Top Dog Names of 2016

From Twilight and Game of Thrones to Grey’s Anatomy, it’s no secret that pop culture provides us with an endless amount of inspiration for naming our furry friends.

But what dog names rank in the top 10?

DogVacay, the most popular pet sitting service in the U.S. and Canada with more than 35,000 vetted hosts booking millions of overnights a year, uncovered the top dog names in 2016, which you can see in the infographic below. Here are some of the interesting findings from this year's list:

13 out of the 20 names end with an "e."

Max, Chloe, and Buddy all appeared in this summer’s animated hit The Secret Life of Pets movie.

Literature continues to inspire more traditional names such as Daisy (Buchanan), Jack (Kerouac), Oliver (Twist) and Charlie (and the Chocolate Factory).

Even though Bella and Max top the list, interesting enough it's not a top name for celebrity dogs. Additionally, pet owners opted for traditional dog names versus naming their pets after famous celebrities (sorry, Beyonce.)

DogVacay found that New York loves the name Oliver, Los Angeles has the most Charlies, Bellas and Buddys and Chicago is home to a lot of Lucys.

The craziest dog names of the year include: Arlo Wafflepants, Avocado Nudleman, Bark Ruffalo, Cheese Sandwich and Jake from State Farm.
