    Once upon a time I recycled the name "Mark" on my fish. Technically, they all had a different name though.

    There was:
    Beta Experiment Mark I
    Beta Experiment Mark II
    Beta Experiment Mark III
    &
    Beta Experiment Mark IV

    FYI Cicero means chickpea. In other words, garbanzo bean.

    Garbanzo bean is an apt description of a labrador.

    Banzo beans reminds me of those throat balls my friend used to show me when we were kids. She'd pull them out of her mouth after she made them come out of the back of her throat. Then she's smish them and try to make the other kids smell 'em. That was nasty.

    What are those things? I get them occasionally and they're nasty.

    Tonsil stones are made of bacteria, food bits, and other detritus that form a nasty wad.

    Tonsilloliths, or tonsil stones. Tonsillolith would be a good name for a dog.

    BTW, this thread is another example of why I love foo. A thread about recycling conventions for domesticated animal nomenclature turns into a thread about tonsilloliths.

    I don't think I've ever reused a pet name though. There are just so many interesting names that I want to use that I can't have enough pets to keep up. And sometimes--like in the case of my doggy, Ada Agusta Byron King, Countess of Lovelace--I just throw all the names at one pet. XD

    You didn't have Cicero for very long. Would it bother you to use the name again?

    Tiberius or Marcus would be good, too.

    If you reuse Cicero, how about Cicero, Cicerover, Ciceroverandover, Ciceroverandoverandover......

    My mom, on the other hand, has had 12 cats named Georgie and 4 named Sam. Georgies have all been siamese and Sam's whatever. Keeps it simple I guess, won't ever forget a name... and you can do like the Simpsons... Snowball 1...Snowball 2... Snowball 3... I think they have only had one Santa's Little Helper.
