Getting a pet also comes with the responsibility of giving it a name. From traditional dog names like Fido and Patch to cute kitty names like Fluffy and Meow. It is always fun to learn what other people have called their pets, and there is a lot of interest in the rich and famous and their four-legged friends. So what names are popular with the Hollywood A-listers? Here are 30 of the funniest and cutest celebrity pet names for you to garner some inspiration!
As you might guess, Tinkerbell is a small pet, a chihuahua, who is often found in her mum, Paris Hilton’s bag living the pampered life.
2. Kitty Purry
These are certainly two words to describe a cat, and it is the moniker chosen for this feline by her owner Katy Perry.
3. Empress Tang
Indeed, a very grand name, and it belongs to a sizable Persian cat who is the baby of Martha Stewart – all her pets are named after conquerors.
4. Genghis Khan
You can, therefore, probably guess who owns this fabulous Chow-Chow! Yup, animal lover Martha also has some canine friends.
A little less conventional here, but this very grand bulldog belongs to Adam Sandler and even starred in the movie Little Nicky with his dad.
6. Mr Fluffy Pants
We would imagine he is just Mr to his friends! Mr Fluffy Pants belongs to Ke$ha and is a very adorable feline.
More food-themed cat naming here, and as daddy Bobby Flay is a celebrity chef, you can almost understand this one!
No, this isn’t a pet bird, it is a gorgeous dog, and his mum is Selma Blair; we don’t know if this was a tribute to the Nintendo character or not.
This is actually a relatively common dog name, and this Pepper, along with siblings Sugar and Cinnamon, belongs to Emmy Rossum.
Socks was a very important cat; she lived at the White House as a pet to POTUS when her daddy Bill Clinton held office.
11. Martha Stewart
Martha may be a legend in her own right for her unusual dogs’ names, but her name is so good Ben Affleck picked it for his Labrador!

Not quite the exact spelling as the chat show legend, but 50 Cent has named his miniature schnauzer after the Queen of chat.

Back over to the White House, we go, where Bo and Sunny, the Portuguese water dogs, spent the duration of their dad’s time as POTUS.
18. Mimi LaRue
She sounds like a showgirl, to be honest! But Mimi LaRue is, in fact, a very pampered pug belonging to actress Tori Spelling.
We have met this owner already, but she is a dog lover with more than one canine; meet Wink, the Jack Russell, also belonging to Selma Blair.
Perhaps not the sort of name you would associate with a big dog, but Tina is a Pit Bull that belongs to Jessica Biel.
