Each year, Nationwide (formerly Veterinary Pet Insurance) recognizes the most clever, creative and quirky pet names across the nation. Baron Von Furrypants nosed out Artoo Dogtoo and Leonardo DiCatprio purred past Fuzz Lightyear to be named the Wackiest Pet Names of 2015.

After a thorough selection process, 50 dog and 50 cat names were chosen from Nationwide’s database of more than 525,000 insured pets. The top 10 dog and 10 cat monikers were put to a public vote, where Baron Von Furrypants and Leonardo DiCatprio were chosen as the wackiest. Following are the 10 Wackiest Dog and Cat Names of 2015:

“Every year our database expands, and we see more and more creative pet names,” said Curtis Steinhoff, director of pet insurance communications. “Many times the most interesting aspect of a pet’s name is the story behind it, and this competition gives us a chance to share those tales. Whether the moniker is a simple pun or an eccentric mixture of terms, all the names on our Wacky Pet Names list are one of a kind.”
