Picking a pet names is almost as hard and exciting as picking baby names! Just like baby names, each year there seem to be some that everyone is simply in love with. Months ago we released a list of what we anticipated to be the top pet names of 2017. Eager to see how our predictions stacked up we were all ears when we heard that My Dog’s Name had just announced the top picked names for the year. The list is clearly influenced by what’s raging in popular culture, with shout-outs to Star Wars having bumped a few names up in the rankings! It sure can be hard to knock some of the classic names out of the running though! So, without further adieu:
- Boy names – Thor, Loki, Asgard, Bruno, Bowie, Prince, Lou, Drake, Lebron, Peyton, Beast, Ezra, Kylo, Rex, Luke, Max, Rex, Duke, and Pluto.
- Girl Names – Freya, Belle, Nala, Leia, Zelda, Ruby, Molly, Ali, Hilde, Astrid, Lucy and Scully.
