100 Dog Names -The most Popular Names for Dogs
Our top 100 list is compiled from information given in insurance policy applications to the Veterinary Pet Insurance company. VPI is the largest pet insurance company in the US, and they have been compiling lists of pet names since 1980.
Top 100 Dog Names -The List:
Take a look at the very top of the list for the most common names. For the last several years running, Max has been the most popular name of all. Why? Because it is easy to understand, short (one-syllable) and it suits both large and small dogs, as well as cute and tough ones alike!
Want to see another list of top dog names? For the first year in a long time, the top spot (for the name Max) has been pushed out of position by a girl dog name: Bella. One has to wonder if the Twilight series of books and movies have had an influence....
We also have a page devoted to the popular girl dog names as well as a page that includes the top 100 dog names since 1980, regardless of gender, again furnished by our friends at Veterinary Pet Insurance.
