Top Dog Names of 2010

Each year dogs everywhere look forward with anticipation to Petfinder.com releasing its list of most popular dog names for the year.  They do cat names too but I’m not particularly interested in those… and for good reason I’m sure you’ll agree!

The list includes the top 10 most popular celebrity-inspired pet names and I thought it might be a nice way to round off 2010 if we had a little look at the movers and shakers of the year!

For a fourth year in a row, Buddy stayed in the number one spot for dogs which is hardly surprising considering that’s exactly what we are – the most fantastic Buddies on the planet!

Here are the complete lists for the most popular adoptable pet names of 2010.

Top 10 Dog Names:

  • 1. Buddy
  • 2. Max
  • 3. Daisy
  • 4. Bella
  • 5. Lucy
  • 6. Jack
  • 7. Molly
  • 8. Charlie
  • 9. Sadie
  • 10. Rocky

Top 10 Most Popular Celebrity-Inspired Pet Names:

  • 1. Elvis
  • 2. Houdini
  • 3. Cher
  • 4. Madonna
  • 5. Twiggy
  • 6. Oprah
  • 7. Lady Gaga
  • 8. Beyonce
  • 9. Coco Chanel
  • 10. Shakira
Now I don’t know about you but if someone called out “Lady Gaga!!” in the park I would be extremely embarrassed for the dog in question!  Something on a parr with when your human has chosen a Dicky Bag that is a size too small for you – terrible!
However I have to say I know a cocker spaniel named “Beyonce” who is quite the queen of woofiliciousness!
So, if you are looking to add another member to your pack in 2011 will you be going with a name from the 2010 list or will you be calling out something else on your walkies?
Enjoy the New Years celebrations (but don’t forget we dogs aren’t too keen on Fireworks!) and I’ll see you on the other side!
Smell you later
Dicky Dog
