Brand Names for Pets

Walk around your neighborhood, and you may notice dogs with names like Dior, Poptart, or even Zoloft! (Yes, people are naming pets after their antidepressants now).

Brand names for pets have become incredibly popular and continue to rise. Names including Bentley, Diesel, Harley, and Oreo rank among popular dog names 2024, while Oreo and Snickers rank among popular cat names 2024.

Among the fastest-rising brand names for babies in 2022 — the most recent year on record — were Amiri, Celine, Oakley, and Armani for girls, and Amiri, Cartier, Stetson, Heath, and Dior for boys.
