The 'Q' and the 'Old Thirteenth' are the shortest and longest pub names and are in the same town, Stalybridge (local to me). The Quiet Woman is a favourite of mine (Earl Sterndale) - always has a coal fire going and is more like a living room.
The Swan With Two Necks is a popular misnomer - it should be 'two nicks', a method of identifying swans according to the nicks in their beaks when they were all owned.
But I bore you..........

Most of the old pub names have a history/reason why they are named as they are.
Unfortunately in the 90's the big pub chains started renaming some just to have an amusing or quirky name.
a local pub near me called the Star which dated back to 1606 had it's name changed for a few years, thankfully the new owners saw sense and returned it back to it's properl name.

One of my local pubs is called ' The Rat '.

It's where all the rat catchers used to congregate back in the day apparently.
