Dank, Buzz, and Slinky: Surprising Popular Pet Names

Did santa surprise you with a four-legged friend this christmas? Put some thought into its name.

According to a new study by Rover.com, the most popular names for dogs and cats are pretty much the same they’ve always been. For the past year the top names for female dogs are Bella, Luna, Lucy, Daisy and Lily.

For males, its Max, Charlie, Cooper, Buddy and Rocky—the only new addition to the top five.

For felines, the top girl names were Luna, Bella, Lily, Lucy and Kitty and for boys; Oliver, Leo, Milo, Charlie and Max.

So while most pet owners aren’t getting that creative, there are a few shaking things up. Further down the list were names from pop culture such as characters from “Game of Thrones” and the “Marvel” movies. With “Toy Story 4” hitting theaters this year the names Woody, Buzz Lightyear and Slinky were on the list.

And with the recent passing of laws making recreational marijuana legal pet owners had some fun with the names Dank and Kush. Wonder if they’ll give their animal a taste?
