Animals living with the Selkie fall into two major categories, ainmnithe, meaning named, and anaithnid, meaning unnamed.

Named animals are companions, Selkie and pets, those lads and lassies handed to petting zoos and gifted to other people or taken by oneself, becoming members of the families. Livestock is usually unnamed, as this makes it easier to use the animal for taking part in the economic process.
