Choosing a unique and fitting pet name can be challenging, especially if you've just adopted a pet from the shelter or another family that already has a name. If you're naming a recently born animal, you will need to figure out what distinct personality traits or characteristics the pet has so that her name reflects her nature.

Here are five tips for choosing the best pet name for your new member of the family:

1. Consider a famous name
Famous pets in history may be a good source of inspiration for naming your pet. If you want to turn your pet into a little celebrity, consider naming her after a famous pet, or even a famous character in history. Old Yeller, Lassie, Buddy, Benji, Rover and Rufus are just a few notable names in history.

2. Pick out a certain characteristic or personality trait
Most pet owners choose a pet name based on their pet's personality. For example, a dog that is especially affectionate, or one that runs very fast, may earn a name such as "Sweetie" or "Speedy." You can have fun with your pet's name if he has a dominating trait.

3. Choose a name that begins with a hard consonant
Names that begin with a "K," "T," "M" or "S" are easier to recognize than those that start with a vowel or other letters. Dogs in particular will pick up these names easily in a crowd or other noisy setting. You will also want to make sure the name doesn't rhyme with or sound like a word you might use in training.

4. Name your pet after a famous fictional character 
If you like the sound of a fictional character's name, practice calling it a few times to see if it might be a good match for your pet. Many pet owners choose a name from children's books, cartoon characters, TV programs or their favorite movie. Just make sure the name is an appropriate one that you wouldn't mind calling out in a public setting.

5. Keep it short and sweet 
Very long names can make it hard to train your pet. Most dogs are very sensitive to noise, and only need to hear the first few syllables of their name to react. If you do choose an especially long name, consider shortening it or using a nickname so that it only ends up being one or two syllables.

Yes, it's awesome. I love Japanese names, for example. So if you want to name your pet Miku or something it will go here.
