Popular Cat and Dog Names

The list of most popular cat and dog names in 2015 was recently released. The increase in cats and dogs being named Bella does bear some correlation to the increase in popularity of the Vampire drama "Twilight", a show that features a female vampire of the same name.

Naming trends also suggest that the sound of a name has an influence over an owner's choice. Of the current top ten, no name has more than two syllables and Max is the only monosyllabic name currently en vogue.

Names ending in 'y' or 'ie' such as Daisy, Molly, Lucy, and Sophie are consistently popular choices due to the ease with which a dog owner can call the name.

As for cats, there are some names that appear in the dog top ten too, including Lucy and Bella and according to PetFinder - Bella is the most popular cat name of the year. 

The name you choose says as much about you as it does about your pet. It shows how you view your pet and your relationship with it.

Some names can cause people to judge a pet and react positively or negatively/fearfully when meeting it.

For these reasons it is important to use a name that conveys the proper image.

Giving human names is now the current trend in naming pets.

When you look at the list of the most popular pet names, it looks like a page out of a grade school class record. Many cat and dog owners look at their pets as family members.
