Pets by numbers

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - What's in a name? Everything when it comes to your pet. Choosing the right name for your pet will enhance their personality. So says Giana Rosetti, an electrical engineer who's written a book entitled "Numerology for Pets." Her advice: don't name your pet right away.

"Wait about two weeks or so without naming him. Look at the pet. Think about a name, keep calling him and see how he's reacting, his behavior toward the name. If you are not satisfied, change the name.

"Any scientist can tell you that in terms of human language, the first vowel is the most important sound. You learn their behavior with the first vowel of their names, and you learn their reaction, which is the sum of all the vowels of their names," Giana said.

Giana, who calls herself "The Pet Engineer," hosts an internet show on the subject. She uses her once aloof cat as an example of how a name can change behavior.

"I changed it from Mitchell to Michu, putting my emphasis on the letter "I"… Mi-chu, Mi-chu, instead of Mitchell. Then he changed his behavior," Giana said.

If you're confused by all these letters and numbers, you can buy The Pet Engineer's book. Then, if you're still confused, change your name and see if that doesn't clear everything up.
