Aw, dear Rooney & I know what you mean about the names. We do them all, with our pets & with our humans! I was at the bookstore yesterday & Phil Goodstein came by (author of all the Denver/Park Hill history books) & I told him about your history of Rooney's name & Alexander Rooney. He loved hearing about it & took note of the name. Serendipity! And Happy Easter, Carol!

Love this! All of our animals have long lists of "also know as" -es!

So fun! My favorite, Rooney Roo, since grandson Robby's nickname is Robby Roo. I love nicknames and Rooney has so many great ones.
