I find those names boring. Im also not keen on calling animals common human names as it can lead to some awkward situations, I once had a girlfriend and a horse who shared the same name.

My current dog is called Madoc btw.

~Lmao, sorry about your girl and your horse sharing the same name.....kinda funny..sorry, but I can laugh about now, right??
I mean, you did say "I once had".....
And your choice for your dog's name now is very unique, I like it!!!

It was a long time ago but it was funny then too, confusing at times but funny. I didnt mind but I did feel she held a little resentment towards that horse(& me).

Its also a play on words and the kids in the village call him Mad Dog .....which is apt as he is.

It's not me, it's you.

Yep, my dog has the number 1 popular name. The breeders had named his sire Alexander the Great. I wanted to keep in line with the Roman theme, so I named him Maximus "Max" Lucius, which means great light. I thought it fit him well, as he is a yellow lab.

And in the years that followed after giving him that name, he's certainly been a great light to me.

Our dogs are called Zara and Lucy.
They both still have the names they came with.

We tried new names with Zara but the only one we (and Zara) thought she suited was Sally, which is the name of my Mother's almost identical looking dog. So obviously no.

We got Lucy a couple of years later but her original home isn't far from my Mother's, just around the corner actually.
Since they have children and Lucy technically ''belonged'' to one of the kids we thought it would be confusing and hurtful to change her name.

As it happens though, our first Ratties were called Molly and Lucy and we later took in 2 girls, one of whom I called Daisy. I called her sister Poppy. <:3 )~

Love this thread! I am a petsitter and that list posted by OP is pretty right on. Although I do see my share of unusual names. My basset hound is named Macie (she came to us as Miss Mason) so I kept it close. I have a chihuahua named chichi...so original! Wasn't supposed to be that but that's what we just started calling her. I love the name Pixie or puppet. I just finished sitting for a dog named Bedlam! But he was so sweet! I have another client named Fang (he was a teeny puppy and they thought it was funny).
