Take a look at The Best Pet Name Book Ever. It'll get your creative juices flowing and the funny pet illustrations will make you laugh or at least chuckle. Of course, my favorite is the one of a Basset Hound named Floppy.

Names are categorized according to general subject areas such as pet's appearance, personality, historical, religious, royalty, screen and television, cartoon characters, sports, etc. I like the chapter on naming pairs. Here's one from that chapter... Chips and Salsa. There's also a chapter on naming trios.

The author, a veterinarian of thirty years, recommends that the book be used "as a tool to spark your imagination." I'm sure you'll find it to be helpful! I have the third edition on kindle although a newer edition has been released.
