Celebrities strike us with awe from time to time. If it’s not about what they are wearing, it’s got to be about some quirky comment they made about something and so forth. With these guys there’s never a dull moment. Maybe the trait comes with the celebrity tag, we might never know for sure, perhaps not until we join the A list.
Aside from cocky comments here and there, some of the celebrities barely fall short of humor when naming their pets. If you thought naming your pet Zumba or Old Monk was really crazy, you will be surprised when you see the list of dumb names your favorite celebrities use for their pets.
Weird doesn’t even come close to describing the sentiments when we came across some of these names. Some of them are so dumb, they mark the thin line between outrageous and ridiculous. Being the celebrities that they are however, they get away with it. In fact, some of them are so adorable we might even forgive them for the ludicrous names and end up adopting one for our pets. After all, who wouldn’t mind calling their pet Oprah, right? Your pup might as well thank you with a new Ferrari!
10 Adam Sandler's dog: Matzo Ball
Adam Sandler must have a thing for balls; hence the name Matzo Ball. Sandler also had another dog, Meat Ball who tragically passed on at 5 years old. Meat Ball had been a fan favorite, appearing in a number of scenes on screen and on his website. Meat Ball also made a red carpet appearance during his 2003 wedding to Jacqueline Titone. RIP Meat Ball. Matzo Ball on the other hand does not seem to shy away from the attention either. Word is out that a while back when working on set for Bedtime Stories, Matzo Ball found himself rather too close to the waves on Santa Monica beach, and had to be pulled out.
9 Rihanna's dog: DJ Oliver
What do you do when you have been in the music industry long enough, hoping from one gig to another, tours from country to country and churning chart bursting hits every other day? Well, everything in your life is about music. Rihanna loves her music so much she had to name her pet DJ Oliver. If you are a DJ Oliver out there and you are not so famous yet, perhaps a name change would suffice. Maybe sometime the maltipoo will soon share a stage with its owner, spin some cool music on the decks, or even turn up with DJ Tiesto.
8 Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's dog: Martha Stewart
Of all the things Martha would have patented, how on earth did she forget to include a clause for her name, never to be used on pets?? Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck must really love Martha, or hate her so much they named their dog after her. What we do understand about Hollywood is the fact that your kids must have a special if not a unique name, but whether that unwritten rule applies to dogs, that much we might have to do some digging to find out more, or maybe consult Martha herself.
7 Rachel Bilson's dog: Thurman Murman
Move over Uma Thurman, there’s a new sheriff in town. Rachel Bilson features on this list for all the obvious reasons. She has been spotted from time to time going shopping with Thurman Murman, we are pretty sure she gets shopping advice from her puppy. Now that we will not be seeing any more of the O.C., perhaps Rachel might even surprise us with more shots of Thurman Murman, and who knows, maybe some time in the future she might feature alongside Uma Thurman – with Hollywood you can never be too sure these days.
6 Cesar Millan's dog: Daddy
This goes out to all fathers out there, make sure you treat your kids well, show them the affection they need and be there for all their soccer games, sleep outs and all other activities in their lives, lest they name their dogs after you. Let’s face it, who names their dog Daddy? Who responds to the name when you have a family get together? How do you even explain to your kids that Daddy is not daddy, but daddy is Daddy?? Cesar, you need help!! Sadly though, Daddy passed on in 2010.
5 Audrey Hepburn: Mr. Famous
Audrey Hepburn does really know how to play God, you name it and it happens. So on the third day Audrey had a dog, she marveled at this unique creature and imagined how amazing life would be for it on the planet. She was pleased with what she had, and decided to call her dog Mr. Famous, and indeed the dog became famous. So famous was the dog that it featured alongside the master in Funny Face. Word out to all of us, if we ever need to get something done, find Audrey; all she has to do is name it!
4 Sophia Bush's dog: Patch
When it comes to giving dogs names, Sophia Bush might have taken some serious IT classes. For most of us, the mention of a patch elicits ideas of that game you illegally downloaded online and have to crack or patch to enjoy full access. Well, for Sophia, Patch does grant her full access security. There is an unwritten rule never to mess around with pit bulls, so next time you come across the One Tree Hill star without bodyguards, be very careful how you approach her, Patch might be lurking somewhere in the background waiting to pounce.
3 Paris Hilton's pups: Harajuku B***h & Tokyo Blu
It would have been preposterous to round up this list without the mention of Paris Hilton. Tokyo Blu and Harajuku B***h; who would have ever thought up names like these? Only Paris Hilton can get away with something like this. Harajuku B***h and Tokyo Blu have been spotted with their owner from time to time, going shopping, having a meal out, and at times they get their seat at the high table too. It is amazing what some of these pets are able to accomplish given the chance. Perhaps one of these days Harajuku and Tokyo will feature alongside Snoop Dogg.
2 Martha Stewart's pooch: Genghis Khan
Listen Martha, we love our history and we would love it to stay that way. Genghis Khan, founder of the Mongol Empire would certainly appreciate if his honor was left to at least naming kids. Perhaps we need to seek an audience with Martha, so she can tell us the inspiration that she draws from Genghis Khan, her beloved dog. Anyone who names her dog Genghis Khan must do a lot of meditation, or at least we can assume that the dog might really have a way of speaking to her in a language that only they understand best.
1 Christina Aguilera's dogs: Stinky and Chewy
Nice one Christina, nice one! Sounds like Stinky will be taking the blame for almost anything in the house. Anyone want to release a fart in Christina’s house? Just yell Stinky!! Animal rights guys really should up the ante on the likes of Christina though. If only dogs could talk back, Stinky might probably have a long list of people who need to feel his wrath, especially on false accusation. Apart from Stinky, Chewy sounds rather suspicious for a pet name. Either way, we can only imagine how much Chewy gets away with.
