Top Pet Names for 2012

Posted Feb. 8, 2013

Sometimes I wonder why I was named Henry. You know there are some very famous humans named Henry: Henry VIII, Henry Ford and Henry Fonda. I also read that in Italian my name would be Enrico. How fancy does that sound?

This got me to thinking what are the most popular names for dogs and CATS?

Last year in a survey conducted by Banfield Pet Hospital, a veterinary network in Portland, Oregon, 2.5 million dog and CAT names were collected. Here’s the list of the most popular names in order of more to less popular. I didn’t make the list, did your pet?

Top Dog Names:

  1. Bella
  2. Max
  3. Buddy
  4. Daisy
  5. Bailey
  6. Coco
  7. Lucy
  8. Charlie
  9. Molly
  10. Rocky

Top Cat Names:

  1. Kitty
  2. Bella
  3. Tiger
  4. Max
  5. Smokey
  6. Shadow
  7. Tigger

  9. Chloe

Henry is a former shelter pet who was found wandering the streets of Fort Worth. He was alone, hungry and extremely sick. Living on the streets nearly took its toll on the young dog. Today Henry is a healthy and happy dog who helps promote the message of responsible pet ownership on behalf of all animals.
