I came across the cutest set of punny pet names. I wish I could remember where!

Some I remember:


For other pets:

[name]Betty[/name] Poop

And my all-time favorite pet pun:

[name]Love[/name] these, especially Fluff Daddy, [name]Mick[/name] Wagger, and Big Fang [name]Theory[/name]!

Any more entries, berries?

These are some of the best I’ve heard:
Ceefer - as in C for cat (and Deefer for a dog…)
[name]Tiger[/name] (very very appropriately named…!)
[name]Florentia[/name] and [name]Esmerelda[/name] - a pair of purebred Persian sisters!!!

Our cats are named Aslan and Kaplan. My husband lived in Istanbul for a year, and those are the Turkish words for lion and tiger.

My all-time favorites from friends:

Bumper (named because the kitten was found stuck in a bumper-- my friend had to remove the bumper to get the cat out)
Woebe (Short for ‘Woe Betides Me, Nobody Loves Me’-- picture a very fluffy cat laying across the stairs with one paw over her face)
Alley (as in Alley [name]Cat[/name])

I was always more predictable-- [name]Louis[/name], [name]Izzy[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Lottie[/name] and [name]Coco[/name] are my kitties

My dad has called every male cat I ever had ‘[name]Tom[/name]’

Not that they are the best cat names alone, but I love my husbands and my cats names as a group.

[name]Jackson[/name] n.n. [name]Jack[/name] [name]Jack[/name] by 2 year old step-daughter.

They are all names after guitars. :slight_smile:

Single cats I have had:

[name]Little[/name] Orphan [name]Annie[/name] “[name]Annie[/name]”
Spooky–so named because when I first got her, she hid in my closet for the first week straight
[name]Tempest[/name]–because she looked like she had a storm going on in her coat
Fantasma “Taz” or “Tazzy girl”–her full name means “ghost” in a couple of different languages. I named her this because I found her close to Halloween, and also because I was madly in love with a guy whose nickname was “The [name]Silver[/name] Ghost Samurai”


Kitten sets:
[name]Kalee[/name], [name]Leo[/name], and [name]April[/name]–I did not name any of these kittens even though they were my cats. [name]Leo[/name] and [name]April[/name] were kind of named with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in mind. We found out later that [name]April[/name] was actually a boy, but by that time, the cat was already used to his name.
Snowball, M&M and PB&J–my dad named these guys, all after popular snacks.
[name]Buffy[/name], [name]Willow[/name], [name]Angel[/name], [name]Xander[/name], and Spike–born, of course, during my [name]Buffy[/name]-loving days. [name]Buffy[/name], [name]Xander[/name], and Spike all went to other homes, and [name]Willow[/name] and [name]Angel[/name] were renamed by people who were orginally going to keep them but then gave them back. They became Tweety and [name]Nicholas[/name], respectively.
[name]Liberty[/name], [name]Bell[/name], [name]Justice[/name], [name]Curtis[/name], and (can’t remember the fifth one’s name)–born on the Fourth of [name]July[/name]
Phantom, [name]Shadow[/name], [name]Spirit[/name], Banshee, Spectra, and Kusinagi–Tazzy’s girl’s babies. All are ghost-related names
[name]Xena[/name], [name]Gabrielle[/name], [name]Calisto[/name], and Joxler–the only show I could think of that typically had three girls and a boy was [name]Xena[/name]

[name]Midnight[/name] Thunder - My sister picked it.

Let’s see if I can hopefully not get too carried away. xD I really like [name]Irving[/name], [name]Tempest[/name], Fantasma, [name]Florentia[/name], [name]Esmerelda[/name], [name]Agnes[/name], Isabeaux, and [name]Little[/name] Orphan [name]Annie[/name] “[name]Annie[/name]”. xD So darling.

Phantasmagoria (unisex)
[name]Annabel[/name] [name]Lee[/name] “[name]Annabel[/name], [name]Anna[/name], [name]Ann[/name]/em [name]Annie[/name]”
[name]Tea[/name] (pronounced tee)
[name]Georgiana[/name] (jor-jane-uh)

[name]Marilyn[/name] (after [name]Manson[/name], at that.)
[name]Vivien[/name]/ [name]Vivian[/name]
[name]Salem[/name] (unisex)

and lots more. ^^

Well, I think my cat’s name is far and away the best cat name ever:
Miss [name]Trixie[/name], she’s mainly just called [name]Trixie[/name].

For boy cats, I really like [name]George[/name]. I don’t know why.

Although you didn’t ask for the worst, I feel like putting them down.
When my mom was a child, she had two cats named:
Sad Sack and Mama [name]Kitty[/name].
Those will forver make me laugh.

[name]Sergeant[/name] [name]Pepper[/name] is a great name for a black male kitty!

For whatever reason I think [name]Moses[/name] for a little gray cat is sooo cute!

Some of my favorite kitties I’ve had:

[name]Clarabelle[/name]- a very friendly stray tuxedo kitty that stayed for a while.
[name]Cyril[/name]- accidentally gave her this name because I thought she was a boy.
Mouse- was a gray kitty.
Wonder- perfect name for his personality.
Gatorade- called her ‘Gator’ for short.
Ichigo, Rukia, and Momo- because I had been really into an anime show and those were some characters I liked.
[name]Bob[/name] and [name]Tom[/name]- I named them for the radio personalities, and because my mom told me the names I gave animals were too ‘weird’ for her. Then she found out why I gave them those names, and insisted that radio show was rude and distasteful and started calling them [name]Tom[/name] and [name]Jerry[/name] instead.
Graycie- for a while I just called her [name]Gray[/name] because that’s what color she is. It just evolved into Graycie.

Cats I’ve had:

[name]Cleopatra[/name] ([name]Cleo[/name])

[name_m]How[/name_m] I would name my cats:

[name_f]Odette[/name_f]: named after the White Swan in Swan [name_u]Lake[/name_u] (the ballet).
[name_m]Toulouse[/name_m]: named after the [name_m]French[/name_m] city.

Odilon (nn Odil): named after a character in a comic strip that I used to read as a kid.
Jérôme: named after a character in the same comic strip.
[name_m]Titus[/name_m]: named after the [name_m]Roman[/name_m] Emperor

[name_f]My[/name_f] mother’s friends have two cats called [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] and [name_f]Lola[/name_f], and I’ve always thought that’s so adorable. Other cat names that I’ve come across which I love are:


[name_f]My[/name_f] husband is allergic to cats, so we can never have one. But we did come up with a list of imaginary cat names, many years ago. All of the names are items from menus in various restaurants in Los [name_f]Angeles[/name_f]:

  1. [name_m]Fish[/name_m] Ball Squid [name_m]Fish[/name_m] Cakes ([name_m]Fish[/name_m] Ball for short)

  2. Taco No Meat

  3. Avocado Frittata

That’s all I can remember, anyhow!
