I didn't get the correlation until now, but my fiancée named the other boy Lucky. He died only a few hours after being born. I'll try not to make any tasteless jokes about the eerie parallels there between that puppy and Lucky Cannon.
Wrestlers, no. I tend to name them after some of my favourite fictional characters though. I have Marvel Comics turtles, called Gambit and Mysterio. We called our budgies Buffy and Angel. Angel died, but Buffy's still here... and male, apparently
My brother named his bearded dragon Evan after Evan Tanner's awesome beard though.
