Miltank ( in Japanese: ミルタンク “Miltank”) aka “The Milkcow Pokémon” is a Normal-type Pokémon. She does not evolve.
I named a Miltank “Lisa Cuddy”. Lisa Cuddy was a character played by Lisa Edelstein on the Medical-mystery TV series “House”. Sometimes I just name them “Lisa” or “Cuddy”.
I think that the name is appropriate because the name “Cuddy” sounds and resonates like “udders” as in cow’s udders. Also, cows chew their “cud”, so that is another cow reference. Also, “Edelstein” (her Twitter linked here), sounds like a breed of cow, similar to “Holstein”. Of course both of those names may be appropriate variants for Miltank – but how many Miltank do you really want in your Pokémon Bank?
I like a Miltank to have the “Thick Fat” ability. It seems fitting for a defensive cow. Some trainers think that her “Milk drink” move is a little bizarre, however.
Of course, “Bossie” might be good as a cow name. I think that some variant of “Elsie” or “Borden” may be good, as those were famous dairy examples.
I caught one in a Timerball which I named “Milking Time“.

When I was growing up, Fathers often used this phrase as a warning to their daughters. You know the old saying:
Why marry a cow, when you can drink milk at home.
Wait, that’s not it … was it: Why buy a cow, when you can pay for your own milk?
… and I don’t think that is it …
Why have sex with a cow, when Lisa Edelstein is married?
No, that’s definitely not it. Um …
