22 Amazing Celebrity Pet Names You Might Just Want To Steal –
When it comes to naming their kids, all bets are off with celebrities, (cough) KANYE! (cough), and with their pets, it’s no different. Check out some of the funny, unique, and sometimes just strange names these stars chose for their furry friends.
Ariana Grande named her doggo after the Harry Potter character.
A world-renowned chef, Bobby Flay named his feline friend after a dish he likely never prepares.
One of Adam Sandler’s bulldogs was named after the Jewish dish matzo ball soup. He also had another bulldog, Meatball, who starred alongside Sandler in Little Nicky.
Sadly, Chunk isn’t around anymore, but Chelsea Handler still posts about him on her Instagram page.
Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz named his dog after the popular kid’s book, The Berenstain Bears, only slightly changing the spelling.
Probably the most fitting pet name of all time, Katy Perry’s cat even made a cameo in the music video for I Kissed A Girl.
The name was originally meant to be disrespectful, but after sitting down with the real Oprah, 50 Cent squashed the beef and admitted he was a fan.

Named after the character from 2003’s Bad Santa, Rachel Bilson nailed it with this one.
Christina Ricci named her dog after the American singer and drummer of The Carpenters. Before Karen, Ricci had a dog named Sheriff Steve Goldberg.

The puppy on the right is named Hobbs, like his character in the Fast and Furiousfranchise.
I wouldn’t call this name strange, on its own anyway, but Emmy Rossum has two other dogs named Cinnamon and Sugar too. So Pepper is the spicy one of the trio.
The force is strong with Anne Hathaway’s pup.
Child and Foxy Cleopatra
Reality star turned actress Nicole Richie chose these two names for her dogs, who both have their own IMDb pages.

I have no idea why CeeLo Green chose this name, but I like it!
Eye In The Dark
For anyone else, this name (or phrase really) would sound ridiculous. For Norman Reedus, one of the stars of The Walking Dead, it just seems right.
The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialek’s cat was born without a pectoral muscle and needed a metal prosthetic, so naming her after the metal inside Wolverine’s body only makes sense.
