What's In A Name : Cosmo and Ling

Once Mommy knew we were staying for good, she had the task of naming us. It took her WEEKS because she wanted to get to know our personalities first. Eventually, after countless hours spent surfing the internet for names and their definitions and also watching us, she finally knew what our names were.
For some reason, the name COSMO seem to scream out to Mommy everytime she looked at me. She couldn't find a definition of Cosmo but it sounded fun and goofy, just like me...hey! I'm not goofy! I have so many variants to my name and oh, so embarrassing! Mo-Be, Mo-Me, Mo-Mo, get the idea.

One day, while Mommy was chatting with her cousin about how much was spent when I was hospitalized twice for blockage, her cousin remarked "what do you expect when you named him Cost-More"?  Apparently this was supposed to be funny. *rolls eyes*

I was almost named Socks for obvious reasons but Mommy said I reminded her of Ling from Ally McBeal and when she looked up the definition of Ling, it was all me! Petite, demure *cough cough* and elegant. Mommy and Daddy liked to hide and yell "BOO!" as I walked by, which made me yell at them. Apparently, they found this fun and so I collected my other name...Ah Boo....

Thank you, Oui Oui for hosting this event!  :) Sorry we are late for the event, but Mommy was a little unwell (she's okay now!).

Awesome event, Oui Oui. I am curious as why Oui Oui is named Oui Oui, too.

Hello Cost- More and Ling. LOL. I love the origins of your name. They're cute. And Ling, you are pretty. You and Cosmo have very very beautiful eyes.

Huggies and Cheese,

We love your names. Grace & Company think someone should have been more inventive when they were named!!

We love how you got your names! Your mom did a good job picking just the right ones. That reminded me of another of Oui Oui's names I forgot about, Meertah. Like you, the Girl would jump out and yell, but she'd yell "Meertah" at Oui Oui then they would chase each other through the house.
