List RulesVote up the funniest, most clever names to give pet foxes.

Whether you’re the proud owner of a pet fox or just have a fox hanging around your place, the fox needs a great name. This list of fox names is just what you need if you’re looking for funny, creative, and clever fox names and name puns.

When it comes to funny fox names, consider going with “Fox Mulder” – especially if you think your fox might totally believe in extraterrestrial life! If you’re going for punny fox names, think about celeb names like Megan Fox or even Michael J. Fox – surely a beloved pet fox deserves the name of such a beloved actor.

You can always go with some of the classics: “Foxy” or “Mr. Fox” (shortened from “The Fantastic Mr. Fox” of course). “Sly” would be hilarious once people figured it out.

If you want to go with foxes in movies, TV shows, and books, consider names for pet foxes like “Nick Wilde” and “Gideon Grey” (from Zootopia), or “Kristofferson Silverfox” from the aforementioned Fantastic Mr. Fox movie.

Whatever name you choose, hopefully this list of ideas for fox names will prove helpful. Vote for all of your favorites, vote down any that just don’t quite work for you – and add any great fox names that might be missing.
