Here Are the Most Popular Dog and Cat Names of the Year

Naming a pet isn’t like naming a kid.  You can name your dog ANYTHING and it won’t affect their life at all.  Can’t do that with a kid.  And yet, for some reason, people still use the same handful of pet names.

Rover.com just released the results of its data on the most popular dog and cat names of 2021.  And here’s the Top Five for each . . .

Female dogs:  Bella . . . Luna . . . Lucy . . . Daisy . . . Lola

Female cats:  Luna . . . Bella . . . Lily . . . Lucy . . . Nala

Some people DID get creative though.  And for inspiration, they looked to . . . the pandemic.  (???)  Dogs named “Dr. Fauci” were up 270% . . . the name “Covid” was up 35% . . . and people are also naming their pets Pfizer and Zoom.
