For the seventh year in a row, Rover.com has released their annual list of the top dog names. “The names we give our pets provide a peek into our passions, aspirations, happy places, and guilty pleasures, reinforcing what we at Rover know to be true: our pets are as unique as the names we lovingly bestow upon them,” said Kate Jaffe, trend expert for Rover.

Rover gathered data for the Top Pet Names of 2019 report between September and October of this year. They analysed millions of user-submitted pet names from those that use their services as well as collected more data from a survey of 1,500 adult pet owners.
