As dog owners and lovers, we have come a long way!
It has been a long time since the names Fido, Spot, and Rover topped the dog name list. In fact, this year’s most popular dog names might be just as common at the day care center as they are in the dog park!
VetStreet.com recently analyzed their database to find the most popular dog names of 2014.The results will probably not surprise you. You may even know of a dog whose name appears in the list!
Out of almost a million registered dogs, Max and Bella have topped the list for the second year in a row.
The top 3 female names — Bella, Daisy and Lucy — remained in their top ranks! The name Luna made a huge jump, leaping four spots since 2013, although not included in the top 10 list. VetStreet.com links the name’s increase in popularity to the “Harry Potter” series.
For male dogs, half of the names retained their positions! Cooper, Duke, Bear, Bentley and Toby all stood tall holding their titles.
VetStreet checked their database of almost 1 million names registered since Jan. 1 this year. Check out the top 10 lists for their male and female dog names:
