It has happened.  We have finally went all the way down inside of the shitter and started using pet names for our kids.  Pepper is a perennial dog’s names, and now it’s being used on human children.

You can bet your ass, folks, that Pepper is merely the beginning of another sickening trend.  Rufus, Spot, Fido and Fluffy are sure to follow.  Prepare yourself to have a Muffin or a Chopper in your kid’s class.  Mark my words…this shit’s gonna happen.

I’ve never heard of a DOG named Pepper. Only people.

My best friend’s dog was named Pepper when we were growing up. It’s a dog name.

Known far more human Pepper’s than animal Peppers.

Where the fuck do you live?

There are no rules or laws or guidelines for what you can name a person. There are no strictly people names, or strictly dog names, or anything else. Pepper is just a name. Some people obviously hate it, like you, some people don’t care since a name’s a name, like me, and some people like it.

Nope – not true.

actually, there are rules. Lots. In some countries you can’t name your child Alex, only Alexandra or Alexander because they don’t want mix up with genders or whatever. My mother had to sign documents saying she understands that my name is a male name in some other country/language.

I was a vet tech for 10 years… I saw a lot of people AND their pets. Lots and lots of dogs and cats named Pepper- no people named Pepper. When I hear the name Pepper, I immediately think of a cute little Dachshund who’s last name was Potter. The only person who comes to mind is a fictional character with almost the exact same name. FICTIONAL PERSON, not a real person. This seems to support the idea that “Pepper equals dog or comic book character.”
