When it comes to naming pets, people tend to take their time to think long and hard about something to call their little bundle of furry joy. Understandably, because they're going to be belting them out for years to come!

And just as with giving their offspring's curious names, some celebs like to get their creative juices flowing when naming their critters. Here are 10 of the most adventurous and downright hilarious examples in Hollywood:

1. David & Victoria Beckham

David and Victoria Beckham adopted a pair of micro-pigs and named them after family friends, Elton John and David Furnish. The dynamic duo apparently reside in the couple's country estate in England.

2. Adam Sandler

Sandler's bulldog is called Matzoball, a name representative of the actor's inexhaustible sense of humor -- Matzo is flat, unleavened Jewish bread.

3. Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake is clearly a huge fan of Harper Lee's 'To Kill a Mockingbird' because he called his pups Atticus Finch and Boo Radley. Here's the trailer for the movie version of the classic novel:

4. Martha Stewart

Martha's Chow Chow is named Ghenghis Khan, after the Mongolian ruler, and heavily features on her fabulous pet blog on her website.

5. Paris Hilton

Paris affectionally called her Chihuahua Harajuku Bitch, and never looked back:

6. Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck

Yep, I doubt you would have guessed this one -- this couple's dog is called Martha Stewart!

7. Tori Spelling

Tori thought it would be awesome idea to get a chicken that looked like it exploded and call it Coco Chanel.

8. Rebecca Romijn

Rebecca's miniature poodle has one epic name -- Better Business Kisses Galore. 'Better' for short, obviously.

9. Reese Witherspoon

Apparently, Reese is mega in love with miniature donkeys so decided to get herself a pair to love -- Honky and Tonky are their names!

10. Sarah Silverman

Not only does Sarah's Silverman wear pup booties, but he's also called Duck. This combo could not be more awesome if it tried.
