your philosophy on naming

What types of names does everyone prefer for their hedgies?

Character names from books? Movies? Cartoons?

"People" names like Geoffrey or Linda?

Names that describe what they look like--Spike, Urchin, Koosh Ball?

Do you prefer to have a name all picked out before they come home, so as to hopefully grant certain traits and characteristics to him/her?

Or do you believe that one should wait and see what his/her personality is already like, and name accordingly?

I'm interested to know!

I work in PetsMart on the weekends, and basically just wonder around the store. There is a New Puppy Center in the main isle with all sorts of puppy stuff that I walk by constantly, and on it are these treats by Kong called Puppy Ziggies. I thought to myself one day, "Hey, Ziggie would be a cute name for a Hedgehog" and later asked my hubby what he thought. He agreed (I've trained him well, lol), but I decided to end it with a "y" instead of an "ie" because that's how I name everyone. (My son is Kory, my dog is Murphy, and my tortoise is Timmy.)

So, that is how Ziggy got his name, after a puppy treat! =)
