People Share Their Pet's Hilarious Nicknames With The Internet

by Ariana

For a long time, at least as long as I can remember, there was maybe 10-20 different pet names that people seemed to rotate through. Fluffy, Happy, Brandy, Hopsy, Mittens, Buster, Bandit and Baxter were all fairly common for what seemed like a pretty long time. It seems now, however, with the rise of social media and the internet (where we often see household pets with their own Instagram accounts boasting thousands of followers) that people are becoming far more creative with the names they choose for their beloved four-legged friends... and the nicknames.

Recently, a Twitter user shared the nicknames they have given their pets and the internet LAPPED. IT. UP. It started with a humble cat owner who stated that people needn't know anything about them other than the fact that their two cats meant more than anything to them. Their names? Jyn and Milky.

The owner then revealed, that despite her fur-babies having official names, she frequently referred to them by their nicknames. Jyn's being Demon Baby, Beelzebub, and Potato Princess. Milky's included The Dairy King, Fuzzybutt, and The Spud Prince.

As strange as it seems (to have nicknames for pets) the internet ERUPTED with people who had absolutely outrageous nicknames for their pets, too.

Twitter user @metroadlib shared the many aliases of her dog:
