Today I met a dog called 'Batman'!
Apparently the kids named him grin
What's the funniest dog name you have come across?!

I like people names for dogs. Not dog names for people though.

I was seriously considering 'Batfink' for our SBT. When she gives you her belly her ears flap back and all I have going through my head is 'My wings are like a shield of steel'. I need a life don't I?!

I am getting a bit bored of the human names. Batman is great.

I love human names on pets - so cute smile
Our cat ended up being called Ray because he's a stray and DH in all his creative wisdom thought Ray the Stray was magnificent.

I don't like it. I want to call him Sam. Or Barry.

DDog3 has a human name (not very common, a shortened version of a fairly well known name) but answers beautifully to "Pig"
It stemmed from the fact that she snores and snuffles like a small pig and just seems to have stuck. The sadness is that her name was actually the name I would have used for a DD if I had one. Once it became apparent we wouldn't have any more children I decided to use it anyway and now everybody ignores it- even people in the village call her Pig <pouts>

Ah, I love the name Pig! I also met a dog called Reg this morning. We have just moved to the area so I wonder what others are going to pop up grin

MrsFox - My 13 week old is called Pigi smile
The rescue lady named her, we wanted to change it but she answered brilliantly to it when we got her - so Pigi stayed.
It suits her, greedy little gannet that she is smile

I've known brothers called Benson and Hedges.
Dog.
Woof - woof had a cat brother called Mieow.

Dad's boyfriends dog is called Nigel.he's only a puppy - a collie- so I'm hoping he will grow into it!

The dogs owned by friends, acquaintances and relations include -

Mouse the Greyhound. Monkey the crossbreed. Ralph the pug and another who was a Golden Retriever. Lady Antonia Fraser the Afghan Hound (known as Antonia to her friends!). Fish the German Shepherd.

My Labrador is often called by her full name - Lillian - when being particularly daft.
