Doggypedia, the #1 place to help dog owners raise happy, healthy dogs, today announced the release of their study on the most popular dog names in America. The study was performed by surveying tens of thousands of dog owners across America on the name of their pup.
Naming a puppy is one of the longest lasting, most important decisions new dog owners will make after adopting a new puppy, and the way dog owners choose their names is highly personal. Research found that dog owners name their dogs in dozens of different ways, but surprisingly, the most popular dog names are traditionally names for people, such as “Pete”, or “Jeff”.
Dog owners also named their pups after famous Disney dogs, highly desirable foreign locations, distinguishing features, foreign cuisine, and more.
A popular trend in the last several years has been naming dogs after memes. However, many dog owners surveyed admitted the meme their pup was named after was no longer popular or used.
Another popular way to name a new pup is a word in the language of the country the dog is from, for example we saw many German Shepherd owners naming their dog a German word.
More interesting stats from the survey:
• 7% named their dog after someone famous
• 11% adopting to name their dog something funny, clever, or based on a meme
• 8% named their dog based on a distinguishing feature of their dog, such as the color of their coat or facial marks
• 19% of Scottish dog breeds gave their dog a Scottish name
• 3% of dog owners named their dog after a famous city or landmark
• 1% of dog owners named their dog after a deceased releative or friend
• 7% of small dogs were given a “small dog name”, while 9% of larger dogs were given a name that emphasized the dogs size – think ‘Zeus’.
Overall the research highlighted dozens of naming strategies, some common, some less common, but almost all of the dog owners surveyed are still happy with their dogs name, indicating you can’t go wrong however you choose.
