Old pet names for summoning

My pets used to have short names for easy summoning, but now many of them have double the name length.
How about allow us to summon them based on their name before the "+" too.
For example: "Summon Cat!" will summon "Cat+Alexina"
For conflicts in pet names I'm not 100% sure. Maybe the first pet with that name on the pets list? Of course the user can be more specific with adding the +tag.

    I feel like this would work except for the few people who had multiple characters and pets on the same account. If I have cat+mari and cat+ruairi, what cat gets summoned? Having the command do a second search for creation date or something seems simple enough but honestly too much work for them.

    I wish there was a way we could get rid of the stupid +server tags, they're ugly on characters and on pets and worse for people who have them on their characters and pets together lol I just don't see a solution that's easy enough for them to implement :(

    I like how OP uses example of +alexina, which literally doesn't exist.

    I always found it easier to link my pets to a hotkey or the left hand tabs instead. As for the +server names, I know they're working on name change coupons for us but I don't know what's going on with the pets. All of my characters are +server but I got lucky with my obnoxiously long pet names and they're safe from the name plague.

    I like that idea. As you said, "summon petname!" should work without the +server if there's no ambiguity. If there is ambiguity, just have it fail and give a message like "more than one of your pets have this name, please specify the server as well."
