Although these nickname spirals are too hilarious, I am also in awe. I mean, you call others by their nicknames because you feel a sense of affection for them. Nicknames signify belonging and you can tell how much these owners love their pets as they have given so many nicknames to just one animal. The ones I have read so far, I found the transition extremely hilarious. You could sense some form of a relation in some of them from the original name to the latest nickname but the others were just so out of the blue and random that you couldn’t help but laugh at them. What I love the most is that the pets still recognize their original names and still respond to them. This screams nothing but love.

Let’s enjoy some more original-to-nickname-spirals because I am loving it and I hope you guys are too. Scroll down below to continue!

16. This cat went from being called by his original name Charlie to his current nickname Buddy Roll.

These are the ones I am talking about. Initially, the transition makes sense but then it takes the most hilarious turn that makes zero sense.

25. Jackson Daniels to Jack to JD all make sense. But then JD to Nugget to Mud Butt sounds like three different nicknames of three different dogs. I can’t with these people. So hilarious!
