Pet owners really should think carefully when they choose a name for their animal, but that doesn't stop some people calling their dog Chicken-Fish and cat Pickywickywoowoo.

Yes, you heard right, Chicken-Fish and Pickywickywoowoo were just two of the weird and wonderful pet names given to our furry friends, according to a Battersea Dogs and Cats Home survey.

Other daft names making it into the top twenty of the nation's craziest were Doobywotsits and Bootlebumtrinket for a dog.

Princess Maisie Dolores and Mister Fuzzy Mittens made it into to the top twenty for oddest cat names along with Bat Cat and Mr Wriggle-bum.

Pet owners really are a creative breed.

Rob Young, operations manager at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, said: "You can be a little bonkers when naming your pet - just remember you may have to shout it out in the park! We love the wacky names in our top 20, they are truly original."
