23 People On Some Of The Worst Dog Names They’ve Ever Heard

"Bad" and "good" names are subjective...until you have to shout them across the dog park!

When it comes to naming pets, sometimes it’s easy and sometimes you struggle with it. Sometimes a joke name that seems like a good idea at the time, ends up haunting you later. We asked people what the worst dog name they’ve ever come across was and got some pretty hilarious answers!

This dog is sad because his name is just “dog”

1. Deogie/DiOhGee

The #1 theme in responses were multiple people who’d known dogs named  some variation of “dog”, whether it was in another language, or a phonetic spelling.

I knew a lady who’s friend named their dog Deogie as in the spelling for Dog” – Megan Silva Lucci
“I had a friend who had a deeogie and a seeaytee.” – Kristina Kolonko
 “I’ve actually also met a DiOhGi” – Rachel Romu
I had a friend name their dog Kelev. Which is Hebrew for dog. They literally named their dog, Dog.” – Tami Dacks
And one where they flipped that and reversed it:
I heard of a family who had named the dog – Cat, and the cat – Dog.” – Laura McLean

2. Askem/Asker

Strangely, multiple people had met Dogs (and cats!) named this.

I knew a dog named Askim. As in, ‘What’s your dog’s name?’, ‘Ask him.'” – Al Ridley

A guy at my parents trailer park named his dog “Askem” which apparently prompts people to ask the dog what his name is… apparently it’s ‘funny'” – Kimber Cranston

“I heard about a woman who named her dog “Asker.” As in ‘what’s your dog’s name?’ – Miriam Bernath


3. Sonic Shoelace

Ok, so the rest of these names are just weird one-offs, whereas the first two are the names of multiple dogs:

“When I was 6 and my brother was 5 we got to name our golden retriever. He picked Sonic (the hedgehog) and I picked Shoelace. So our dog’s name was ‘Sonic Shoelace’.” – Danielle Ranch


4. PoopDolla

My friend’s dog’s name is PoopDolla (poop dollar).” – Zane Banyan

19. Stupid

“My dad named our dog stupid, because he missed his old dog Brandy.
But then he fell in love with Stupid and had to deal with her name.
So it got shortened to Stoop… as in ‘come ‘ere Stoop’, or ‘how’s stoop doin’ these days?’ She was a very loved dog till the end of her days.” – Becky Milligan

As a kid we had a dog who would go out all day (we lived on a farm) and then sh!t on the kitchen floor as soon as he came in the house. His name was ‘SOONER.’ Meaning, ‘sooner sh!t on the floor then outside’ was his full name.” – Lyndsy Ballagh
