VPI's List Of Unusual Cat Names

Whenever I see a list of unusual cat names, I often expect some type of reference to bodily functions, a Cleopatra variation, a Chairman Meow reference, and other plays on words.

Well, this year's VPI top 10 was missing some of my favorite word games, although the combined cat and dog list covered much of it.

My favorite in the list? Purr Diem. Chairman Meow is a close second and is one of my all time favorites (a name made famous in the television show, Psych). And, you gotta love Optimus Pants, Transformers fan or not. Noticeably absent? Catzilla.

I've included both the cat and the dog top 10 list below. You can see the entire top 50 wackiest pet names at the VPI site.

Looking for a name for your new cat? Well, if you haven't found a favorite yet, you might try the book: 5001 Names for Cats by Stephen Baker, which has some very unusual names.

Veterinary Pet Insurance was founded in 1980, and has sold over one million policies. Policies are available in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The pet names on this list come from their database of policy holders.
