Terrible pet names

Where is the line drawn between whimsical and just fucking stupid when it comes to naming pets? Of course, most of us want unique names for our furry friends, and there's certainly nothing wrong with such old boring standards as Muffin, Bootsie, or Spot, although many pets have some pretty exotic names these days, such as Delilah, Oreo, and Quasar.

But there's a darker side to pet naming. I've met a pug named Wormy and a cat called Fester. These aren't nicknames that have been given to animals with regular names—these are their real names.

That said, most of us do have affectionate nicknames for our pets. Isis, my Siberian Husky (and she was named before the Middle Eastern…unpleasantness), is known around my house as Icy-juicy, Isitos, Isis-Catches-Mices, and Icicle.

Are there pet names that you simply couldn't believe—either proper names or nicknames? Please tell us.

I'll confess I gave my cat an odd name. I adopted him as a kitten but couldn't think of a name after several months. A friend suggested I name him "Don't Know" - probably tired of me talking about naming the cat. I took him up on his suggestion and gave him the name of Da'noh, because it sounded French. Once I made an appointment for him with the vet and the receptionist asked me the cat's name. When I said Da'noh she replied, "Don't you know his name?" Haha!

Da'noh is now almost 17 years old and couldn't imagine him having any other name.

SPCA Peggy was named by my partner, in honor of Marvel's Peggy Carter. Dax was also named by him. I suspect that he has a sort of crush on Dax Shepard.

A teenage neighbor girl volunteers at one of the area pet adoption centers. The center's dogs and cats are often featured as a public service by the local newspaper.

A veterinarian friend said that at her vet school, all animals referred to in classroom discussions were given the generic name of "Fluffy". If they were talking about dogs, it'd be "... now say that Fluffy comes in having eaten a bag of styrofoam peanuts...", of if they were talking about exotics they'd discuss Fluffy the llama of Fluffy the iguana.

My dogs tended to have multiple names. Goldbuck was usually called Bucky, Buckyboy, Buck, and so forth. He used to love to have his ears massaged. How many names can a dog understand? It’s almost like he could tell by the tone I used, if I was referring to him, and what I have in store for him.

It's also a charming name for a pig, R132.

"Show dog names are the worst. "

Oh no, show CAT names are even worse!

"Fluffbunny Sparklepants of Periwinkleglitter", the last being the name of the breeder's business.

The generic dog name is Japan, equivalent to "Fido" or "Rex," is "John." That's right: dogs are called "John." I thought about naming my dog John but it'd be too much trouble to explain. I also considered "Squirmy" but I thought I'd sound like an idiot. So I settled on "Tiger."

My first Alaskan Malamute rescue was named Petunia by her foster family because of her potent farts. I changed her name to Elvira and there was never a farting problem again.
