Choosing a name for your dog can be tricky. You want to choose a name that suits your dog’s personality, means something to you and most importantly is easy for you and your kids to call out. No one wants to sound silly when calling their dog’s name from across the park.

We’ve pulled together a round-up of all the names that are set to be popular this year. Remember, names date fast so it’s important to choose a name that you’ll grow to love as much as your puppy.

  1.    Gary – after the very popular ‘nice Gary’ cricket reference in recent months, we are anticipating to see a rise in dogs named Gary.
  2.     Belle – with the release of the new Beauty and the Beast movie this year, we predict that Belle may become more popular than the classic name Bella.
  3.     Donald – this could be a popular choice this year for fans of the controversial new president.
  4.     Ghost – Game of Thrones fans may want to name their dogs after Jon Snow’s legendary direwolf.
  5.     Brandy – cocktail based names have been around for decades and this year we predict that this sweet spirit will be a popular choice for pet parents.Screenshot 2017-03-22 13.00.26
  6.     Bruno – uptown funk may have lost it’s place in the charts but this classic retro dog name has not. We predict this name will be around for some time yet.
  7.     Lucy – a classic choice for a girly dog. This name will always be popular and we predict that it won’t be going anywhere in 2017.
  8.     Max – this name again has been popular in recent years. We predict many will go with the philosophy that if it ain’t broke don’t fix it and will choose this name for their fur baby.
  9.     Molly – another name that has been in the top 10 for decades, the trend for people names doesn’t seem to be going anywhere so we think that Molly will remain popular in 2017.
  10.  Rover – with more and more hipsters infiltrating pop culture we predict that this retro classic could make a comeback.
