I've noticed that there are a lot of random name generators charts. They can be quite fun. They can also become a reading challenge!

Here's the name generator that inspired this monthly challenge, Exploding Kittens.
Create a new name for a pet. It can be your animal or someone else's. Read a book that
is somehow associated with that new name. It's as easy as that :)

You can read more than one book for your new name, or you can go back and create a bunch of new names and read books for those names. It's your decision. Just have fun!

No page limit.
Re-reads and audio books are okay.
Be sure to date and rate your book.

This is definitely the hardest name generator I used. Folks will need to be creative or maybe think 'out of the box'.
