It is an exciting time welcoming a new dog into your household. Unless your dog is a rescue dog with an already established name you will need to choose a name. Lets look at the most popular names for dogs...

Thank you for visiting the Play Fetch website. The site highlights on the joy that dogs can bring to your life, but many dogs aren`t fortunate enough to have a loving family. We are working with rehoming centres across the country to help them home our furry friends, please bookmark this website and come back soon to view the dogs that need you to give them the great life they deserve.

We all put lots of thought into naming our new puppy, we choose a dog name that reflects us and the dog (or what we want the dog to grow into). hopefully you are going to share many years with your new best friend so you should choose a great name for your dog.

At the end of the year various pet insurance companies release anonymous data regarding the pets with policies with them. One of my favourites highlights the top dog names at year end.

After gathering as many lists of dog names as I could find, I have compiled my top 100 dog names as at December 2010.

    I’ve always thought for a male BODIE was a cool name. For a female Sky. But whatever.

    what about Ralph? i have a pug named ralph and i think its a very cool name. also for a girl maybe Ellie? heres my list:


    also names to describe their personality. like jumpy. also if they like cookies (not saying you should feed your dog cookies) you could name it cookie.

    if you want something unusual maybe you could name them gods like Zeus.

    also you could name them animals like tiger.

    if you want a normal name try something like emma kate or lily

    Present dog is Tizer, because he’s a Lurcher / Jack Russell cross with stripes, so a bit like a Tiger, and is still, at 13, very fizzy.

    Last dog was Bandit because he had a black mask around his eyes and has a tendency to steal. Dalmation / Border Collie cross.

    Names to fit the dog. Both rescued dogs adopted as pups. Both wonderful.

    Glad to see we’ve always had at least somewhat uncommon dog names (none appear on the list), without having anything silly sounding… Bramble, Alfie and Frankie.
