The Top Dog Names of 2019 Have Been Revealed & Yes, Queen Elizabeth Is One of Them

What’s in a name? Well, when it comes to choosing a moniker for your dog, a lot. Thankfully, Rover (ya know, the pet sitting and dog walking service) decided to make the guesswork a little easier and just dropped a list of 2019’s most popular dog names. There are celeb names (Taylor Swift increased 400% over last year) and nods to Game of Thrones (the popularity of Arya Stark rose by 150%), as well as names for royal aficionados (Princess Diana was up 200%) and even food-inspired titles (people are naming their dogs Kale, but it’s not a top contender yet). No matter what your furry friend’s personality, we’re sure you’ll find a name for them on this list of the top dog names of 2019.
