BREA, Calif., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — “Bella” and “Max” once again topped the list of most popular pet names last year, but there are thousands of pet owners who look for more originality when naming their furry, four-legged friends. Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. (VPI), the nation’s oldest and largest provider of pet health insurance, celebrates the most clever, creative and quirky pet names nationwide. After a thorough selection process, 50 unusual dog names and 50 unusual cat names were chosen from VPI’s database of more than 485,000 insured pets and narrowed down with a vote for the 10 most unusual names in each category. Following are the 10 Wackiest Dog and Cat Names of 2012:

“Sorting through our database of more than 485,000 insured pets, we found some very interesting, amusing and flat-out peculiar dog and cat names,” said Curtis Steinhoff, director of corporate communications for VPI. “When we spoke with the pet owners from our Top Ten lists, we heard some entertaining and heartwarming stories about how each owner selected their unusual pet name. While monikers like Stinker Belle and Vincent Van Furrball might sound odd, they are also a reflection of what makes each pet unique and special to their family.”
