Best / Funniest / Most creative names for pets?

Postby Fubar » July 29th, 2013, 7:45 am

What are the best names you've seen in a team and/or for individual pets?

Marks should go towards creativity, humour, originality and suitability to the pet it's attached to. A good name should be one where most people would get the context or meaning (a.k.a this means obscure references score poorly).

I'm interested in those names that made you go "ahhhhh... that's genius".

So tell me what you got/what you seen!

I saw a Crawling Claw a couple of weeks ago named "Handjob".

A lot of mine are somewhat obscure references, but one I'm fond of that isn't too subtle is my Darkmoon Glowfly, called Buzz Lightrear. :)

Can't think of many that I've seen on other people's teams, but will keep this thread in mind. :)

Shore Crab - Eugene


I laughed out loud at that one. :D

Then again, if he knew you were using his name, he'd probably try to charge you for it.

My pet names include a mix of obscure and obvious references. For example:

My Sea Gull is named Jonathan.
My Kun-lai Runt is Sweetums.
My Emperor Crabs are Cuddles, Huggy and Snuggles.
I have a Black Lamb named Rory.
My Ghostly Skull is Travis.
My Vampiric Batlings are Chaos, Destruction and Terror (my work here is done).
My Mouse is Algernon (I always make sure to give him flowers when I have him out).

I've named my Infected Squirrel 'Edgar'. The name just popped up the moment I saw this pet. The elegant name gives this undead squirrel a lot of character :-)

My Gilnean Raven is Huginn and my Crow is Muninn, named after Odin's ravens. And my Unborn Valkyr is named 'Hildr' who was a valkyrie who could revive the dead.

That name takes the cake in my book!

I don't have any really funny/interesting names for my pets, unfortunately. I think the most creative one I managed to come up with was Jean Gray (I know it's spelled "grey", but grey is apparently not allowed) for my Dark Phoenix Hatchling.

I don't know why but I giggled when I jokingly called Murky Murkychu. I need to work out some macros for when I summon him.

"Go Murkychu!" or "I choose you, Murkychu!"

^ easily amused :lol:
