Top 5 Most Popular Dog And Cat Names

black and white cat

We’ve heard some pretty interesting and funny pet names over the years.  From Boy and Girl for two cats to Delicious for a pig.

I know personally when I name a pet the name has to ‘come’ to me.  I can’t pre-name a pet before I get to know it.  It has to fit the pet and their personality.  If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time you know of our cat, Bob and the story on how we got him.  It took us SIX WEEKS to come up with that name; Bob.  Bob Cat.

So what exactly are the most popular names we’ve come across for both dogs and cats?
