Unique Dog Names: Food and Drink Edition

What made you choose your dog's name? Sometimes a name is picked because it's popular or, perhaps, because it's a perfect fit for that specific dog breed.And sometimes the monikers we choose are based on something else we love.

We sorted through more than 10.4 million dog names and 4.6 million cat names in the Vetstreet database, pulling out 186,258 unique names. Then we looked a little bit further to find ones inspired by favorite foods and drinks.

Of course, just because a dog's name is based on a tasty human treat, it doesn't mean that it is safe or healthy for your pet to consume (although, there are some people foods that are OK for your pup!).

Also, take note that the photos in the slideshow below are not photos of theactual dogs with these names.
