The Name Game: Choosing a Name for your Dog

Are you getting a new puppy and just can't think of a name? Here are the top 12 male and female dog names of 2007. Max is the top name, so I guess it does make sense that there are three dogs named Max at play group.
  1. Max -- Molly
  2. Buddy -- Bella
  3. Jake -- Lucy
  4. Bailey -- Maggie
  5. Rocky -- Daisy
  6. Charlie -- Sadie
  7. Jack -- Chloe
  8. Toby -- Sophie
  9. Cody -- Bailey
  10. Buster -- Zoe
  11. Duke -- Lola
  12. Cooper -- Abby

If you want your pup to have a unique name, try naming him after one of his character traits (Spot or Cocoa) or maybe after something your lil guy really likes (Teddy Bear).

Also think of a historical figure (Leopold or Beatrix) or an actress in your favorite play (Juliet).

Try taking a word that describes your pup and translate it (Sweetie is BonBon in Italian, or Kiss is Bisou in French).

Take a name from your favorite sport (Becks) or chose a name from something you are interested in (Neptune).

How did you think of your puppy's name?

And I thought I was being unique with Lola! Sherman just looked like a Sherman & Penny came to us as Penny.

Lola was almost Mabel or Stella, but her current name fits her perfectly.
