There are some names most sane parents wouldn’t even consider using for their human babies, names like Spot and Fluffy, however it seems that when it comes to names for pets, all human names are up for grabs. Particularly in the case of posh people. Ever noticed how the upper classes always choose the most human of names for their fur babies? And they also treat their fur babies like humans, really turning the rest of us off from following their example?
Look, I say this as someone who has posh friends, and as someone who every now and then will kiss my dog Sadie on the mouth. I once begged my cat Millie for a cuddle. I more than anyone completely understands how lines can become blurred when it comes to babies, both animal and human.
Still, I blame posh people.
Who thinks these pet’s names are something like Prince and Walter? Article continues after this video.
Here is a definitive list of a whopping 44 baby names that work for both human babies and pets. Just so you can avoid the typical “Tweetie” for your budgie and “Boo” for your rabbit. Because pets deserve decent names too.
The name Milo is arguably the most versatile name on this list seeing as it works for most breeds of pets, is an adorable baby boy name and is also the name given to one of our favourite treats which in my opinion tastes better sprinkled on ice-cream than it does stirred into milk. Not to mention the iconic, epic, hit 1989 movie The Adventures of Milo and Otis, Milo being the tabby cat and Otis being the pug dog. If you’ve ever seen it we INSIST you watch it this weekend.
