That’s my name, don’t wear it out.

Okay, I understand the appeal of the name “Maggie.” I have almost gotten used to people using the name for their favourite pets. But this is the last straw.
There was no sight of her seven-week-old puppy, Maggie, or the cage in which she used to carry it.
From now on, consider “Maggie” off-limits, pending approval on a case-by-case basis. Applicants will be asked to provide photos of the pet in question, not to mention a damned good reason, such as a wealthy aunt with the same name who has threated (in writing) to disinherit the applicant if said pet is named something more pet-like, such as “Fido.”
If you’re truly stuck, may I suggest this website.

  1. Have you ever read any of the “maggie” books, a series of children’s books about a dog who eats alphabet soup and develops the ability to talk? I suspect that some people name their dogs after the Maggie in these books. She’s awesome.
