The Top Dog Names of 2017 Have Been Announced And (Some) Are Cute Enough To Be Baby Names

-

There’s a lot to consider when it comes to naming your pup. It’s arguably harder than naming a child, because you have a much wider range of names to choose from. After all, you can’t very well name your kid “Bacon” and get away with it.

My Dog’s Name, a resource for finding the perfect name for your dog, announced the top dog names of 2017 and while some of them are predictable, some are more…unique. The results are based on the search selections of the 3.2 million new dog owners who used the site so far this year.

Tried-and-true favorites like Bella, Max and Buddy still top the chart but according to the results, a lot of newcomers have exploded in popularity this year. Honestly, some of them would even make great names for babies– minus Oreo…and Chewie.
