What's in a name? For pet owners, a lot. Trying to match a name to a personality, or maybe to just a little bit of whimsy.

Alexis Johnson was with her dog at the park, "I wanted to name my dog a people name because I think it's great when a guy named Henry meets my dog named Henry, and well, I just think it's quite amusing."

Especially if the guy ends up being, a dog.

Nationwide Pet Insurance decided to hold a contest to find out the wackiest pet names out there.

Names ranging from Abigail Carmichael Spartacus, to Rosie Picklebottom and even Smiley Cyrus were nominated. But the winner. from H-Town, Baron Von Furrypants.

"I wonder where they came up with that name?" asked Steve Dupree.

According to his humans, the name just fit because of the fur on his back legs made it look like he was wearing pants.

Cats on the list: Sophistikitty, Sir Nigel Meowmittens of Oscelot Court, with the winner being Leonardo Dicatprio.

Pet names are limited only by our imagination, and these names are definitely spot-on proof of that.
