Celebrity Dog Names

Celebrity Dog Names

Unique celebrity dog names are even more ubiquitous than unique celebrity baby names. The rules for baby names may have loosened, but there are no rules for dog names. Number names, food names, the literal names of other celebrities – sure, you can do that when naming your dog, and much much more.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have a miniature poodle named Butters, Demi Moore adopted a Papillon called Pilaf, and Cardi B and Offset’s pitbull puppy is named Walk (yes, just Walk).

But Paris Hilton ranks first among crazy celebrity dog namers, with pets called Harajuku Bitch, Slivington, Diamond Baby, Dollar, and Marilyn Monroe.

Paris isn't the only celebrity to name their dog after another celebrity. Tennis great Serena Williams named her pooch after tennis great Rafael Nadal, Marco Lopez's dog is named after boxer Oscar de la Hoya, and Snoop Dog named his dog after...himself.

Below, the craziest celebrity dog names and the stars who chose them.
