First thought was Pinhead, but then someone said shit head and that was classic.
Personally, I'd stay away from any pinball related name.
We've used names in the past for some of our cats that had meaning from when we got them.
Puffy - we lived on Puffin Place
Houston - my wife was doing a lot of travelling to Texas
Stormy - just because Stormy Winter sounded cool and my wife wouldn't name our son that!
So I vote for Briggs.
I always liked the name Taffy for a dog.
In fact, I like to name my animals after candy. E.g - Taffy, Toffy, Lolly, Truffles, Candy, Chico, Chomp, Jelly Bean, Minty etc..
Shooter, orbit, post transfer < pun. I like flipper, but then I think of the stupid dolphin edit: flip would be good tho!
Had a friend who named their dog damnit. They would always yell “come here damnit” , “stop it damnit” It definitely caused some stares and mean looks when they took him out in public on walks
I would hold back from Lucky -- that name pops up from time to time at the vet clinic and the dog/cat always seems to have unlucky experiences after adoption -- no fault of the owner of course.
Bumper or Slingshot for pinball names, otherwise if you are like me and have a Polish background we'd go with Stache (as in Mustache without the Mu).
