Re: The Dog Thread: Our Furry Family and Friends
I actually considered a Trek name at first, but decided to name her after my late parents. My mom went by her middle name Kay ("K") and my dad was widely known as Jim ("J"). It's a way to help honor their memory. They both loved beagles and my dad owned some when he was a kid.
It would have been a Trek name otherwise.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
