List RulesVote up the cutest names for your fluffy friend. Names must come from movies, TV, celebrities, music, video games, sports, or anything else in the popular zeitgeist in recent memory.

Looking for a cute pop culture pet name for a new cat, dog, or even bird? Naming a pet is no easy decision, but this list of nerdy animal names is here to help. From classics like Garfield, to Harry Potter inspired names like Dobby and Mrs. Norris, there's something for any pet personality.

It's not all fictional character names for pets though - here you'll also find celebrity inspired pet names that are great for fluffy friends. "Stop scratching the couch, Miley Cyrus!" "Beyonce, sit!" Try it out and see what fits for your new cat or dog. Or, if you already have a pet with a hilarious pop culture reference as a first name, add it to the list so others can have plenty of options.
