Named after our first (and only) cat me and my wife adopted when we moved in together.

A careless friend let him outside when they were house sitting for us, and we never found him. He was missing for 5 days before we got back and found out.

We had him for little more then 2 years, but we missed the little bugger too much to ever get another cat.

Mine is Lucy Lawless. I wanted an amazing Palico, and it worked!

I always suck at choosing names at the character creation stage. The more I think about something cool the less I come up with. First acceptable thing that popped in my mind.

Digit, after my first big, lovable dope of a cat.

[–]AnUnderwhelmingPie 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Mine's name is Roswell after my first cat. He was old and sweet and just the sweetest car I've ever known. He sadly passed a few years ago, but I've always missed him. When I found out I could design my Palico I immediately started going through pictures to try and find a picture of him. It's nice playing a game with Roswell at my side, like he used to curl up on my lap and sleep, but now fighting next to me. It's nice to see him again.

Dawg, i just love dogs

[–]WitchRolina -1 points0 points  (1 child)

My family had a dog that would only eat catfood - we figured she wanted to be a cat. Perhaps your Palico is the inverse, and aspires to doghood then? :D

Layla, because of my favorite song.

[–]Purveyor of InformationGamer3427 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mine is named Azzolmi, and her name is simply what I came up with years ago for my character's animal companion, (well, one of three names to be exact, but she's the main one). My palico's appearance though is based on the topaz carbuncle from Final Fantasy XIV, since I used the topaz carbuncle for a long time when I first picked up that game, and I used Azzolmi as my personal name for mine, (even though you can't technically name them in game)......

[–]Tacotek 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Squidge is his name. I named him after my cat.

[–]voids_raider 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]True GunlancerBatze-13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mine is called Helmish. It was the name of my very first Palico in MH: Generations and so i called my Palico that. He´s kind of derpy and a real troll, but i love the little Monstertrucker.

Dog because I’m not creative and I know a dog when I see one

[–]WitchRolina 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Character Name: Flora
Palico Name: Fawnya

Figured spelling it like that was like a kitty sort of way of spelling/saying Fauna. Technically a mix of Fauna, Paw, and the Japanese word for "meow". The word "meow" in and of itself just doesn't work with Fauna for the sake of cat puns.

[–]DiddyNine5 0 points1 point  (0 children)
