Dog House Blog, It’s All In The Name!

Molly The Wally Paws For Thought!

Molly The Wally Brings You The Top 20 weird names animal lovers give to their pets.

Toe-Jam and Pickywickywoowoo are among the 20 most bizarre names that owners have given their pets a recent survey has revealed. Battersea Dogs & Cats Home compiled the list after asking 225,000 facebook and twitter fans to put forward their weird names which were then voted on. Last years’ most popular pet name was Charlie. It seems that it is now the fashion to name your pet with ever more outlandish names. Dog names ranged from the embarrassing to the weird, such as Toe-Jam, Chicken-Fish and Towpath Tidy. Cats' names are as bad with Princess Maisie Dolores, Strawberry Surprise, and Mister Fuzzy Mittens. Just remember when you name your pet you may need to shout it out in the garden or at the park. Imagine, Doobywotsists come back here! With 9,000 dogs and cats coming in every year the staff themselves have to come up with unusual names for their new arrivals. They have to be quite imaginative but maybe not as imaginative as these.

  2. Yum Yum? Too good. Have a great day Molly!

  3. We would have to walk around with a bag over our heads if we had any of those names!

  4. I can't imagine many bipeds wanting to call some of those names at the park!

  5. Molly I'm filing papers to change my name to either Bootlebumtrinket Mom says she could call me Bottle, Bum or Trinket...depedning on her mood. I'm also partial to Strawberry Surprise.

  6. Those are werid for sure. I have heard peeps say that my name is werid. But I like my name. Better than others I can think of.

  8. Haha good stuff today. If we get another dog might have to consider the name Toe-Jam.....

    Congrats on your award!

  9. Poor embarrassed he (or she?) must be when he's hanging at the park with his pals and his hoomins start calling him...You can just picture him, tail and ears down, slinking away...or practicing selective deafness...whatever were they thinking?

    For Share It Sunday I choose this post:

  12. hahaha OMD, ROFB!!! I know a dog with the name: fly-me-to-the-moon-and-back that's NO joke. I'm afraid if he would run away from home he will be already in Timbuktu till his mom ended to call his name... Thanks for the shortcodes ...

  13. Molly those are all such funny names. My mom is more taken by the knitting you are laying on. Is you mum knitting you a sweater or possible a special blankie?


  14. I've seen some pretty weird names. I also have a weird one for Shiner that I've used before. I'm a little embarrassed to admit it but I'll give you a hint... not much rhymes with Shiner so I got creative. "Shiner with the fat v------" lol

  15. Poor pets with such strange names! Makes you wonder about their people!

  17. Those are really strange names! Imagine what the neighbors must think when theynhear someone yelling for Toe Jam!

  18. Oh, how funny! How would you ever say some of those in time?

  19. We are glad our mom didn't look at that list before she named us, we could have ended up with some weirdo names!! We love your picture!!

  23. OMD, IMFO, those abbreviations are FOBL funny! Gotta go 'cause HAW!

  24. "FOBL"! Ha roo roo roo! I hadn't heard that one before! I love it!

  38. OMD, those are the silliest names, but who are we to laugh - who ever heard of naming two of your dogs Thunder and Lightning, especially when you live in a part of our country that is plagued with bad thunderstorms? Silly humans.

    Thanks for the very spot-on horoscope.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  39. TW's neighbor used to have a cat named—heh heh—Babydoll Loverboy and every night she used to stand in the yard calling his name.

  40. This makes me like my name a lot more. I might be embarrassed to answer to some of those. Mommy does have some pretty weird nicknames for me though.

    Loveys Sasha

  41. I can't imagine giving such an outlandish name to an animal. But then some people are just as bad with their children! LOL

  42. Those names sure are out there!! I like the Westminster Dog's name Banana Joe!! :)

    I like my name and my official name is Joe Cool, which I think is, well of course, cool!! Tee Hee

    I hope you're having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  43. Hi Molly, personally if me owner gave me such a stupid name like laladipsy fut coat i would bite the hand that feds!

  44. I am thinking there are many people who have wayyyy too many beers prior to naming their dogs and cats.
