OK, we somehow missed the vote, but we ain’t gonna miss the boat on delivering the news of what has to be the best name game EVER! The folks over at Veterinary Pet Insurance compiled this completely awesome list of pet names, then ranked the top 50 based on popular vote, and voila! The 2014 Complete List of Wacky VPI Pet Names! They even went so far as to post pictures and bios of the top ten – we couldn’t resist!
And honestly, who doesn’t love a list, right? But with names like Rocko The Porkchop, Vienna Beef, and Brutus Pancakes not among the ten “wackiest”, how creative do you have to be to conjure up a dog’s name that’s clever enough crack the single digits?! Well, you’d be surprised! Here’s the inspiration behind number ten on the list:
“My husband-to-be and I were having fun on a date when he got up from a chair he was sitting in and just blurted out, ‘Oh my God, I have waffle dots on my back,’” explained Audry. “We laughed so hard and decided right there we would one day get a dog and name it that. The name fits him perfectly and we never considered any other name.”
Sometimes inspiration just strikes in the most unassuming places. So enough with the words. Here’s the top ten, with links to their pictures and quickie backstories. Enjoy!
10. Waffle Dots
And, yes, there’s a list of outrageous cat names, too, if you’re so inclined. But a word of caution: the 2014 Complete List of Wacky VPI Pet Names should NOT be used as a source to find a “pet name” for your significant other. We’re just not convinced “Mindy Fluffer Nutter” or “Beaudacious Maximus” is going to score you any points!
