Pet Insurance Australia spokeswoman Nadia Crighton says it is important to consider how a name “carries” when you call it out before giving it to your pet (stock photo)
Ms. Crighton said it was important to consider whether the name would carry well when called out.
She said that two-syllable names for pets work best because they are the easiest for them to hear.
Ms. Crighton recommends having a few potential names on hand before you get your fur baby and trying them out for the first few days to see what fits.
She said it is worth thinking about what kind of name will continue to go with your pet as it gets older.
