My cousin is half Greek so my fascination isn’t that far-fetched. And when I was thinking about it, I was surprised at how many pet names based on Greek mythology I could come up with.
If you have a cat, then look no further! Cats are very self-sufficient animals, which is often misconstrued as self-absorbed. If they want to lie in the sun all day, then they will.
Got a pet snake? Well remember the beautiful Gorgon who was cursed for breaking her vow? Medusa’s hair became entirely made of snakes.
Hera is the goddess of marriage and childbirth. And bunnies don’t get the stereotype of always having a lot of kids for no reason.
In Greek mythology, Hermes is Zeus’ messenger. What animals do you know that convey a message? This name would be great for either a dog or a parrot. I’m thinking of having a new pet parrot together with excellent propellerhead reason 6 at musicians friend this week.
Dogs are smart! My friend is currently training a German Shepherd for the Seeing Eye Foundation and they are in the process of house-breaking him. Whenever he needed to go to the bathroom, he never went to the back door like they wanted.
There are some rich pet names based on Greek myths. I hope these suggestions get you thinking. What are some other good pet names?
If you raise your children with healthy habits, they have a 60% decrease in being obese as an adult, a lower risk of diabetes, lower blood pressure and a more positive mind and body image. Chances are when your children have their own children one day, they will relay these habits to their little ones so you can help generations to come. So make a change today by following habits of health families:
Eliminate The High Sugar Cereal
For breakfast it is important to have protein and a complex carb, but sugary cereal is not on the nutrition necessity list for your body, so skip this,
Never Skip Breakfast
One thing I never do is skip breakfast. Even if I am not hungry I still have something to eat, because it is important to “break the fast” and get your metabolic rate going in the morning.
Do Not Focus Parties around Food
Focus a party around games, activities and have some healthy food choices. Fun and food should not go hand in hand, unless it is healthy food, of course.
Do Not Force Your Child to Eat
There were many times I just did not have the appetite to eat any more when I was a child, so now as a mom when I call the shots, I never force my children to eat anything on their plate. As long as they eat their salad and their greens, they can be excused from the table.
Skip The Soda
Soda has so many adverse effects on your health, so why expose your children to this? When in need of a change I make a fruit smoothie. This tops my tips of habits of healthy families because it makes a big difference.
On a side note, Thanks Brother for my new baggs lyric! It’s super cool!.
