This might be the truest Comic XKCD has ever done. My Dog’s name is Luda
But we rarely call her Luda. Some other nicknames that have gone in and out of rotation:
The Loudest Houndest
The Bonus Creature
Chili Limon, the Left Handed Reliever from the Yankees
I’m forgetting at least a dozen more.
So, what’s your Pets name (feel free to post a pic for context!) and their name, and what do you actually call em?
this is Gelatin Pudding!
most of the time i call her Jelly, but she also responds to:
Jellyyyyyyyy (with infinite y’s)
Hateful Cloud! Hateful Little Cloud!
Foot Eating Goblin
Dog (from my grandma and only my grandma)
Don’t Eat That No
(and @M_o, the dog formally known as luda is so cute! what a good dog!)
oh god, I just have so many. Both dogs and nicknames for said dogs. I’ll just give the highlights. In age order:
This is Liza. She is known as:
The Terror From Below
This is Bonnie. Her nicknames are:
Bonald J. Grump
This is Loki, AKA:
Lo Chi Minh
“This Is All Your Fault, You Bastard”
This is Jack. He’s Bonnie’s little brother, and is also called:
This is the baby of the family, Lilly. (Don’t tell anyone but she’s my favorite.) Her nicknames include:
Lovely Lady Lillertons
Woof. I have some bad nicknames for my dogs.
Hey @M_o, do you know what kind of dog Luda is? She looks a lot like Jackal and Bonald and I have no idea what breed or breed mix they are.
This is Stinky, aka Stinkerbell (before he kept losing his collars at least), Smelly, The Boy, Idiot, or Stop Licking My Feet You Gross Nasty Boy
We think shes a Chihuahua / Italian Greyhound mix but really we have no idea
We’re pretty sure Bonnie and Jack are chihuahua mixes too, but don’t really have any idea. That smile looks just like my dogs, tho!
We have three cats, one named after a bird, another named after a mythical creature, and the third named … for another reason.
We call all of them “cat.” It used to be more specific, i.e. “him” or “her” but then another “her” came along so they’re all just “cat.”
This is Koopa my olde English bulldogge. As in King Koopa. Everyone thinks I’m saying Cooper when I tell them. Then I have to explain it’s fron Super Mario and they give me that, “Ohhhh” that really means, “that’s weird.” ¯_(ツ)_/¯
This is Sofia, who also goes by Sophie, Sofa, Moosh-moosh, and Moop.
My black cat’s name is Voltron or Volt
I call her:
My family has a rabbit named Sherlock. I call him a fuzzbo, and he’s my little fuzzbo
This is Hela. Here names include:
This is Lola. Her names include:
This is Brunhilda, who I love, who is technically my roommate’s cat, who we all call Hildy
I will from time to time (all the time) refer to her as “Lil Hildy” or “A Dear Friend to All” or “My Friend Hildy” or “Cat!”
This is my family’s dog, Teddy, who I also love
I generally refer to him as Teddy or Lil Ted and I haven’t seen him in a few weeks but I’ll see him again on Friday!!
Here’s Rambo! We didn’t name him, he’s technically the neighbours cat. But they had a baby and he decided he didn’t like having his tail pulled by a small demon. We already had a catflap in our conservatory, so he just kinda decided we were his new best friends.
He generally gets called either Bohdie, Ram-Bam (sometimes Ram-Bam-Bino), Moggie, Catly or just Cat.
this is ji yong! he’s named after kwon ji yong, aka g-dragon from bigbang, partly as a reference to a bird we used to take care of who was named Dragon. so already a silly elaborate reference. other names include:
my beautiful boy
my incredible child
my wise child
my beautiful wise boy whom i love
my beautiful screaming gremlin
the yelling infant who lives in my house rent-free and eats all my berries
ps i love this thread??
These are all our rescue’s we have had for a year and a half, so they came with names already

This is Poppi. We’ve had her since she was a puppy, so just under eleven years. She is called:
The Poop Dog
This is Elwood. We’ve had him for about two years–he’s a rescue. He is called:
I’m sure there’s more for both that I’m forgetting about.
