Awwdorably Funny Names Given To Pets

Giving a name to your pet is something sacred. It is like naming a child. It's the name you'll be using when you ask them "who's an adorable little baby?", it's the name you'll be yelling when they inevitably do something that they know they're not supposed to do. The name must be chosen with care and with the future in mind... 

Oh, we're kidding, the best pet names are the silliest ones. There is nothing funnier than walking your dog outside and yelling "Beef Stroganoff, don't eat that!" It's perfect. And apparently, our lovely Facebook users have given some of the silliest (strangely food-related) names to their pets, and we just had to share our favorite ones with you.

Viral Tweets Of Funny Names Given To Cats

We, cat owners, know that our cats are majestic beings. They are descendants of great, dangerous, glorious felines. So, of course, we make sure to treat them in a way that is appropriate

We present them with water, food, snacks. We pet them when they want it and get scratched when they don't. But the first thing we do to show our royal cats the respect that they deserve is give them a name - the most regal and majestic- okay, fine, we call them the dumbest things sometimes. 

Beef Stroganoff, Green Bean Casserole, Meowgan Freeman. They're all beautiful, regal and absolutely hilarious.

Dogs are the best. They are simple the best. They come when you call them, they always have the best intentions (even when they're hooligan weirdos), and they want nothing more than to please you. So, what happens when they're already next to you and suddenly you're calling their name? 

This adorable pooch clearly wasn't ready for such an incredibly confusing test and absolutely couldn't understand why his owner apparently couldn't see him. He's confused, of course, but for us it's heartwarmingly entertaining. And when he gets all the scritches that he deserves at the end for being the bestest boy in the world, our hearts just about melt with joy.

Uncreative But Perfectly Accurate Names Given To Pets (Viral Tweets)

Choosing a name for your pet is not an easy task. It's the name that will stick with them for the rest of their lives, that'll make them come over when you say it (or totally ignore you when you say it if they're a cat). So, you wanna get that name decision right. Or not. 

A bunch of tweets that wet viral show that even the simplest, least inspired, least creative name can be a good one so long as its given by people who care about the pet. TC seems to be a name that people enjoy giving their cats, and guess what it stands for? The Cat. Yup. Simple, accurate, catchy and hidden in plain sight. You'll never suspect what it stands for unless you ask.

Giant Panda Cub Gets Named And Its A True 'Little Miracle'

We've an update about one of the most positive stories to come out of 2020, and the update is just as wholesome as the original story. The (tiny) giant panda cub that was born at the Smithsonian's National Zoo three weeks ago has finally gotten a name, and it is the most appropriate and cutest name of all. Xiao Qi Ji is his name in Chinese, but it translates to 'little miracle' in English. 

The little giant panda has gone absolutely viral in the past couple of weeks after a video of his miraculous birth was released by the zoo, and since the world fell in love with the cub, the zoo decided to let the world participate in naming him. Of course, the internet does not disappoint when it comes to baby animals. 

We were given a choice of 4 names, and after three weeks and nearly 135,000 votes that have been cast, the adorable name 'little miracle' was chosen. The long waiting period was not an accident, it is part of Chinese tradition to wait 100 days before naming the cub. We wish the little cub luck and prosperity, and for his mother, Mei Xiang, to have many more adorable healthy cubs in the future!

Strange Names Given To Pets Twitter Thread Goes Viral

We all have that one (/one hundred) weird name we call our pets. I call my cat "Bellybutton" sometimes, I don't know why or how it happened, but she gets it, the smart kitty. Well, apparently I'm not the only one who gives suuuper strange names to her adorable pets, and twitter has decided to prove it to me. 

It all started with one tweet by @eef_nestor that went viral that stated: "what I call my dog Spencer" followed by some of the most ridiculous names we've ever seen, names that put even my "Bellybutton" to shame. And twitter users jumped in, writing down their own ridiculous pet names with pictures to go with them, and a thread that started with one dog ended up an enormous thread with hundreds of replies that are all endlessly entertaining.

Strange Collective Nouns For Groups Of Animals

Ever find yourself not knowing the group noun for an animal? Happens to us nearly every day it seems. And while a majority of group names do have a basic underline understanding as to why they were named that... some names don't hold that obvious clarity. 

Actually some group names leave us feeling completely baffled. And some just seem like missed opportunities! Six years ago, there was a petition to change the group noun of Squid, which is Shoal, into the clearly superior option -- Squad. Seems like the petition worked

A group of bats is called either colony, camp, or our personal favorite -- cloud. There's so much to learn every day!

People Reveal How Their Pets’ Names Have Evolved

Over on Twitter @mooseallain got people thinking about what they called their pets vs what they REALLY call their pets. These poor pets had no idea what they were getting into when they came home to their forever homes, and they might have thought twice if they knew what the names they would get would be. At least some of the names are pretty original, though some seem to repeat themselves.... How many people can call their dog or cat boo or booboo until its just too. much. But no matter how creative these pet owners were with their companions' names, it pales in comparison to these unfortunate names for people that definitely has some malice behind it.
