When it comes to people, names can be powerful labels.

Common or rare, names can pack a punch in just a few letters. Some hint at history and culture, while others capture someone's personality to a T.

When you meet a man named Alexander, for example, it might conjure images of an ancient conqueror. But then you meet another guy named Alex, and all of sudden you're thinking about playing Guess Who? with your sister in the '90s.

Names are funny that they 🙃

Animal names are every bit as fascinating as human names.

Animal names are cool and quirky because they're like tiny stories wrapped up in a single word. Red pandas, blue whales, some names tell us what an animal looks like, while others like, Arctic fox or Amazonian tree frog describe where they come from.

Then there are the quirky animal names like blobfish, boobie birds, naked mole rats, and pink fairy armadillos that seem too silly to be true...like the animal group names in the gallery below.
