Pet Name: Bertha
A cute little face like this should have a name that holds some weight, because one day she’ll grow into those paws!

Pet Names: Norman, Ruby, Schmooshy, Poker Face
Having a full house of animals (more than we can list here), the Big Bang Theory star knows a thing or two about pet naming. We like to think she takes the cute and catchy approach — and in the case of her horse, Poker Face, she turned to fellow animal lover Lady Gaga for inspiration.

Pet Name: George
The actor’s BFF was George before Prince George was royalty — how's that for foresight? A strong name like George — derived from the Greek word for farmer — holds its own on the New York City streets and beyond (which is anywhere and everywhere Gosling takes him).

Pet Name: Asia, Koji
Creativity is at the heart of whatever the singer does, so it makes sense that her pups wouldn't be given everyday names. When she brought home a new pup in 2016, even her temporary names for him — "cowpig" and "moopig" — stood out from the pack.

Pet Name: Nugget
A.k.a Butters, it just makes sense that a pup this cute would be named after things so rich, golden and delicious.

Pet Name: Esmeralda
Four syllables is a mouthful for anyone, but it’s clear only something precious would do for the chocolate Lab, whose name translates to "emerald gemstone" in Spanish.
