As any pet lover will know, picking the perfect name for our canine companion can be a daunting task. New parents have an archive of popular baby names to search through for inspiration, so it’s nice to have a similar pool for naming our four pawed pals.

Take a look at the most popular male and female dog names below and see if your pooch has made the shortlist.
