For some, Buddy and Max are just too boring for dog names. Try Doogie Schnauzer MD on for size, or how about Sargent Sausage?

Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. (VPI), based in Brea, Calif., for the second year in a row set out to find the 10 most unusual cat and dog names in the United States.

VPI selected 50 unusual names for both cats and dogs from its database of more than 470,000 insured pets, and narrowed them down by voting for the 10 most unusual names in each category.

Here are the results for both cats and dogs:

Dogs Cats
1. Doogie Schnauzer MD
2. Sargent Sausage
3. I Am Sparticus 
4. Lunchbox
5. Angus Sir Loin 
6. Bam-Bam Noodle Butt
7. Mouse Meat
8. Fluffernutter
9. Kanye East
10. Inspector Foo Foo
1. Snag L. Tooth
2. Clawed Monet
3. Velvet Elvis
4. Eartha Kitty
5. Blue Man Chew
6. Catzilla
7. Thurston Picklesworth III
8. Yardsale
9. Dishwasher
10. Polly Prissypants

“Nearly every pet owner whose pet made the top 10 reasoned that a distinct name was only appropriate for their distinct pet,” said Curtis Steinhoff, VPI spokesman. “Snag L. Tooth, for example, has a noticeable ‘snaggle tooth’ that juts out even when his mouth is closed, and Lunchbox the English Bulldog has the stature of, well, a lunchbox. Whether a name reflected the appearance or quirky personality trait of the pet, each ‘Wacky Pet Name’ winner certainly earned or lived up to its clever name.”
