Names for Dogs

Names for dogs are getting to be more like names for people, and this shouldn’t surprise us at all. Dogs are more a part of the family than ever before!

Some of the large pet companies that keep registration records have been instrumental in reporting back about naming trends for dogs, and it seems that names like Fido, Sweetie, Rover and other similar non-human names have fallen to the wayside in favor of people names like Max and Bella.

Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI) has published its insurance registration findings on pet names for years. Although Max has been the number one dog name now for many years running, and it is fun to see what names are the most popular dog names, don’t shy away from being unique. We hope you will look through some of dog name pages and get inspired by names for dogs from movies, books, nerdy dog names and other.

Looking at names for dogs is a fun process and is one of the first ways you can bond with your new dog.
