What do you hear the most?
I hear:

Ranger
Lady

maybe Princess.

What happened to Fido, Butch, Fluffy, Rex, all those names? I actually do know a dog named Rex, though...
I dont even hear Toto or Lassie or anything...maybe too cliche.

Thought I'd add more to it. Too bad I can't change the title of the post.
What names for dogs do you like the best? Here's my list for pugs and bulldogs because I want one of each one day.

PUG NAMES

Boy:
Chopper
Max
Bruce

Girl:
Daisy
Ginger
Mariposa


BULLDOG NAMES


Boy:
Pierre
Chopper
Meatball
Bob


Girl:
Daisy
Ginger
Sophie
Mariposa



Some overlap....


What are your favorite breeds/What kind of dog would you like to have but don't?

Mine are:
pug
bulldog (they're all cute!)
boston terrior
boxers
and of course, my own dog. I would like to have at least one of each in my lifetime. They're very expensive, not often in shelters, and can have a lot of medical (ie: breathing) problems, at least the pugs and bulldogs. Unsure about the other breeds.

Where I live, hands down the most popular dog name is Bella. I wish I knew that before I named my Belle.

My fav breed is labrador...but I'm kind of bias because that's all I've ever owned. But I'd like to own some other breeds in the future.

Bear, Daisy, Bella, Buddy, Cleo, Chloe, Lady, Max, Sam, Nicky/Nikki/etc,

Rose/Rosie is the favorite of my family..... I've personally had a Rosie and now have a Rose, my grandma has Rose (Rosie is the nickname) the yorkie and my uncle has Rose the plott hound. So that's 3 Roses in our family right now. People have had more over the years.

Bella is probably the most common overall though.

Max and Lucy are the most common around here. I work in a dog grooming shop, and one day we had 5 lucy's in for a groom.It was crazy, we would have to call them "lucy the bulldog" "Lucy the min schnauzer" "Lucy the lab" ect lol. I can think of at least 6 Max's I know.

I would say Tucker is also a pretty common name around here.

As for names I have.
Not to many. I for some reason have always loved the name "rocks" for a dog.

Other then that, I tend to name animals with people names(Current pets are Marley, Mike and Eugene then there is Blaze). Blaze is one of the only pets we have had with a non human name.

I would pick uncommon human names as well. I wanted to name the cat Cathy. boyfriend hated it, so Marley it was.

Dogs i would probably name Steve, kyle, Matt, john ect like really common human names lol im werid

As for breeds I want.
German Shepherd.
Rough collies.
Toy poodles.
Doberman.

And a few others intrest me alot. But those four are set in stone that i will own one day.

My favorite breeds are Yorkshire Terrier, Maltese, Rottweiler, Cane Corso and Standard Poodle, i would love to own another Yorkie or a Maltese!

Best name I ever heard belonged to a golden colored, low-to-the-ground mutt at the shelter: Pancake. Made me laugh every time I walked by his kennel.

I gotta be honest...I don't know a lot of people with dogs around here. My aunt and uncle have a Bandit, my minister has a Moses and a Frankie. I grew up with a series of dogs named Lady at my grandparents' ranch in Colorado, and my grandparents here in LA had a Marky and a Duchess. I've had a Cameo (Cammy), a Brutus, an Alvin, and a Clifford. Cameo was the only one I named...the rest were resuces who came with said monikers.

I also had a cat named Spot.

I agree that I hear a lot of the above names a lot. This thread reminded me of one time at my work. We have 3 exam rooms and at one time every room had a Bailey in it. Different breeds, different sizes, different genders, lol. Like Tankster, all of my dogs have human names. Currently, I have Landen and Mia. The dog I want to adopt at the moment is named Ferris. I think that is a cool name.

I meet a lot of dogs named 'Chewie'; that's a great name, but what's weird is they're all different breeds, including one Shih-Tzu. I guess the hair kind of makes sense, but I just think Chewie should be a big dog.

I've met several English Bulldogs named Winston, and Clyde. Winston makes perfect sense, but I have no idea where Clyde comes from, or why people associate it with Bulldogs.

A bit off topic but my grandparents had a dog when I was growing up (several but one in particular) and they couldn't think of a name when they got him. When calling for him everyone would say "Hey you" and the name stuck. It took me years to realize his name was Hey You; I just assumed it was an actual name, Heyue. Kids!!

Wow, I did NOT know there were so many Daisy's-never knew dog named Daisy before.
Bella, though, IS really common, come to think of it.

I know of a couple named Cody, and Bailey, too.

I love when someone has two dogs of the same breed and name them something like Bonnie and Clyde, **** and Span, or something funny like that. Not that I know any. I met a pug awhile ago with a great name, too bad I can't remember it....
