This is a question Pet Names

I once knew a cat called Lenin. It got diarrhea so they renamed it Trotsky. Tell us the name of your pet - but only if you've got an amusing or interesting reason for it. Tiddles need not apply.

This question is now closed.

is the name of my Bearded Dragon. Dont ask, my dad thought of it after I suspect a full nights stone-up, and possibly some Mozart music aswell.

Heres a picture of a Bearded Dragon for all of you curious people :


He's very cute indeed, all he does is sit on his rock all day taking in the beams of his heat lamp, and occasionally (more around the summer time) he climbs up onto his bed (made of a cardboard box and wood coloured tape) and leaps across and around his vivarium for several hours. The damn crazy fool.

Ben Golly the cat
a retarded cross-eyes Burmese with a penchant for ankle-biting and scratching.

So named for the Morrissey lyric: "Ben Golly in platforms"

There was a well hard tom down the way called Rambo. We adopted an equally 'ard tom, which its previous owners had named him Tootsie, which was a stupid name. So we decided that an equal / rival to Rambo / Sly Stallone had to be Arnie. So that became his new, slightly more respectable name.

Gerbils and a guinea pig
My gerbils were called George, Spaghetti, and Tokyo and my guinea pig was called Olga. We named the gerbils using a book of names, a cook book and a map. The guinea pig I haven't a clue about.

My cats currently called Humphrey but now he only answers to 'Humpadink, humpalot or sir humph'. Bloody 21 year old sisters. Damn them!!!!

A few odd ones...
We deal with rescue cats a lot, we foster them. The shelter has one heck of a hard time coming up with names, sometimes. The current resident is named B'Ellanah. She was found living rough in a field with her sister, who was named Naomi.

Our first cat, after he adopted us, we had to see what his personality was before we could name him. Unfortunately, by the time we had found out that he had very little personality, he would answer only to "Cat". So he became Catbert. Turns out he was a stray and had to be returned to his owner, who had named him "Kuma".

My kid brother owned two rats, Luther and Zwingly.

My mother used to have a dog named Nondescript White Mutt, called Nonny.

Edit: Forgot to mention: the dog before Nonny was a poodle named Humbug. So named, apparently, because she arrived near Christmas, and with her not yet being housebroken, we spent a lot of time looking at the soles of our feet and saying, "Bah! Humbug!"

I had two female gerbils...
..in my late teens. I can't remember what I called them originally, but after observing that they enjoyed some energetic girl-on-girl action I named them Dirty Gertie and Prudy Trudie. I thought it was hysterical at the vets, hearing the receptioinst call out their names.

My friend
had a cat named Taxi. Her dad had thought it would be amusing to stand at the end of the drive and shout "Taxi!"

Plus someone at school told me that when she was little her family got two kittens. They were named Starsky and Hutch. Almost immediately poor Starsky was run over by a car, thus leaving them for years and years with a cat oddly named Hutch.

3 of 'em
First off my wife had a tortoise called Speedy. He was found at the top of a hill and kept trying to run away. He'd take a run-up, drop at the last moment to slide under a four inch gap under the gate. Usually found in the phone box a few yards away.
We had a dwarf rabbit called Dizzy. Because he would just spin like a top all the time.
We also had a dog called Ziggy. No amusing story but he was fucking great that dog. Called him Zigmund when in trouble, liked to wear a bow tie and would do anything you were thinking of when you said 'Stick'.

We Had A rabbit.
It was called Nero, coz it slept with its mother and kicked any other animal in its vicinity out of its teritory. Quite a sick little animal actually.

The Cat With No Name
When I was about six I found a cat in the woods near my house. It was a Calico cat, so that's what we named it. After about two weeks, we decided that that was stupid, so we named it Kitty. Of course, the damn thing eventually ballooned up to about 20 pounds, so we said the hell with it, we'll call it Cat.

Of course, we felt that was a bit redundant, so in the end we just called it "fatass" or "thunderthighs" or "Goddammit, quit pissing on the rug".

We had to put it to sleep because of the pissing, but not before we were forced to rip up the rug and lay tile in my room because apparently that's where the cat felt most at home.

and another one
as I'm too lazy to edit...

I once had a guinea pig called Squeakaboo - on account of his peculiar habit of squeaking wildly while hiding round the corner of his hutch...later, we got another guinea pig and named it SqueakabooTwo, as it looked just like Squeaky.
And my cat is called Kobblaar...our guard named her, thinking it was a boy - my mum found her on a Thursday, and Kobblaar is Gharnain for Thursday...but I found it was a girl - handily we can now tell people its Arabic for kisses...I have no idea how its spelt.
My dads dogs are called Kuki (fuck knows, his wife named it) and Jozi (named by his wife, after Johannesburg, where the dog was from), who answers to Stupid, thanks to me and my brother. She also answers to Fuckwit and Retard.

My old cat
My old cat was called tappits because my parents found it in that part of the car engine, it had managed to get in there without the knowledge of my parents and when they got home they could hear a meowing from inside they opened the bonet and there was a cat, we had never seen that cat before in our lives but we kept it anyway. (my dad wanted to get another and call it "Pistons" but the family politely declined.)

My mother tells a story about a cat named Midnight she had growing up. A neighbor called to say he'd been hit by a car.

They went down to get the corpse, and it was gone. A few days later my grandfather found it in their garage, hiding behind a wheelbarrow. The vet said it was a goner, but my grandmother nursed it back to life feeding it eggs through an eye dropper. It's face was permenantly squashed, though, so Midnight became Pancake.

cats and dogs and fish
When we were kids, me and my brother named the cat "Graham". In honour of Graham Chapman for some reason.

My pets these days all have alcohol-realted names for some reason - Keg and Bud the cats, Sapphy (Bombay Sapphire) the dog, Midori the fish.

when i was on work experience at a vet surgery
not very long ago, there were two cats in the hospital for the long-run...they were called Cat 1 and Cat 2 by thier owner, who believed that as they wouldn't answer why give them names? Part of the problem was, nobody knew which one was Cat 1 and which was Cat 2.
Anyway, one of these cats was as old as the dinosaurs, approximately, and had every disease under the sun, but the most obvious were liver failure (making it very, very scrawny) and ringworm (making it bald in patches - not good on a black cat). We called him Prince Charming.
His mate, who was only in the hospital to keep Prince Charming company, was massively obese, mainly because he'd eat anything. We called him Fatso, Fat Cat or The Pig.
I apologise for the lenght of that

Not so much a name
but a lack of one.

We had the usual household arguements over what to call our new kitten, but we kinda got bored of argueing, and eventually, the cat was simply refered to as the cat. We gave him away to someone when he was 5 as we were moving, and they named him Tigger. How fucking typical.

Why? Who knows:
I had a big white pet rabbit with red eyes named Woo (not WOO YAY!). We called him Sir Woopers, Boony, etc. We also had a smaller black and white one called Poo. There were others: Tyrone and Juanita. Juanita had a tattoo in her ear and tended to eat her young. eeew. That was enough rabbits.

My nan
used to have goldfish. I only use the "plural" as they were frequently having to be replaced. Once a fortnight, without fail, Goldfish would float to the top of the tank. We ended up referring to them numerically as "number 16" or "the fish", poor unloved bastards...
turned out the dosy old bat thought that whilst cleaning out the bowl, it was ok to just dump the fish under a running tap, ala dolphins.... though that would have to be a big fuckin tap....
