National Puppy Day

March 23, 2012 by staff 

National Puppy Day, In honor of National Puppy Day (March 23), reveals the most popular puppy names and the meanings behind them. In the past year, readers submitted more than 5,000 puppy names to petMD, ranging from traditional dog names like Spot and Fido to more obscure monikers such as Quinnsaki and Zaboomafoo.

To get a better understanding of how pet owners choose names for their new pups, petMD recently polled its readers about their puppy name choosing style. Approximately 40% of respondents said they look for creative or unique names, perhaps to give their pets a sense of individuality. Human monikers took 28% of the vote, a surprising second place considering 8 of the top ten names are also human names. Rounding out the field, 18% of readers said they prefer descriptive names like Fuzzy or Brownie, and just 12% remain fans of the more traditional dog names.

Without further ado, the top five boy puppy names and top five girl puppy names according to petMD readers are as follows:

Boy Puppy Names , Ace – Ace is a human moniker commonly given to dogs. Two of the most famous Aces include dog actor, Ace the Wonder Dog, and Batman’s loyal pooch, Ace the Bat-Hound.

Aztec – Possibly named after the Aztec civilization, Aztec is not a common moniker for children, making it a unique puppy name (except for the fact that it made our list of popular boy puppy names).

Max – Max is Latin for “greatest” and a popular baby boy name as well, making it another popular human name for “great” male puppies.

Byron – Byron is yet another human name, possibly coming from poet Lord Byron, famous for his wildness and debauchery. Byron is a terrific puppy name for any rambunctious pup.
