Tell the Truth and Name the Devil (Dog)

Posted by CYNTHIA JENSEN on

Your new furry family addition is hopefully not a devil, but you do want to make sure to give him or her a name that will reflect their personality.  The names we give our dogs are not always the “dog names” of the past – like Buster or Rover or Rex – but often cross over into what were traditionally people names, or even random words that mean something to us, our friends and our families.

As a maker of personalized dog bandanas and T-shirts featuring your pet’s names, I see my fair share of names that people call their dogs, cats, and even rodents or pigs!  So, I thought I would give everyone a list of the names that have popped up in the last year, so you can have some inspiration on some potential doggie designations.

The top 10 most popular names:  

 

  1. Bella
  2. Buddy
  3. Cooper
  4. Daisy
  5. Bailey
  6. Shadow
  7. Tucker
  8. Gus
  9. Luna
  10. Kiva
