Top Pet Names 2008

Any of my regular readers knows that I have an obsession with unusual names- campy telenovela actresses, Latina/Latin American beauty queen finalists, Barack Obama-loving politicians in Brazil, or Venezuelan congressmen called Lenin, if it's a story about weird naming practices, I am all over it!

But the pet name arena has remained unexplored, until now. Semester crunch-time anxiety led me to scroll around the MSNBC news site while procrastinating today and there I found what might motivate me to adopt a second cat: my top "unusual" cat name ever SIR LIX A LOT. Of course, I appreciate the shout out to that poet of hip hop, Sir Mix A Lot, singer of one of my favorite songs ever "Baby's Got Back."

Here is the list, according to the TODAY show via MSNBC:

Most unusual
1. Edward Scissorpaws
2. Sir Lix-a-lot
3. Optimus Prrrime
4. Buddah Pest
5. Snoop Kitty Kitty
6. Miss Fuzzbutt
7. 80 Bucks
8. Sparklemonkey
9. Rosie Posie Prozac
10. Toot Uncommon

For the full list and the ones for dogs as well:
