BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Ruffy the Vampire Slayer. Sir Lix A Lot. Princess Consuela Bananahammock.

With Pablo Purrrcasso and Isabella Miss Worldwide Boo at the top of the list for cats and dogs, respectively, Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. on Thursday released its annual Wackiest Pet Names list.

Each year Columbus, Ohio-based Nationwide, which provides pet health insurance for pets, examines its database of more than 700,000 insured pets to find the top 20 funniest names — 10 for dogs, 10 for cats.

Here’s more: Sir Reginald Fluffybutt. Chauncey Von Poops a Lot. Vladimir Poochin.

“The results from our Wacky Pet Names competition illustrate the thought and creativity pet owners put into naming their furry family members,” said Scott Liles, president and chief pet insurance officer for Nationwide, in a statement. “Pets hold a special place in our members’ hearts, and while some of these names are assigned just for laughs, many of these monikers hold a special meaning or story behind them.”
