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!
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.
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:
“My friend’s dog’s name is PoopDolla (poop dollar).” – Zane Banyan
8. Poopy and…Nazi?!
10. Crabcake Benedictt
“I met a DotCom once.” – Kayla Mor
13. A plethora of weird names
15. Silly, Willy, Wonderful
16. A dog ironically named Daisy
17. The Teds
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
