It's no secret that naming your pet is already a stressful endeavor. Once you name them something, that name is positively theirs for life! That's what you're going to be yelling for a long time, and it's every bit as much a reflection on you as it is on your pet.
So it would only make sense that naming your dog or cat after an icon from our favorite decade would be priceless. There's certain suitable pet names from the '90s that humans still adore to this day, and they also pay homage to some of the shows that defined our childhoods. Some of the names are still modern, but most of them are just kind of funky and fun — just like sitcom characters were.
If you've ever considered naming your pet anything that nostalgic, just remember you're doing society a favor by ensuring we remember pop culture history. You're helping people keep up with the legacies of institutional shows that modern day Generation Z might forget! Whether you'd like a throwback to Friends, Cheers, 90210, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, there's countless options for having your furry friends display the ultimate quirkiness.
