Ever wonder what names make the top 10 dog name list? You know, the ones chosen most frequently by fellow owners as their favorites?
Believe it or not, there are companies out there that actually keep track of such things and report this information for public viewing year after year.
Our guess as to the reason why they publish such information is
because they realize dog owners are a naturally inquisitive bunch, and
want to see if the title they’ve chosen for their dog might be on this
list too. Plus, we guess that companies that collect such lists are
probably asked by the naturally inquisitive media as well, and by giving
these yearly lists to news organizations, they get free publicity for
One such collecting company are the good folks at the Veterinary Pet Insurance Company. They somewhat recently announced that based on the analysis of over 360,000 pet insurance policies that the favorite choices amongst owners are shown here on...
Here shown are their listings for the most popular from 2014, with
the side by side listings for both male and female dogs. As you may
notice, many of the most popular chosen remained on the list from 2013, as did the
trend for owners to give their dogs human names.
We don’t see any harm in giving dogs human names, but we would caution owners to make sure that if doing so, that you call your dog after someone you like, and if that persons living, that you check to see if they mind a dog being named after them. You might get a response not expected if you don't.
