Most Popular Dog Names of 2020

2020 is OVER!

Although quarantine has been rough for most people, our pets however, seemed pretty happy to hangout with us all day (and make occasional appearances during Zoom meetings). Dog adoption rates increased drastically during quarantine when non-pet owners decided to bring home a new fur-friend to keep each other company. Cool new pups means cool new names!

Thanks to Rover's database of over a million dogs, they were able to dig up 2020's top names for male and female dogs in the United States. The year 2020 inspired some newly trending dog names too, including: Kobe, Lizzo, Keanu, Kanye, Pinot Noir (quarantine vibes) and Mando (from The Mandalorian).
