#3 Coco

#4 Ruby

#5 Lucy

#6 Bailey

#7 Daisy

#8 Rosie

#9 Lola

#10 Frankie

For the third year in a row, the name Bella claimed the title of the World’s most popular dog name. Indeed, with the exception of Victoria (in which Charlie proved to be the #1 top dog name), Bella earned the top ranking in every state and territory. All hail Bella. Long may she reign.

Clink clink, let’s drink

In a thirst-quenching turn of events, World Dog Owners have revealed a love of drink-inspired dog names. In fact, one-third of the Top 15 dog names were inspired by drinks. Interestingly, this pattern doesn’t continue among the lower-ranked names. This suggests that, as far as dogs and drinks are concerned, World Dog Owners have an “all or nothing” policy. Condiments also made a cameo, with “Pepper” and “Chilli” taking the 32nd and 95th spots, respectively.

Pop Culture Takes a Slump

Compared to earlier top dog names lists, the popularity of pop culture-inspired names saw a decline. Amidst the Top 20 Names, pop culture references were conspicuously absent.

However, pop culture does still holds some sway over naming choices in the Top 100.

(NB: we’re glad to see Simba and Nala rank in the Top 100. Thanks to the live-action remake of The Lion King, they’ll surely remain popular in World for some time!)

Human After All

When it comes to surging trends among dog monikers, the World has seen a tidal wave of human names. It’s a pattern that walks hand-in-hand with the growing role dogs play in the lives of their Owners.
With more and more Millennials opting for animals over children, dogs are increasingly evolving into companions for their owners. As such, Pet Owners are now humanizing their dogs more than ever.
By the same token, classic dog names are far less prevalent than you might expect. The usual suspects, such as “Rover” and “Fido”, didn’t earn a single ranking in the 100 Top Dog Names.

Top Dog Breeds

While Poodle-crosses seem to be everywhere, it was the ever-loving Labrador Retriever that took the top dog breeds spot. Moreover, larger and more outdoorsy dog breeds enjoyed a surge in popularity across the board.
The prevalence of more outdoor-oriented breeds could suggest a move towards a more active lifestyle for the average Dog Owner.
Below we’ve listed World’s top dog names. If you grew up in World, you could be forgiven for thinking you were looking at your high school yearbook.
