How did Momo get her Name?

We regularly get asked about Momo's name - have you ever wondered how she got it?


No, she's not named after the Avatar: The Last Airbender series. But we did love the show (and kind of liked the movie).


And yes, Momo does mean "peach" in Japanese. While Momo is super fuzzy and sweet, that's not how she got her name either.

To be honest, her name is a hybrid of what we originally had in mind. You see, we love the Madagascar movies and and one of our favorite scenes involves a chunky hippopotamus named, Moto Moto. We originally were planning on naming a new boy pug Moto Moto, but little miss Momo stole our hearts... so we decided to change the name a little bit so that it just sounded girlier. We think it fits her perfectly.
