by Silver Paw on April 19, 2018

Did your dog make the list? Just like human babies, trendy dog names are all the rage now. Are you going with something classic or something fun? It goes without saying that all dogs are adorable. But as anyone who’s spent two minutes with a beagle knows, some breeds are just a little goofier than others. So, when it comes to obedience and training, which dogs are the leaders of the pack?

The nation's largest network of pet sitters, dog walkers and pet-related content has released its yearly report for 2017. Using collections from its database, Rover compiled a list of most popular monikers for man's best friend -- and to be honest, we're not that surprised.

The pups that made it to the top 10 consisted of mostly human names, such as "Jack," "Sophie" and "Bella." Nearly 44 percent of all dog names are human, found the database.

Interestingly enough, Rover pointed out that monikers inspired by "powerful women" were up 21 percent, including "Oprah," "Katniss" and "Madonna." Wonder Woman-themed names were up 45 percent, while the name "Ivanka" surged almost 90 percent in the past year. 

Similarly, pet owners seemed to look to pop culture for some name inspiration. Names from Stranger Things such as "Barb" grew 188 percent, while Eleven grew 166 percent. Star Wars fans looked to "Rey" and "Leia," and other television fans loved "Khaleesi" and "Snow."
