And The Most Popular Dog Name Is...

You won't guess this

Basically everyone wants a cat or a dog — assuming, of course, that they live in a city and work way too many hours to feasibly look after another living thing, so don't have one already.  We all spend our days thinking how great it would be if we could be going back to a fun little pet, and our weekends daydreaming about how much more exciting a walk to the pub would be if we had something on a lead or how much more enjoyable watching Netflix would be with something on your lap or making user accounts on BorrowMyDoggy.com. Like babies, everyone's got pet names in their heads — something amusingly human, something ironically pet-like and at odds with the breed you're interested in. It's all bants. 

 But imagine the embarrassment in the park if your dog shares a name with loads of other fellow pups. Now you don't have to worry as Healthy Paws Pet Insurance has looked into the most common pet names — cats and dogs, males and females, and this is what they are...

Interesting. Quite a Twilight vibe coming through on the top female names and Luna — potentially inspired by Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's uh-dorable baby girl. For the male lists, they're quite human-centric, save for Simba (a classic) or Loki, Tom Hiddleston's creepy character in Thor.
