Naming your family pet is always a fun experience; less serious and with more room for creativity than naming a child, the pet names can be meaningful but still a bit silly. Because after all, the other animals aren't making fun of little Moonpie for his ridiculous name. Or are they?

Your local vet has an incredibly challenging, rewarding and often heartbreaking job, but hearing all the hilariously inventive and funny names that people have chosen for their furry friends must provide a welcome bit of light relief. This viral Twitter thread began at the vet where Caskie Mushens literary agent Juliet Mushens was waiting, and she overheard some of the unique pet names as they came and went. “I have two British Shorthair cats, Neville and Luna, and they were there having their jabs,” Juliet explained to Bored Panda. “Funny pet names are clearly a universally popular theme! I am a fan of old man names for pets, but I also enjoyed the incongruous names like ‘Tinkerbell’ for a Rottweiler.”

What about you? Scroll down below to check out some of the best tweets of funny puns in animal names below, and share your own stories in the comments!

I had a huge black cat I named Hades - he turned out to be the most vicious, aggressive nightmare of a cat ever. I still loved him to bits despite the bites and scratches and destroyed belongings but I have to wonder if it was the name that he felt he had to live up to.

Neighbors had a cat called Psycho. They named him that because, at 14 weeks, the cat ran head long into a wall and gave himself a concussion.

I lived in a house with a Doberman named Satan. He followed me downtown. A cop yelled at me from across the street saying the dog needed a leash. I just said Satan was following me.

Trying to remember which novel I read that had two pugs, one was called satan (the other was something similar, devil maybe?) and the protagonist would call him Santa because of the daughter... changed the other's name as well

My cat was named The Saint Louis Arch. Saint Louis is pretty much Satan as a city (that’s where I’m from so I get to say it), and it was chosen to best reflect to his personality.

My wife named all of our chickens, some of the names include: Elinore, Beatrice, Florencia b. Chicken, Victoria, and more. She gave them all proper English names except for the one I named. Which is a black chicken by the name of Morticia.
