What Are the Most Popular Dog Names?

Have you ever yelled the name Max at the dogpark and had several dogs come running to you? According to Vetstreet, Max is the most common name for male dogs. From German Shepherds to Yorkshire Terriers, the name Max reigns supreme.

The most surprising finding was the number one pick for female dogs.  What name do you think won that coveted spot?

Bella! Yes, the Twilight-inspired name was number one for each of the top ten breeds, and it’s a name that’s grown increasingly popular with humans too, coming in at number 26 on the list for most popular baby names of 2011.

Check out what other pets names made the list!
