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

If you’re looking for some clever, funny octopus name ideas, you're in the right place. This list includes funny and creative names for octopuses (or octopi, if you're feeling fancy). If you’ve got a pet octopus, you’re almost sure to find a few favorites among these cute puns and good suggestions.

Any list of octopus names must include the classics, like "Inky" and "Sucker." If you’re looking for some other cool octopus names, consider their eight legs (though some researchers say they have six legs and two arms - file that away for trivia night). "Octavius," "Octavia," and "Ocho" are perfect choices. And you could always go with "Eight-Legged Freak" for fun. And, on the spider theme, why not "Big Floppy Sea Spider"? It's a pretty spot-on description of an octopus.

From "Calamari" to "Twinkle Toes," this list of names for pet octopuses should help you find the perfect moniker for your leggy new friend. Vote the funniest, best names up to the number-one spot on the list, and add any punny or sweet names you come up with.
