Battle Of The Pets: The Most Popular Dog And Cat Names Of 2019
When it comes to pet names, there are some major trends that came out of this year.
Website Rover.com has compiled its annual list of the most popular names of our furry friends by accessing data on millions of cats and dogs in the United States.
Taking out the title of the most popular dog names were Bella and Max (the same as 2018) while the most popular for cats were Luna and Oliver.
There was an obvious nod to tradition in the lists, with Oliver also being the long standing winner of the most popular baby boy name in Australia, having kept its number one position for an incredible eight year in a row.
Many of the other names that proved popular, such as Lily, Zoe, Jack and Cooper, also appeared in the top 100 list for baby names in Australia in 2019.
In addition to long standing favourites, pop culture was another big inspiration when it came to cat and dog names in 2019.
The report found that 'Game Of Thrones' inspired names went up by 28 percent, such as Arya Stark which went up by 150 per cent following the season finale.
Superhero names further saw popularity, with 'Black Panther'’s Okoye seeing the biggest growth, up by 250 percent following the release of the movie.
