A new study says food related pet names are growing in popularity. Rover.com did a survey of the most popular pet names in 2018. Food related pet names increased by 12 percent. Especially brunch and breakfast related pet names. Top names on the list included: Biscuit, Muffin and Waffles. Other food inspired names were: Couscous, Pasta, Crisco, Cheetos and Ramen. Alcohol related pet names are also pretty popular. Whiskey, Porter, Guinness and Brandy were among the most common names.
Overall, the top male dog names were: Max, Charlie and Cooper. The top female dog names were: Bella, Lucy and Luna. Naming pets is something I have always had to consult with other family members about. My mom was great at naming pets. The two strays we took in many years ago were named "Mugsy" and "Prissy." A perfect match for their personalities. My son and his girlfriend (at the time) named the dog I have now "Maddie."
I've also adopted pets from local animal shelters that already have been named. My wonderful Lab/Shepard mix was named "Rusty." The cat I have now is "Daisey."
