Please list name and what it was. My alltime favorite was my cute little Winterwolf named FlufferSnaps


Back when I played WoW, I met a guy on the forums with a voidwalker that the game named Craknutz. This was, mind you, not the player's choice.

A great name for a pet is Taters.


"Emergency Snack"

"Jerky"

"Dogmeat". I love Dogmeat. *Sniff* What a loyal dog.

My half Bas'o, half Andoran lion shaman's companion is named Siphelele, which means "we are complete" in the Zulu language. It may not be as clever or funny as some of the other names people have mentioned but I really like it as it says a great deal about the character's attitude toward his four-legged friend.

I had a gnome rogue/wizard with Kiki the Wonder Ferret.

Shouldn't this thread be more appropriately titled "The Most Stupid Name You Gave Your Familliar?


I feel absurd just writing this, but... in one of my games we've got some... odd names.

There's a horse named Bear.
A boar named Goose.
A toad named... Toad.
And an owl named Leprechaun.

...Yeah. It's an interesting group.


My two favorites "Fluffy Five" (the fifth AC for the character because it just kept dying)

and LiFHo (which stood for little furry hostage)


Hilda the ale carrying goat.


We now have Bob the Velociraptor.

He picks locks.


There was a guy in our group named Ben who had an habit of getting a pack animal (typically a horse or a donkey) and naming it sprinkles... The gm seemed to have a problem with it so the dozen incarnations of sprinkles invariably met an untimely death.

Ben moved away but his legacy lives on. The gm who always murdered sprinkles is now a player and makes a habit of getting a donkey and naming it Ben in the hopes it will meet a grizzly death.

I never actually ran it, but I made a madness Witch whose thrush was going to be named Sheogorath. I thaught that would be the best since a thrush can talk, and I'd always do an impression of it's namesake when it did.


The one we still talk about was my friend's animal companion "Buck the Wonder Dog".

With a little animal growth spell here and some wizard buffing there (anyone remember the Arcane Hierophant prestige class?) the line, "Buck! Put down that Frost Giant!" became a classic at our table.


Betty the horse, who got awakened. Hilarious situations invariably occurred!


Not quite a familiar or animal companion, but I just finished a campaign with a summoner who named his eidolon Pooky - we'd been playing Red Dragon Inn near the beginning of that campaign...

A pitbull named Noam Chompsky.

No. This is a thread for people to post their favorite names for pets or familiars, and what that creature is.


A Barn Owl familiar named Barny Minervason.

An ape companion who was a "babooragutan" named Skwigmont.

A mule named "old Number 7"....how many of us are old enough to remember that one?
my Wow Hunter pet Wolf ..."Nutbiter"

Scarab Sages

I'm making my familiar for my half-elf wizard...it's either gonna be a Compsognathus named Scout, a raven named Allen Poe, or a dodo named Martin.


Book. Thats the name for my witches Familiar.


You have a pet Cosmetologist?

Don't suppose it's a German Shepherd?

My summoner (garden variety, before all the fancy stuff from UC or UM) spends the minute summoning his Eidolon by vomiting forth his creation.

Its name is Bulimia.

If you're talking about the dog from Fallout 3... *sniffle* I loved that dog so much I cheated on Fallout 3 ONLY to make him unkillable. I couldn't bear the thought of not having that dog.

I named my adorable little compsognathus Compy :)

There's only one good name for a Raven. Quoth.


Our current game contains 3 animals:

An owl familiar named Brant

The most skittish Clydesdale in history named Thunder

...And a girl donkey named Bob ("We didn't look UNDER the thing before we named it!")

A couple other interesting familiars we had in way old 1 and 2e games:

a crow called Blaserleak

a tarantula named Mr Jeepers

Untrue. Hunin and Munin are also acceptable names for a Raven. Especially if you can find a way to get two familiars.

Heh. With the DLC due to a calculation error he had over 8k HP (just like Fawkes and the robot companion) so he was pretty much unkillable anyway.


T-Rex Animal Companion "Nibbles"

Wagon pulling Donkey that belonged to a friend "Hote"(hoe-TAY)

Wolf mount for nature oracle "Winston"

Hyendadon that was charmed by Serpent Sorceror "Giggles"

Crocodile companion "Grin" (ended up being the source of the tactical request "croc me" as the Croc's owner made liberal use of the benign transposition spell back in the day)


Had a Raven named Quoth (Terry Pratchett, great stuff) as a sorcerer's companion. His language was Abyssal, nobody (including the sorceror) spoke it. He would sit on his shoulder and say something horribly unintelligible and unnerve everyone (including the sorceror).

In a Rifts game had a horse called "The Horse" who was part of an power-armor hover cycle charge on an entrenched compound. I don't even think he was armored. Made it all the way to the fort without taking a jot of damage. Later we left him in charge of the compound. It was an odd party, I think the Crazy Troll baptized him in his imaginary religion too.

Had a half-orc ranger in an Eberron campaign with a viper companion named Yig.


My brother's scout in my first campaign from GMside had a horse named Bucker.

In my second game the group ended up with an Earth Elemental buddy named Bob.

My Sorc in an evil campaign had an owl named Gloaming. I just recently used the name again, as the familiar of a Winter Wolf Witch.

My Witch in a now-paused game had a cat/silvanshee-in-disguise named Ksusha, but I forget what that means.

Silver Crusade

Let's see here.

My Rogue Skilz's list.

The Nameless Blade - +1 Elven Curved Blade
Shipwreck - Cold Iron Dagger
Teo - Silver MW Dagger
Pudding - Dagger of Venom
Clubba - Club
Bubba - Club
Freebie - +1 Dagger
Slipknot - +1 Keen Rapier
Temauthi - +1 Cold Iron Kukri
Vanthiss - +1 Shock Dagger
Usagi - +1 Keen Sickle
Puss - Dart
Ooze - Dart
Happy Fun Time (also reverse pineapple) - +2 Human Bane Dagger (three other party members are human)
Panicked the Dragon Slayer - +1 Composite Longbow
Liberation - Sunblade

What, Familiars? He prefers the company of his weapons list over, well, everything else. And yes, those are how they are listed on my sheet and what I call them in game (except the human bane dagger, which I claim to have not named yet). And in the order received to boot.

Liberty's Edge

The wolf AC of our Druid in RotRL is called "Friend", because he is the Druid's friend.

BTW, the Druid's name is "Tree" because he is a warforged made from wood.

In the same RotRL party, my Ranger's name is Sir Felix and he calls his Griffon AC "The Cat", so that they are "Sir Felix and The Cat".

My Andoran Milani-worshipping freedom fighter in PFS has a Raven Familiar called Liberté (ie, Freedom). He sometimes calls her around "Liberté, Liberté chérie", which can be translated by "sweet, sweet Freedom".


Gorff, the riding boar.


@Xzaral: Hah! The Magus in my Kingmaker game does that. He got the +1 composite bow and named it Cynthia and a dagger named Reginald. He probably would have named his Black Blade longsword if it didn't already have a name (Red Right Hand).


in 3.5e I had a druid with a dire weasel animal companion named Mr. Nibbles. We had a difficult encounter with a rakshasa since we didn't have any weapons to harm it but Mr. Nibbles managed to get through its DR with a maxed out crit and drained his Con.

In World of Warcraft, I used to have a hunter with a pet cat named Dog. I actually had people insulting me in tells over that name. I also made another hunter who was an orc hunter named Elfymage, and she had a pet boar named Elemental (since frost mages have water elementals as pets).


I will add that a long-running half-orc barbarian I had in a Forgotten Realms game wore a loincloth he'd made out of a dire weasel that had nearly killed him.


I once played a drow sorceress with a black viper familiar (arcane bloodline) called Ollie. I thought it was cute.


Just remember a Raven familiar my Bard had that he called "Nevermore Quoth".


bards get familiars?


They could in older editions. All that was needed was access to the spell "Find Familiar."


I had a wizard whose rabbit familiar was named Button.
We had a druid with a pet goat named Clover.
One gnome named his donkey Cabbage.

I can't remember what we named an adopted snotling in Warhammer Fantasy, but it probably wasn't pleasant.

I had a raven familiar named Nevermore


You should always call your invisible servant 'Mr Snuffalupagus.'
