They’ve compiled a list of the 50 most unusual cat names for 2015 as submitted by their online community, along with each cat’s unique story. The winner for this year’s wackiest cat name is Leonardo Dicatprio.

The cat was originally named Leo, but his guardian likes to give her pet’s more interesting names, thus Leonardo Dicatprio was born!  In case you may not’ve guessed, actor Leonardo DiCaprio was the naming inspiration.

Leonardo the cat not only has an unusual name, but he has some interesting habits.  Unlike many cats, Leonardo loves water, and jumps in the shower often to enjoy it.

Leonardo isn’t the only cat in his family was an unusual name.  His feline sister is named Buffy Sumeowers after Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Leonardo’s human says people either smile when they hear his name, or are baffled by it.  She intends to give the next feline addition to the family a more common name like Max to offset the more unusual Leonardo and Buffy.
