• Amanda


We especially like Amanda, because the name comes from the Latin word "amandus" for "amiable". It could be a good match for a calm, balanced, and/or pretty animal, such as a guinea pig with a noble, smooth, or fluffy, fluffy coat. It could suit a small pony, a little bird or a slender shorthair cat, too.

• Amazon

In Greek mythology, Amazons are women which go to war like men. The term Amazon is often associated with a strong, self-confident, martial woman, a fighter. The name may not be easy on a cat, as it listens to a name with an "i" at the end best (given that the cat WANTS to listen). But for a bird, a reptile or a small animal, a rodent, maybe even a rat, the name could be perfect. By the way: Amazons are also called (tournament) riders.

• Aphrodite

Wow! If that is not an exceptional one! Aphrodite is the Greek goddess for beauty and love. We think that this name would suit a cat, maybe an Exotic Shorthair, British Shorthair, a Siamese, Russian Blue or Carthusian. Even an exotic pet like a praying mantis or a leopard gecko could be called Aphrodite. Here you will find even more pet names based on Greek mythology.


• Arielle and Ariela

What a magical name! It actually comes from Hebrew and could be translated with "Lion of God". Its Italian version is Ariela. Wouldn't it be a good choice for an elegant, slim female pet that likes to swim? OK. You got us. We had the little mermaid from the Disney movie on our minds.

• Aurora

Aurora is Latin and means "dawn". Isn't that romantic? We have to admit that the "au" at the beginning may not be quite easy to pronounce, but just by reading the name makes you dream, doesn't it? It sounds like a poem! According to Roman mythology, Aurora renews herself every morning and flies across the sky to announce the sun rising. If you take it seriously, it would be best for a pet that is diurnal, i.e. active during the day. Maybe a bird or a rabbit? Here are other beautiful pet names, which are based on Roman gods.
