Revered historical figures, a celebrated author, and a popular chicken curry dish were among those immortalized by pet owners in 2020.

Nationwide Pet Insurance has published its rankings of 2020’s most imaginative and unique dog and cat monikers. Names were selected from the company’s database and voted on by its clients.

A hairless Chinese Crested dubbed “Scarlett No Haira” took the top prize in the canine category, while first place in the feline category went to “Edgar Allan Paw.”

“While we all love a descriptive name like “Goldie,” or those that captured the zeitgeist like “Rey” or “Bella,” pet parents who take a unique approach to pet naming are also very much appreciated at Nationwide,” says the company’s chief veterinary officer, Jules Benson, BVSc, MRCVS. “Whether the moniker is meant to be funny, ironic, or just plain nonsensical, giving an intentionally uncommon name shows a special thoughtfulness about a pet’s place within a family.”

The 10 dog names to take the top spots were:

  • Scarlett No Haira
  • Anakin Tailwagger
  • Andre Igoudogla
  • Joan of Bark
  • Madame Squishy Van Wrinkleface
  • Stella Barktois
  • Sugar Bubbles Fancypants
  • The Other Dude
  • Trillium Points Jacobs Ladder
  • Zoe Max Berger Sacks

Meanwhile, the top cat names were:

  • Edgar Allan Paw
  • Admiral Turbo Meowington
  • Captain Sushi
  • Copurrrnicus
  • Ella Whiskers Oreo Hurst
  • Fernsbane the Inquisitive
  • Macaroni Bob
  • Mingus Pookiebutts
  • Neville Furbottom
  • Tika Meowsala
