If your new pet prances to the beat of her own drum, call her after this spunky and aptly named Australian funny lady.

"Workin' nine to five; what a way to make a livin'!" Dolly Parton is a blonde country icon. Her catchy lyrics, engaging voice and curvy proportions are second to none in Nashville. Name your sweet girl Dolly after this sassy Southerner.

Neil Patrick Harris has brought us some memorable characters over the years. From Doogie Howser to playing himself (aka NPH) in Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle to everyone's favorite womanizer, Barney Stinson, in How I Met Your Mother, name your favorite little playboy after a man who knows how to wear a suit.



Sit down, Slim. There's a new dawg in town!

Eminem (born Marshall Mathers) burst onto the rap scene in the late '90s. While his initial reception was mixed, he proved he had serious hip-hop chops and was later declared the King of Hip Hop by Rolling Stone. Since then, he's produced multiple hit singles and even starred in the critically acclaimed 8 Mile, for which also won an Academy Award for Best Original Song. If your pet is a go-getter who succeeds at everything he does, this is the name for him!



Noise, noise, noise... Doin' catnip, drinkin' cream...

Immortalized as the first half of the dynamic drug-selling duo Jay and Silent Bob in Kevin Smith's Clerks and other movies, Jason Mewes (pronounced "Me-youoz") has a name reminiscent of the sound our precious kitties make. That, combined with character Jay's weakness for a certain green illicit substance, makes this the perfect name for a catnip-craving kitty.

In fairness, it's easier to bend it like Beckham when you have four legs.

Athletic animals deserve to be named after the greats. David Beckham is strong, graceful and full of charm. If that also describes your new pet, you've found a winning name.

You know the song. "Believe it or not, I'm walking on air. I never thought I could feel so free-hee-hee!" Name your adventurous sweetie after the greatest American hero... well, the one from the cheesy (and awesome) TV show anyway. Played by William Katt, Ralph inherited a special suit that made him a super-powered dynamo.



Cowabunga, dude???

Bart Simpson may not be your typical blond looker, but he's definitely unique. Especially since he's voiced by a chick. Most people know Nancy Cartwright, whether they know it or not. She was on The Tracey Ullman Show, and has voiced characters in Rugrats and Animaniacs.
