Pet Names

Pet Names


Cats And Dogs

With pet names you can set/create/change the names of pets! Never lose track of who's who again!

This is a stand-alone, light-weight plugin.


  • Set the name of your cat/dog
  • Use color codes in their names
  • Unlimited renaming
  • Multiple animals of same name (no conflictions)
  • Protection against other people naming your pets


Drag the file into your plugins folder and restart(or /reload) the server. You're done!

How to Use

Pet Names supports the use of color codes (without addition plugins)! For example, in the pet's name, use &1, &2, &3, &a, &b, &c, ect... to do different colors! (Read about it here)

Step 1. Type /petname followed by the desired name for your pet. Examples: /petname Scooby-Doo /petname &2Crystal /petname Fluffle Buffle

Step 2. Right click on your cat/dog.

Step 3. There is no step 3, you're done!

    Obsolete?? Nonononono.. This is faaar from obsolete. Everyone on my 1.7 server loves this plugin - Both because you can colour the names of your pets and because others can't rename them!

    Well, anyways, it still works. If you ever decide to update it, being able to name all mobs (Or at least the passive/neutral ones) would be amazing!

    &c, which should be a lighter red, makes the name green. Besides that, it seems to work perfectly well. Great plugin!

    Great work DanielSturk! I didn't realize someone else had made this plugin already. I made my own version with the ability to charge money to name your pet.

    Could you split up the permissions so that having colorization is a separate permission?

    Really like the plugin. Perfect Idea.

    permission for:

    • Colorcodes
    • Using the plugin at all

    and a config/command to be able to set a character limit for how long the name can be. 20 letters is alot... :P

    But a great plugin :D!
