Paul Anka

This is my rat.

Her name is Paul Anka.

Yes it's a she, named after a he. ;)

Paul Anka is the name of the dog on Gilmore Girls, which is where I got the name. However, here is what Wikipedia says about Paul Anka:

"Paul Anka is a Canadian singer/songwriter of Lebanese origin. He became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1990.

Anka first became famous as a teen idol in the last 1950's and 1960's with hit songs like 'Diana,' 'Lonely Boy,' and 'Put Your Head On My Shoulder.' He went on to write such well known music as the theme for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, Tom Jones' biggest hit 'She's A Lady,' and the English lyrics for Frank Sinatra's signature song 'My Way.'"

So I hope, through this clever naming of my rat (ha!), you have learned a little bit more pop culture history than you knew before. :D
