When it comes to naming your new pet, how do you decide what to name it? It’s always a wonder where some of the pet names come from and how owners decided to name them. Do you put a bunch of names in a hat and use the name of the first one they pulled out? That may be how some people name their pets, but others take the name of their favorite artist or their songs and name their pets after them. Or they just wear a cute cat shirt. Whatever floats their boat.

Although, artist’s work hard to make it to the top of the charts with their songs, they do have to suffer through some rather unusually “things” to keep their fan’s happy. There are many singers such as Eminem, Lady Gaga, Pink who have had to deal some very strange things.

It’s not enough that Eminem songs, Lady Gaga songs and Pink songs are always on our minds. Now, there are rabbits, dogs, cats, and even birds that not only have singers names, but some of them are named after songs written and sung by a favorite artist, such as the songs from Eminem, Lady Gaga, Pink all have rabbits named after them. Also, Eminem, Lady Gaga and Pink are the number one favorite names for rabbits and birds.

Just as bands have taken animal names such as Wolfmother, Gorrilaz, The Eagles, Arctic Monkeys, Counting Crows, The Beatles, The Monkees, and The Animals, it’s ok to name your pet after your favorite artist or band member.
