McLoven the Stud Muffin

The number one wackiest dog name belongs to an English Bulldog. Pet parent Elizabeth Shikiar of Wilmington, NC came up with the name after he was newly adopted while watching the movie “Superbad”. She was toying with the name Stud Muffin when she heard the name McLoven in the movie and knew she had the perfect name for her new furry friend. Elizabeth says she has always given her pets quirky names, as she feels a name should reflect their personality.

Agent Jack Meower

The number one wackiest cat name, Agent Jack Meower, belongs to a cat that pet parent Derek Klingel of Stroudsburg, PA says couldn’t fit the feline any better. Derek is a huge fan of the show “24” with actor Keifer Sutherland playing agent Jack Bauer, he always remarked that if he ever got a cat he was going to name him Agent Jack Meower, and he stayed true to his word when one day rescuing a kitten in the snow turned into adding a sassy feline to his family. What Derek couldn’t have know was how fitting the name would be, as his rescued kitten matured into a cat with an energetic, ornery and slightly mischievous personality, much like the character he was named after.
