Someone gave me a yellow parakeet they named 'Fagala". I'm not kidding.
Twenty - she was my cat. I paid twenty rand for her and thus the name - she was an awesome cat!
I had a beautiful, long haired blonde cat named Bubba Junior. There never was a Bubba Sr. I also had another blonde cat named Booger. Her name eventually morphed into Miss Booger, Queen of the Universe.
My cat is named Willoughby after the Jane Austen character.
As a kid we named our cat "Moxie" after the soft drink.
We also had a tortoiseshell cat named "Mincemeat" because that's what she looked like.
My ex-in-laws (both Dubs) used to live on a farm and would raise two pigs and two sheep every year (they ended up in the freezer). They named the sheep after bible characters (Barak and Gideon, for example) but they'd name the pigs after pop stars (Steve and Eydie, Sonny and Cher, Donny and Marie).
I was adopted by a stray cat, my ex husband called him Hemorrhoids, not kidding. I tried to name him something else but somehow Hemorrhoids stuck. I had to take him to the vet, and when they asked me his name, I blanked out and couldn't remember his nicer name, so I just told them he didn't have a name, I am sure they thought I was an idiot.
My current cat is named Lizzie, I had intended to name her Lucy, which my husband immediately changed to Lucy Fur (Lucifer), but she wouldn't answer to that, she seemed to prefer Lizzie. Lucy Fur actually was probably more fitting, she has a devilish streak. She likes to hide out and then sneak attack. She was hiding out under the bed and grabbing our ankles for a while, it got to where we would dive onto the bed to escape her. Now she waits until I get into bed and stick her paws up under the covers right as they are coming down and claw me a bit, not enough to hurt, just to startle me. Then she runs away to escape punishment.
We have a Manta Ray in Wibble who is named Garbonzo.
