2016 Pet Names: Most Popular For Dogs and Cats

2016 pet names

I found an article recently on showing the most popular 2016 pet names.  Some of the names are the same for dogs and cats, but there are quite a few differences.

The trend to name pets human names rather than the traditional Spot, Bowser or Fluffy continues.  Interestingly, you will probably see some of these same names on the most popular baby names lists for 2016.

Toward the end of the article are some of the weirdest names they came across. I imagine you’ll shake your head as I did when you see them.

Without further ado, here are the 2016 Pet Names that ranked the highest:
