Why do folk misinterpret the name of my cat?

1st- this not a serious question- it's not a problem, just curious about answers. My kitty is an adorable long haired black and white guy who looks a whole lot like Sylvester from the Looney Tunes. When I adopted him, I called him Sylvester (huge Looney Tune fan-which dates me- I'm 32).

My kitty is an adorable long haired black and white guy who looks a whole lot like Sylvester from the Looney Tunes. When I adopted him, I called him Sylvester (huge Looney Tune fan-which dates me- I'm 32). My bf would say "I tought I taw a Puddy Tat" and kitty always came to him. So we named him Puddy Tat ( I spell it Pud E. Tat).

Even when I explain why we say "puddy" or "pud pud" (which is his common name around the house), folk assume his name is "Pooty". Which is funny (he's been known to "poot"), but then I think folk imagined I named my cat after a fart.

Has anyone had this experience of pet names being misinterpretted? or do I just pick bad names for pets?

Thanks for answers- this is a question that is light hearted. Please respond in kind.
