List Rules Vote based on the hilarity and creativity employed by the US Presidents when naming their furry (or feathery!) friends.

Naming a pet is a big deal and you want to get it just right. But for these US Presidents, naming pets was a matter of state. People love to get the scoop on all the latest political gossip, and presidential pets are no different. Luckily for the American electorate, the best presidents are very creative! These really might be some of the best pet names of all time!. From dogs and cats to guinea pigs, parrots, and everything in between, those creatures lucky enough to have lived at the White House have some great names.

Take Emily Spinach, Teddy Roosevelt's pet garter snake, for example. She has to be the luckiest (and best named) garter snake in history. But hold on to your hats, because did you know that Calvin Coolidge had two lion cubs?! Whoa, right?! Well, he did, and because he was so clever and cheeky, he named them Tax Reduction and Budget Bureau. What a guy.

Of course, lots of less creative and cool presidents had boring pets like cats and dogs. Fortunately, they managed to spice things up with some clever names. Misty Malarky Ying Yang? That was Jimmy Carter's daughter Amy's cat! Sweetlips? George Washington's American staghound, of course. Satan? Not the devil himself, but John Adams's dog.
  
Any presidential pet can be cute, but the domesticated critters on this list are here because their names set them apart. Your stupid civilian pets will be wishing they had epic names like these. Vote for the presidential pet names you think are the most creative in all of United States political history, and treat yourself to learning about Roosevelt's guinea pigs. He had five!
