Your dog is special to you and one of a kind, unless your pup is named Bella or Max, then that may be a different story. As we near the end of 2019, the Banfield Pet Hospital, the largest general veterinary practice in the U.S., combed through its database of pet patients to determine the most popular dog names in America, and which ones are on the rise.
Per usual, pop culture played a big role in pet-naming trends: Game of Thrones may be over and done with, but fans are still paying four-legged tributes to the incredible series by naming their pets after favorite characters; 24 percent more dogs were named Sansa in 2019 compared to 2018. Some names from The Avengers made the list too, with 44 percent more dogs being named Spider-Man, while there are 12 percent more puppy Thors in the world than there were last year.
