The Trendiest Dog Names
In the popular television series Columbo, the detective played by Peter Falk was sometimes accompanied by his droopy-faced basset hound. His dog’s name: Dog. Most dog owners are a bit more imaginative when it comes to naming their pets. The list of the most popular dog names generally doesn’t change much from year to year, a little like the list of most popular dog breeds in America. But some names are trendier than others, though they might not make the list of most popular.
THE TOP TEN TRENDY NAMES FOR MALE DOGS:
Sawyer — A fitting name for a mischievous or adventurous dog.
Jack — A solid, popular name.
Hudson — Here’s a name gaining popularity with human babies, but seems suitable for a hound.
Finn — Perfect for one of the Irish breeds.
Emerson — A fitting name for a dog of noble stature.
Bear — Good choice for the large canine; comical choice for the toy breeds.
Max — Another trendy name for human babies. Any dog would be comfortable with it.
Kai — It’s hip and means “ocean” in Hawaiian.
THE TOP TEN TRENDY NAMES FOR FEMALE DOGS:
Elsa — It grows on you.
Bella — It was the most popular female puppy name last year.
Quinn — A bit masculine, but some female dogs act like tomboys.
Sophie — Reserved for the cutest puppies.
Charlie — A fitting name for your little angel.
Avery — The name has a British ring to it.
Lila — A fitting name for a fluffy pet.

What on earth is wrong with a dog being named Aurora? I’ve met a lot of people and a lot of dogs and if I had to choose, I’d go with the dogs. They certainly score higher on the nobility scale. They are also certainly not petty enough to say, “Oh please, a person named Spot!”
I’ve known and named dogs Sophie, Bonnie, Gladys, Iris, Mabel, May, Clyde, Bailey, Jasper, Helen, Lucien, Sonja, Birdie, and Nicky. Nothing wrong with any of those for dogs, cats, people, or even fish.
