Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has one of the best names in the world of sports and the former Alabama Crimson Tide safety has been honored for his unique name as a kitten has been adorned with the adorable name Ha Ha Kitten-Dix.

Clinton-Dix was the first round pick of the Green Bay Packers, being selected with the No. 21 overall pick after a standout career with the Crimson Tide. Despite signing a four-year deal last week, the honor of having this adorable little creature named after him tops all of that or his multiple national championships in college.

Okay, no it really doesn’t, but do you really wanna upset this little guy?

Here’s more on how Kitten-Dix got his name and some more pictures of the little fur ball from jrn.com.

Stephanie Van Groll, who lives in Kaukauna, named a baby kitten Ha Ha Kitten-Dix after the safety from Alabama.  The kitten has a fascinating story.

“Ha Ha is a 5 week old kitten whose mother died of old age with four babies,” Stephanie, who operates a semi-pro team called the Wisconsin Ravens, told me.

“(Ha Ha’s) mom belonged to my make up artist.  She posted about it on Facebook, I told my two girls, and they thought it was terrible!  ‘Ask Dad!’ was the first thing out of there mouths.”

The father said it was OK, and they adopted the kitten in a similar fashion to other Packers-namesake pets.

“I asked the girls what we would name him. They name the pets after Packers players.  The last cat was Jordy. My oldest, who watched the draft with us, yelled, ‘HA HA!!’ I smiled, and there he was, Ha Ha Kitten-Dix.”

Coolest name for a pet of all-time.
