Just like when naming a baby, a great deal of care and thought normally goes into choosing what you'll be yelling at your furry friend for years to come. In practice, however, most of us just end up calling them whatever comes to mind over the years, and at some point realize that those nicknames have actually become their identity. Twitter user @MooseAllain recently shared the unfortunate moniker their pet was doomed to carry, and sparked a chain reaction of other animal owners confessing how their companions' names 'evolved' as time went on. It's one of those truly pure and delightfully hilarious moments on the Internet that just makes you want to tune everything else out for a short while and have a giggle.

Scroll down to see what people are really calling their pets, and let us know what you're guilty of dubbing yours. (h/t)

In a similar vein, our dog Greko is usually "Dammit Greko!" But he gets Goat, Lumpy & Flumpy too.

Prince Freddy Flicka Gittfoh - A Not So Great Mama Cat Had Kittens On Our Son's 11th Birthday. Four Kittens Expired The First Night And We Weren't Sure This One Would Survive, So We Told Our Son To Put Off Naming "Her". I Can Normally Tell The Sex Of Newborn Kittens. After Two Weeks, He Named "Her" Flicka. As Flicka Matured, We Caught "Her" Humping Another Female And A Vet Check Confirmed That "She" Was A "He". My 15 Year Old Son Wanted To Change His Name To Freddy After Freddy Mercury. I Decided To Give Him The Title Of Prince And My Husband Mostly Says, "Get The F$!k Out Of Here" To Him, Hence The Acronym Gittfoh. Every Family Member Gave Him A Name, But He Is "Prince" On His Vet Records And Mostly Answers To "Kitty".
