Sometimes you give your pet a name, and for a variety of reasons, it just doesn't stick. Maybe you tried to give your dog a dignified moniker, but he has a tendency to look derpy and eat things he shouldn't, so you end up with a series of hilarious pet nicknames. Maybe your cat had a cutesy name, but proved to be more of a regal type. Or, maybe you just think of a bunch of funny pet nicknames that have nothing do do with the animal's behavior.
These tweets humorously illustrate what people named their pets vs. what they call them now. You'll find a dog named Heidi who goes by Nostrilization, a cat named Migwib who used to be named Sebastian, and so much more. Sit back, relax, and enjoy some funny pet name evolutions.

Hey, It Could've Been Nutbutt
Our dog is called Nutmeg. A lovely name for a dog. But the sad truth is most of the time we call her Nutface.— MꙬse Allain (@MooseAllain) November 21, 2017
What Happens When Mat And Rug Grow Up?
We had a cat called Carpet (because her fur looked like an orange and brown bedsit carpet)— Nothing but Death (@PhiIIipBlackman) November 21, 2017
Carpet had kittens. The two we kept were Mat and Rug. (Small carpets)
Be Careful Calling This Dog
We had a dog called Dill, named after children's TV character in The Herbs. I couldn't understand why my Mum disapproved of me yelling "Dildo!" when it was time for a walk.— Rachel Martin (@RachelVMartin) November 21, 2017
