CHANCE.. if I see or hear of one more half dead dog being called CHANCE I swear I am going to shoot it..ok not really........but REALLY? (we recently have a volunteer that took in a huge st bernard an idiot left AGAIN in an abandoned house..and you know it .. CHANCE).
Lucky there is nothing lucky about being dumped and found and stuffed into a shelter..
Buster.Buddy, Bella, yup yup yup.
and all time every time I hear it, already mentioned but, is PRECIOUS. and why are precious's always the most abused in my world?
Sadly Scooter (who came with her name ) seems to be another.Scooter Puter, Scooter Bean ,Scooter Pie.. Scooter..argh.........

My local shelter would win if there was a contest of most stupid names givin to dogs. One time a queensland mix was named Martini. I crossed it out on her paper because it was so horrible and I think someone else named her appropriately.

Yes, my dogs name is Buddy, but his name was chosen before we ever met him. His shelter name was King.. Hate that name. Its stupid because they thought a tough name was fit for a tough little 8 week old sick looking puppy.. Anyway. My boyfriend once found a pitbull puppy as a 8 year old kid. He loved that dog so much and named it Buddy, because he was such a good loyal friend from the very start, always following him around. His mom wouldnt let him keep it because it was a Pitbull and it was taken to a no kill shelter in Fresno, Ca. I believe. He was really sad, if not heartbroken, and he hasnt had a dog of his own since his dog Granite died when he was six. So when we found "King" Bf said his name was going to be Buddy, and I knew the story behind it right away. Even though thats his name on paper, he is almost never called it, we always call him Bubba.

Bella! We have at least one a day in at the s/n clinic. There was even a day there were 3 cats and 2 dogs named Bella. I mean come on!!
Angel (or Angle depending on if the owners can spell their dogs name). Every Angel I have met has been a biter.
Chihuahuas named Chico or Paco.
Yellow labs named Marley.
Maggie, Macey, Lucy, Tiger, Tigger, Cuddles, Prince/ss, Kane, Buddy, Baby, Sugar, Molly, Coco, Blu, Red, Spot, Max, King, Kitty, Honey, Nala.
Or my personal favorite names ever (yup, these are real) Meatwad (dog), Stupid (cat and a dog), and The cat formerly known as the flying booger kitty.

We had someone applying for a pet at my last shelter who, in the section to list past pets, listed the cat named "Little F**ker". Spelled out clearly, of course.

Heh. That's just a nickname in this household.

I could live without the neverending tide of Bella, Coco, Murphy, Brandy, Stella, etc.

Would be excited for no more pit bulls named Yayo, White Girl, Hyphy, Diamond, Indica, Ruger, Dro, or King.

I can't believe Noone said "Sox" for a cat or a dog with white paws. I can't stand that name.

I think it's an inner-city thing being as those are drug references. We get a lot of those here, especially since we started doing vaccine clinics in some not so nice areas of Detroit with my work and got a grant to give Wayne County (one of the poorest counties in the state) residents free vaccines.

Baby Girl
Moose
Buster

Those were the most used names at my shelter. I'm sure there are more but the shelter has been closed for over six months now so I've forgotten. :(
