10 Most Common Dog Names

When we adopted our black lab two years ago, my husband was really into watching spaghetti Westerns. He had become fascinated with the western Django, which originally was a 1966 film starring Franco Nero. Now, of course, when you mention Django, most people think about Jamie Foxx.

But I just think of my best furry friend who we brought home from North Shore Animal League one brisk November day back in 2010. Although she is a girl, we named her Django.

At the time, most people didn’t even know how to pronounce her name. Just drop the D, I’d say. Strange choice for a beautiful female puppy? Sure, but we’ve never been one for convention.

Yet once Jamie Foxx’s Django took off, there have been quite a few people naming their puppies Django. Who knew?

Like with babies, most pet owners try to give their puppies a unique name, but there are many who prefer tried and true names for their dogs. Some monikers are more common than others, and they go way beyond the typical Fido.
