MOST POPULAR PET NAMES

MOST POPULAR PET NAMES

Remember the days when pets had names that sounded like they belonged to animals? Fido. Rover. Scooby. Patch. Simpler times when bleatingly obvious names like Snow adorned the collars of white pets far and wide.

I myself had a cat called Fluffy (needless to say she was very fluffy), and another named Ginger - although she wasn’t ginger in colour at all… that’s a whole other story.  

But times have changed, and based on today’s naming conventions, it’s difficult to know if a proud parent is talking about their human child or fur-baby.

Personally I love the trend towards humanising the names of animals – with dogs in particular now rolling over to names reminiscent of great aunts’ and uncles’.

Recent data from Medibank Pet Insurance confirms my suspicions that the lines between people and pet names has become increasingly blurred. The following list could very well be found at the dog groomers just as easily as it could be in a school yard.
