There was a baseball player in my childhood named Amos Otis. I liked the name. (Plus he had muttonchops.) When I called my dog Lula I thought it was maybe okay I was partly naming her after Lula da Silva cuz I didn't use his whole name. But calling this guy Amos Otis Chompsky--- would that be being disrespectful to 2 people? Is it an honor to have a pet named after you, or is it, under certain circumstances, not? We're talkin' about an animal, and one I think condescending things like "goofus-boofus" at.
Amos Otis is still alive, but he doesn't have a twitter account.
If you say Amos Otis without a pause, it sounds like "Amusottus". That sounds biblical. Or "a musotus", which would be a thing with a Latin-y name. But it isn't. In Italy sometime between 1501 and 1700 (that's the best they can do??) a bronze medallion was struck to honor Ulysseo Musotus, who was a Musotus.
I read some place a long time ago, when I had my first cat, Chester K. Pester (Chet the Pet), that cats like names with "s"es in them. Don't know whether there was a lick of science involved. Or a bitey-bite, as the case may be.
