Here’s Susan’s funny pet story, just as an example:

Naming a pet may sound like a simple task, but we have a large family, and naming by committee is never easy. Our current dog, Hazel, went nameless for six weeks as we haggled.

I wanted something clever and literary, like “Comma” or “Ellipses” or “Thurber”. I was vetoed. My middle son wanted to name her “Athena”, which was much too regal for our little fur ball. My dad had a great suggestion for our puppy’s name. He said we should call her “For Sale”. Get it? We own a pet store and our dog is “For Sale”. My kids didn’t think that was funny.

So, we named her Hazel, probably for the color of her hair, but I don’t really remember now. In the end, it was a matter of elimination rather than choice.
