Pet names

Choosing a pet name can be just as challenging for pet owners as naming children is for parents. Many pet owners want a name that encompasses the animal’s personality and rolls off the tongue. Some names are gender-specific, while others are universal. If you need help naming that new bundle of fur or feathers, you may find some help by looking at the most popular pet names. Each year, Veterinary Pet Insurance releases its list of popular pet names.

For those who appreciate a little humor with their pets’ names, Nationwide Insurance listed a bulldog named McLoven the Stud Muffin and a kitty called Agent Jack Meower as 2016’s top Wacky Pet Names. Kanye Westie and Optimus Prime Rib were some other clever pooch names, while Shakespurr and Butch Catsidy made the list as funny feline monikers.

I guess my name, Lilly Bug and my brother’s name, Joel the Brave are rare names!
