@misunderstood_zombie Well, she was not happy at the bandana. When she is not happy, she will not make eye-contact with us.

One of my furbabies from the 1990s was Sophie and I have a cat named Max. So Ally, Gracie, Mykey, Prissy, Stanley, Hotshot, Rebel, Sandi and Spunky are kinda unique, not bad. I always liked unique.

Those are some unique names. Max is a cool name for cat or dog! Rebel is also a good one Rebelann, lol. Thanks for that impressive list of names!

I live with Sally Gator and then there's Leah. Leah is Rachel's sister in the bible. Our human daughter's name is Rachel so my hubby played a joke on her and decided we HAD to name the new pup Leah. Ha. I also call Leah LL Bean or Leah Lunch Bucket. Yes, I am crazy.

That is so cool! My dog growing up was named Sam, but for some reason I nick named him Bo. I thought it went with Sam well. And he answered to it. Go figure? BTW: I like how you arrived at Leah.

@dgobucks226 My husband came up with the Leah name. He's a fun guy for sure. Our Siamese kitty was supposed to be Lord Voldamort but I hate that name so I said lets call him Teak. (Adopted from a shelter.) Hubby said "How about Beau Teak??? Cool. So now he gets called Beau Beau a lot but his full name is Beau Teak- the Vet receptionists hate figuring out how to spell our fur person's names.

Nice tribute! Looking at the list without the "i" technically you are on the list with Max

It's strange how some names become so popular. And we probably all think we've chosen a name that isn't particularly common.

Some of the names on that list are so unique to me? I've never heard of any pet name called Finn? But what do I know, we named the dogs we had growing up Spot and Sam.

@dgobucks226 I haven't heard of Finn before either. Our pet sheep came with some strange names. Monty, Joel, Baasil, Hercules, Oscar and Petal. The last one was the only one we named ourselves.

My dog's name is Dodger. It was my husband's nickname for me, so when I got a dog, it just seemed appropriate to name her that. I don't think that name would make any list.

Guess not, but I really like the name. One of a kind actually yet so popular sounding to me. Thanks for the input Rhonda.

We have Gizmo and Mush so our names didn't make the list. However, I did have a dog named Max when I was a kid and my Aunt had a Buddy

So, at one time you did have dogs on the most popular list. I imagine if you use different names over time you are bound to make the list. By the way, our dogs were: spotty, red, and sam so I missed he list too.

Ours were already named Penny and Faye when we adopted them from the shelter. We used to have one named Molly.

There you go a list maker! My pets never made the list. My Aunt had a dog named Penny. And she was a very small pup, so the name fit well!
