  • Making us want a dog EVEN MORE

    If you’re thinking about getting a pet and are currently engaged in the dogs vs cats debate, we have a few things that might help you make up your mind. Firstly, dogs love their owners five times more than cats do according to scientific research. Secondly, walking a dog makes you happier – again, science says so. And thirdly, a study found that humans love dogs even more than other humans which is hardly surprising because dogs are just fantastic in every way.

    Taken all that in? Great – you’re getting a puppy.

    But when it comes to naming your adorable little ball of fluff, where do you start? Do you opt for a classic pooch moniker? Should you think about bestowing them with a more human name? Will you go completely rogue and make something up for a name that’s totally unique?

    You could choose from this list of the most popular pet names – or you could take a look at the most popular puppy names. The monikers that are fast becoming top choices for baby dogs are super cute.

    Trupanion have put together the most popular puppy names, and here they are:

    1. Luna
    2. Bella
    3. Charlie
    4. Bailey
    5. Lucy
    6. Cooper
    7. Max
    8. Daisy
    9. Bear
    10. Oliver

    It seems to be a fairly balanced mix of more human names and dog classics at the moment. Lucy and Daisy also appear on the list of most popular baby names of last year, as do Oliver and Max.

    Bella and Charlie also appear on the most popular pet names list, and Luna is also the most popular name for a pet cat.

    Would you choose any of the names that appear on this list?

    To be honest, we love them all.

    Guess that means we’re going to have to get ten dogs so that we can use them all…
