Pet pet names

In my experience, I've found that bisyllabic pet names roll off the tongue the best. Monosyllabic names are cute (also look better on tags), but when calling aloud, one would have to do a sing-songy extension midway through or add an "-ie" sound at the end. With that said, pet pet names, however, should be as redonk as humanly possible.

Here are a few of Bel·la's:

  • Professor Lazybones
  • Renee Tailwagger
  • Sir Lix-a-Lot
  • Littlest one
  • Bellavator
  • Bellanator
  • Umbrella
  • Cowbell
  • Doggin
  • Furball
  • Kitten
  • Belly
  • Bells

What are your pets' pet names?


  1. Woofer. (What my Aussie love called him)
    Mister. ( when in trouble)
    Little H.
    Haydyno. (Hayden and Dyno combined)

    I like this game. We are such nerds.

    Your first 3 names are quite cleaver...

    This baby
    Kooks and dukes
    Parks and barks
    Oh my god (said in a really really high annoying voice)

  7. Word to the wise: Before naming any pet "Penny", be aware that you will have to endure:

    A. Answering the question, "Ohh, after the Beatles song? Or 'Almost Famous'?" a million times, and
    B. Telling your boyfriend NOT to refer to her as "Peenie" or "Peen". Talk about unflattering pet names, haha.

  8. Elmo: Mo, Moby, Mobius Strip, Mo' Money, Fat Boy, Guyliner

    Cookie Monster: Cook, Cooks, Cooksie, Cookers, Cookers Monsters, Cookery Monstery, Monsters lead such fascinating lives

  10. Tell us about that old photo... Where did you find it? Did you art it up? With a partner, I started a business for dog lovers -- Barkology. It all started with an old photo of a pit bull. I left Barkology years ago, but the business is still going strong and has great products.

Just a few(thousand) of my cat Oliver's aliases: Bandicoot/Bandicute, Pippy Lawn Droppings, Peter Rottentail, Lady Chatterley/Lady Chatterley's Litter, Senor Jose Gato Negro con Calcetines Blancos (Mr. Joe Black Cat with White Socks - well, now you can picture him in your mind), Sir Lix-a-Lot (just like Bella!), Pound Purry (remember those?), Cute-ifer, Talky McTalkerson, etc.
