“The results from our Wacky Pet Names competition illustrate the thought and creativity pet owners put into naming their furry family members,” said Scott Liles, president and chief pet insurance officer for Nationwide. “Pets hold a special place in our members’ hearts, and while some of these names are assigned just for laughs, many of these monikers hold a special meaning or story behind them.”
