Then the Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I shall make a partner suited to him." So from the earth he formed all the wild animals and all the birds of the air, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; whatever the man called each living creature, that would be its name. The man gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every wild animal; but for the man himself no suitable partner was found."

Genesis 2:18-20
