The decade that gave us grunge, the Spice Girls, triple-pleated jeans, and the Macarena (actually, let's just forget that last thing ever happened) was also arguably the golden age of the taped-in-front-of-a-live-studio-audience sitcom. It's also a decade that yields some pretty great sitcom-inspired pet names for your consideration. Check out our top picks.
1 - Seinfeld (or Jerry, Seinfeld) - For a pet that's easily annoyed by petty stuff.
2 - Chandler (Friends) - Can animals be sarcastic? No? Well, it's still a good pet name.
3 - Kramer (Seinfeld) - A lanky, goofy pet lacking finesse, but is always a barrel of laughs.
4 - Gunther (Friends) - For a moody pet with a permafrown who's prone to jealousy (especially if fair-haired)
5 - Murphy (Murphy Brown) - Already a popular name for male pets, but would be great for strong, independent female critters.
6 - Eddie (from Frasier) - For JRTs, of course.
7 - Blossom (Blossom) - For smart and spunky female furballs. Points if you get her to pose in a floppy hat!
8 - Frasier (Frasier) - For a purebred pet who's on the aloof side.
9 - Salem (Sabrina The Teenage Witch) - Black cats, obviously.
10 - Zack (Saved By the Bell) - Mischievous male pet who's too cool for school.
