  • 10% of all dog names were inspired by pop culture (Hunger Games names up 19%, Harry Potter names up 10%, and Star Wars names up 5%)
  • After human names, food and drink comes in as the third most popular dog name category. 6% of names fall into this category with names like Ginger, Pepper, Peanut, Guiness, Brandy, and Whiskey.
  • 1 in 20 pet parents have social media accounts for their pets.
