'd just name them something ridiculously trivial, but by the time I got the lynx my tastes in pet names had changed into something more lore-appropriate. Thus:
Raven: Fred (good old Fred)
Bear: Bill (a very butch name)
Eagle: Thoronarth (Sindarin for "noble eagle")
Bunny: Bertrand (because if I ever get a real pet bunny I will call him Bertrand, after Bertrand Russell)
Fox: Ginger (obvious)
Turtle: Blossom (I was in the Shire when I got the turtle, and it's so cute)
Well,m hard to say since I keep more than one cosmetic skin for each pet to match my outfits... but these are my most used:
Raven (blood): Lenore. -predictable, I know.
Bear (Tundra Cub): Kleine -means 'small' in german.
Lynx (all): ThereYouAre -because I can never find the little bugger.
Eagle: Amira -I just like that name.
Bog Lurker: Don't remember.... I never really used the eagle or the lurker.
Sabretooth Cat: Diego - again, predictable..
Spirit Sabretooth: Dieghost.
Spirit Cub: Whineytheghost
Default Spirit: FuzzBall
My LM's name is Juliaugusta, after Livia Julia Augusta, Augustus' wife (I was living in Rome and on a bit of a Roman history kick when I made her :P ). So all of my pets are named after Roman emperors.
(snow) Raven: Constantine
Sabretooth: Claudius (he was named Nero, but someone complained, so I changed him to another, less-known, evil emperor)
My spirit pets are off-topic, though. My spirit boar is Leroy, because he likes to wander off and aggro things, and has killed me more than once (I just came back from a 3 month break - do they still do that?) and for some reason I can't think of my spirit lynx's name.
Ignore the user name... I'm a girl! ~~~ Also Lohla - Warden
I play a lot in the moors... so some deception is in order
Eagle - Raven
Bear - not used much, but NextYearsCoat
My lynx is usually stealthed, so recently I'm naming him after well-known players with hard to spell names, so as to attract the wargies.
Raven - Either Eagle or something like "FifthOutpost" in order to draw the attention away from me
Raven: (Black Raven) is Moraer, which is sindarin for Black-king. and my (Frost Raven) is Mithaer, which is silver-king.
Bear: Beowulf (duh....because it means Bear.) and my (black bear) is Beolaf
Bog lurker: NimLas (white leaf)
Eagle: (my ember eagle) is Ghalafas
I don't have all the pets yet but here are the ones I do have:
Raven - Ember because it helps with fire.
Bear - Meryl, which is an unintended reference to Trigun.
Lynx - Thunder, which was thought off the top of my head at the time but now all I can think of is "Thunder Cat." XD
As for cosmetic pets:
Rabbit - Lilac
Turtle - Lavender
Cat -Alice, as a reference to Alice in Wonderland.
So my husband, who normally plays World of Warcraft, and who has been a F2P player here for nearly a year, couldn't get excited about the game when he attempted to level a champ. However he's been watching me play my low-level LM and he had his interest rekindled, and so yesterday he rolled one himself. I'm a jeweler, so I sent him a scroll to learn to call a blood raven.
He named it KaelThas, after Kael'Thas Sunstrider, prince of the blood elves, one of the big villains/raid bosses in WoW.
My blood-raven used to be called Merlin, but Turbine doesnt allow that name anymore :/ Currently in PvMP hes called "FlyYouFools"
Eagle - Throndir
Bear cub - Wargsnack (PvMP)
Lynx - Morris
Sabretooth - Tiaga
Bog-lurker - Benjamin
