Here are the 20 most popular dog names
Choosing a dog’s name is not to be taken lightly, because one thing is certain, you will say it often. Sometimes in an authoritarian way, other times with discouragement, often between two yawns waiting for them to do their business in the early morning before you go to work but always with love. However, when you buy a small (or large) furry beast, it’s for life. And if sometimes a name comes to mind immediately, the task of naming your pet is not always easy. Whether you are looking for an original name or want to follow the trends, this list of the most popular dog names will help you. Here are the 10 female and 10 male dog names to consider or avoid.
It seems that many dog owners are Twilight lovers since at the top of this list of the most popular female dog names is the first name of the main heroine in this vampire saga.
Clearly, human first names are popular with pet owners. Lucy is the second most popular female name. The 1951 sitcom was right, many people love Lucy.
Another classic that is not about to go out of style. Daisy has often been a name given to feminine girls but also to men and women’s best friends for decades. And it seems that this is not about to change.
Amateurs of the Harry Potter series or new age owners, more and more dog owners are deciding to name their pet Luna. Short, feminine and poetic, this astral name lends itself well to a sweet and affectionate female.
This friendly diminutive of Dolores is suitable for several types of dogs. From the excited French bulldog to the calm Danish, all races and personalities make charming Lolas. No wonder this female name is so popular.
In sixth place is another classic in the world of dog names. Sadies have been part of American families for years and, if the trend continues, they will continue to bring love and energy into the home for many years to come.
Mollys are everywhere and despite their large number and the popularity of this name, those who wear it are all very unique. A little crazy and full of energy or a calm older dog, dogs named Molly continue to add colour to our lives.
We know or have all known one or more Maggies. They come in all shapes and colours. The little beasts with this name have marked many of us and have not finished making their place in our hearts.
Bailey is suitable for both males and females, which increases its popularity index. Widespread well before the release of the film A Dog’s Purpose, the friendly golden retriever named Bailey may well increase the number of canines of that name.
Always in line with the names of humans popularly assigned to animals, Sophie is the most appropriate to designate both your friend’s dog and your cousin. However, it must be said that a little corgi is even more adorable when its name is Sophie.
Still the most common dog name, Max remains at the top of the list of the most popular male names. Not surprisingly, it is heard everywhere, most often followed by “come back here” and “don’t do that” as well as some occasional “NOOOOOOOOO!”
Charlies are undeniably cute. And if there are so many of them, it’s because it’s hard not to be touched by the sight of a playful and clumsy little puppy. It is therefore tempting to name them all Charlie.
Cooper is an old classic of animal-loving people. Dog owners who name their dog Cooper are not on their first dog and probably not on their last one either. Coopers are serene and happy… And there are many of them.
Although already very widespread, Buddy is one of the last ones for whom we notice a craze. However, its popularity is not difficult to understand. Extremely cute and friendly, this name literally describes whoever wears it.
What were we saying about human names again? Like the others before him, Jack is perfectly suited to a furry beast. Especially if the latter is an adorable little rascal.
You know the type. Rocky accompanies his master on the trails and runs alongside him during his bike rides. But not all Rockies in the world enjoy perfect life in nature. Some of these owners of rottweiler, mastiff, Doberman and boxer are simply big fans of the movie of the same name.
You don’t have to be a Charles Dickens fan to name your dog Oliver. We doubt very well that the popularity of the name has little to do with the novel that became a musical comedy and became a 20th-century feature film. Oliver simply fits endearing, energetic and carefree little animals.
Perfectly suitable and undeniably paradoxical, Bear is the perfect name for a dog with abundant fur. And that, many have understood it since many furballs answer to this nice name.
Duke is the endearing dog of the all-American family. He takes part in barbecues in the garden and may even deserve a good T-bone with a little luck. Duke is this warm presence among both well-ordered families and those who like to be bold.
The male list of the most popular dog names would be incomplete without the very common name Tucker. There are certainly many of them and most of them accompany their very young master to their baseball game. It’s well known, Tuckers love to bring the ball back.
Choose one of the options from this list of the most popular dog names if one of them fits with your little beast or brainstorm a unique and uncommon name. As long as it suits them well, it is not your pet that will hold a grudge against you and the rest is of little importance.
