    Human body - afterimage7 - 14h My dogs name is Paxil like the antidepressant. My wife came up with it since we are both pharmacist. I hadnt seen a pet named that before but I've seen it since we got our dog 6 years ago

    We love this concept!! Doggo is named after an antidepressant, this could not be more fitting for a very special doggo that radiates positivity and good vibes. There is nothing like a sweet, happy doggo to get your serotonin levels flowing.

    Human body - sassybabycows · 12h Our golden is named Russet, like the potato. We got him when we lived in Idaho, and he also looked like a little potato when he was a baby.

    Russet like the potato! Totally pawesome. This Idaho born pupper resembled a russet potato at birth and his owners were inspired. We love unique and cool names and this one takes the cake. Super cute.

    Font - Spilled_Milktea · 12h My dog's name is Oolong. He's a very long boi and my husband and I are both big tea fans, so we thought it was perfect. It can be hard to explain to people who have never heard of the tea before and we often have to repeat ourselves when they ask, but we love it and it suits him so well.

    Human body - hermit-esque · 12h I called my late GSD Moggy (short for Mogwai -- like Gizmo from Gremlins) because of her big goofy ears, aversion to bright lights and water, and constant begging for midnight munchies! I'm from the UK so most people assumed I was just being weird and calling her "cat" all the time, though...

    Human body - TheRoseByAnotherName · 13h Not exactly unique, but less common. I have a cat named Romulus. He had a twin named Remus, but the whole litter got sick around 6 weeks old and Remus didn't make it. A little ironic.

    Font - IhaveapetTurnip · 12h I have a dog named Turnip. We got him from a rescue who names their dogs by a theme of the month when they recieve them. His theme was food. The daughter of his foster named him. We kept it.
