VPI’s 10 Wackiest Pet Names

In Just for Fun on June 18, 2009 at 9:53 pm

Naming their pets is a rough hoop to jump for a lot of animal guardians. Where do you start? Name them based on personality, looks, size? Well, the Veterinary Pet Insurance Company (VPI) released the Top 10 Most Unusual Dog and Cat Names for 2009—the second year they’ve voted. For dogs, you can’t get much cuter than Bam-Bam Noodle Butt or Inspector Foo Foo (numbers 6 and 10 on the list) or more original than Angus Sir Loin (number 5).

And for cats—or any animal, for that matter—classic spins on celebrity names like Velvet Elvis or Eartha Kitty, which came in second and third, could be a great four-legged conversation starter.

So, next time you’re thinking of naming your pet something like I Am Sparticus or Polly Prissypants, well, why bother to think again? You might make the next wackiest pet names list.
