If you were in doubt, the year was 2001. The year before, ‘Nimrod Weiselfish’ won, and in 2005 ‘Tanqueray Beavers’ completed the animal theme hat-trick.
These, and many, many more great names, can be found on the aptly named ‘Name of the Year’ blog.
Another couple of past winners and personal favourites:
2011: Taco B.M. Monster
2008: Destiny Frankenstein
2006: Princess Nocandy
1997: Courage Shabalala
God bless the Internet!
