Our Names

Reilly is having a contest. All you has to do is tell about your names.

My name is Fenris Wolf and it comes from Norse Mythology. My youngest boy bean gave me my name. Mommy was going to name me Marrock after a character in a book she was reading. My nicknames are Fen and Fenny Merriny (Daddy calls me that for some reason, not sure we spelled it right)

Scylla ~ Greek Mythology, because Mom & Dad felt like they were between Scylla & Charybdis when the twins wanted their bottle. Daddy named them. He told Mommy she could keep the twins if he could name them.

Artemisia ~ Youngest boy bean named her Artemis from Greek Mythology but Mom lengthened it to the name of a flower. Most of the time they call her Arty Mouse, Mouse or Itty Bitty Kitty cause she is so little.

Socks ~ He looks like he is wearing white Socks. He is also called Sockie-Pooh and Kitty. Youngest Boy Bean named him when he was very YOUNG.



  1. We love how your names come from mythology - of course, Fenris is our favorite. We also love blueberries. Dad shares his with us every morning at breakfast.

    Happy Fourth of July.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  2. We like the name game...we may have to play!

    Artemisia's nickname suits her very well!

    Happy 4th of July to the fur & bean family at your house, Fenris!

  3. Wow, your boy bean is very very smart! I asked my mom and she had never even heard of the name Fenris before. You all have Most Beautiful names!

    Happy 4th!

  10. Very neat!! I did know, not because I know mythology so well, but because your names were so different, I had to look them up when I first met you!! :-) Thanks, Fenris!

  11. Oh thank you for joining in - we love reading about every furbaby got their names. I am very pleased to meet you too


  12. What pretty and unique names! I had a cat named socks once too :)

  13. I think you'd revealed the secret of your names before, but I'd forgotten!

    I love that your names are creative (hey, I'm sure the very young boy bean felt creative with Socks), and they roll off the tongue!

  14. So that's how you all got your names! Such interesting stories. We especially wondered where Scylla and Charybdis came from. (Hey, we spelled Charybdis without peeking.)
