Did your pooch make the cut?
The news we've ALL been waiting for is finally here. Yes, we have them. The most popular dog names of 2016 have been revealed.
Compiled from the database of Healthy Paws Pet Insurance, the most popular male and female dog names of the year have officially been released. And they aren't what we were expecting.
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.

Fear not cat lovers, the most popular names for male and female cats of 2016 have also been released. From what we've seen below, it would appear cat owners are slightly more creative when it comes to naming their feline friends. Though there was a surprising cross over between popular names for female dogs and popular names for female cats.
