Worst Cat Names Ever

Worst. Cat. Names. Ever.

I came across a compiled list of "real" cat names that pretty much take the cake for worst ever. I got a chuckle reading through, just cause some of them are just that bad. I can't say that I was the best pet namer as a youngster, but at least I didn't name our family cat "Scaredy." That's right, as in Scaredy-Cat.

Although I don't necessarily agree with the order (I think Buzlingtonian Gingerbits should've at least made the top five), and some of them seem a wee bit fake (c'mon - Susie Sex Change, for real?), take a look at the top ten worst cat names anyway and tell me if you've heard of any real life kitty names that should have made the list!

  1. Swimmer
  2. Ducttape
  3. ChewToy
  4. Eucalyptus
  5. Balls
  6. Spayed
  7. Big Bad Baby Bentley Billy Joe Bob
  8. Cocaine
  9. Fattie
  10. Chicken Head Nose Face Fluffy Butt

Check out the rest of the list here, and tell me about the worst cat names you've ever heard in the comments below!

"Taco Bill Fish" was our cats name. 3 kids all picked 1 name and we combined them.

Aack! My cat growing up was named Fats! Who knew my poor baby had one of the worst cat names ever?!? (She definitely earned it, though!). Her sister's name was Motorboat because she was a purring monster, which I always thought was a great cat name. I also have a cousin who's cat is named Decimal (she was from a whole litter of "math cats") and a friend who's cat is named Chicken Corn (long story). And sader04, my cousin's dog is named Kitty, so maybe we should get them together?

My Sister's cat Beano takes the cake. As in the anti-gas product. Because the cat farts when it's scared. And she makes fun of my kitties: Persephone (goddess of the underworld[but only half the year]) and Dakini (a Japanese mischief fairy).

Number 11, Scat, my sons initials. I think he'll find this one funny. There are without a doubt some funny names on there. My daughter had a black cat some years back she named Pothole. Because she found the cat in a parking lot sitting in a pothole...LOL

Poor Kitties...... We adopted our cat and the previous owner named him UD short for Ugly Duckling. But he isn't ugly at all he is very handsome. So we tried calling him a bunch of other differnt names but nothing stuck so we still call him Ud or Udster but it no long has the same meaning.

Ha, some of these names crack me up! My sister and I named our first cat "Bubble Gum" when we were little because her nose was pink. After she passed away, my sister got another cat and named him Macavity after the evil cat from the musical "Cats". And then I got a cat and named him Eliot after T.S. Eliot (who wrote the "Cats" poems). When I worked as a vet assistant, we had a lot of people who named their cats "Cat", which I hated. One client we had named her Westie terrier "Westie" and her Manx cat "Manx". Gee, get a creativity gene, woman!

Oh fudge I totally forgot the love of my life, my last cat. MY calico who saved me from deep depression. Her name was Libby-Bitch-Cat-From-Hell. Yup that was her official name that what it says on the Vets paper work and on her tags. But the name Libby came from my love of Libby brand Peaches and the fact that my beautiful Calico have gorgeous orange sections the color of summer peaches on her. When I saw her the first thing that popped in my head was the jingle from the commercial for Libby's Peaches. "Libbys Libbys Libbys on the label label label you will like it like it like it on your table table table." The Bitch-Cat-From-Hell part came from the fact that she was extremely feral and hateful of all human when I got her at 9 weeks old. I think the kids of the women who had her tortured her.

Oh yeah my first cat was named Ralph. Ralph was a female and she named herself because of her distinctive meow "RAAAALLLLPPH!" My second cat was named Hope after the character Hope on Days of Our Lives then I took "hope" to the Vet and found out Hope was a boy so Hope's name was officially changed to CAT. And he only responded to the name CAT. People would ask me what's your cat's name? His name is CAT and he likes it. The little neighbors girls kidnapped CAT and tried to rename him Pookie but he rebelled and scratched them and came home to me and return to the wonderful name of CAT.

Personally I LOVE the wacky cat names. However in my family at least between my sister, her sons and myself we opt to name our cat's with human names. Because cats are so independent and human-like. Now for our dogs - aha - our family has decided to go crazy. We had Kipper, Bandit, Rico (as in Puerto Rico)and Pokie (as in Gumby and Pokie). I tried to convince my sister to keep the name my nephews and I came up with for Nike. We originally named her "Pair of Pants". POP for short. Then we were going to get a second companion dog for "Pair of Pants" and name it "Bag of Chips". My brother in law who had a AKC registered Dobie name "Pandemonium Mayhem Denise" approved of the wacky names. My sister thought it was stupid so she named the dog Nike after the Greek goddess of victory but strangers think that we named the damn dog after a tennis shoe company - one we don't like at that. So next dog as a play on Nike will be named ADIDAS or New Balance. My first dog by myself was named Tucker (after the car manufacturer) but often time he would misbehave since he was an untrained puppy and end up being called "F*cker" - my neighbors actually thought that his name was F*cker until I showed them his tags that said Tucker. I wanted to name my second dog Aurora Borealis, but since my sister gave my the puppy she poo-pooed the idea and her named ended up Iris after the matriarch on a soap opera I grew up watching. You name your companion whatever you want - funny or serious. Most of the time I call my girls by nicknames instead of their real names. One is Babykins (Chloe) and the other is Bubby (Ursula).

LOL @ melissafouch. My cat's name is Twinkie :) I named him that because he's orange and white and he's our first boy cat so we wanted to give him the most fruity name. Our previous cats have been Nala, Ollie, and Cookie. And my dog's name is Tiny. She's about 9 pounds so I guess it's appropriate... but she was already named that when we adopted her. The previous owner couldn't speak much english and when she bought her one of the only words she knew was tiny. Also, my first pet was a fish named Fishy. I was 6 and I guess I wasn't very creative.

My neighbor's cat's name was Puppy. Talk about giving it a complex!

Even if some of the names were made up for the sake of the list, chances are still high that someone named their pet that. Two cat names that stick out in my mind: Noname and my partners childhood cat's name, Ubefound. My favorite cat name? My childhood cat, Fishhead.

We had a cat named Sneakers, then named any gray striped cat we got/adopted/found/saw Sneakers. All orange and white cats were named Buttons. We weren't very creative namers as kids. Now my pupy's name is Ladybird, after the bloodhound on King of the Hill, but her full name is Ich Habe Ein Kus Von Du (spelling may not be spot on, but it's German for "I have a kiss for you" - she's a dachshund (which is actually German for "Badger Dog", so we found it appropriate)/
