This idea will probably get shot down, But how cool would it be to be able to name our animal companions? Like, On screen. Like I have my sky snake named Zhane and my batacuda named Jeffrey. But I want the names to be on screen. So, Whenever you get an animal companion, You can name it. Also, before I get my crocogator. What should I name him?

When I threw the artichoke heart, Zhane would go after it. So I put it on Kane's head. You might say that's impossible. But that's Zhane's dream every thursday

No, this isn't a bad idea, many witchdoctors have asked that their animal companions get names, some even do as you have done and give them names. The Hoodoo Master calls his skysnake - Genevive.
Its strange to me that the only animal companions with names are Tiburon, Madclaw, Nikita and Scorpius.

I thought Nikita was a special type of Skarakeet. And I appriciate you not mistaking Zhane's name for a typo He is actually named after the silver ranger from PRIS.

They have names because they are named when we encounter them. I think. Maybe KI just doesn't love the normal animal companions as well.

It would be very nice to have names available, so one isn't just saying "my batacuda" when everyone else can talk about "their" El Toro or "their" Subadai.

At least they improved them somewhat. Now they're good enough they deserve a proper name.

My witchdoctor hasn't gone beyond the "hey you" stage on her animal companions. Ooo, there's a name - Hai Yu!

Could you also fit me throwing the artichoke and Zhane going after it in that thread?
