You think your dog has a wacky name, do you? Does it make the list of 10 Wackiest Dog Names of 2013?

The list, which is compiled by Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. (VPI), picks creative and quirky pet names from across the nation every year. VPI goes through its database of more than 500,000 insured pets and picks the 10 most unusual names in each category.

“With a database of more than half a million insured pets, we came across some extremely peculiar dog and cat names,” said Curtis Steinhoff, director of corporate communications for VPI. “After speaking with the pet owners from our Top Ten lists, we found that there is a special meaning and story behind unusual monikers like Captain Underpants and Mama Pajama. Many pet owners treat their dogs and cats like a part of the family and these unique names help reflect that.”

Without further ado, here are the 10 Wackiest Dog Names of 2013

1. Sir Knuckles da Dragon

2. HotRod Whoofington

3. Captain Underpants

4. Stinky Monkey

5. Taco Salad

6. Dallas Cowdog
