Choosing A Pet Name For 2017

Do you have a name for me?

Typically, the most popular and trendy pet names are picked based on events that occurred over the previous year and what will be coming in the future. If you’re looking to get or adopt a new pet this year check out our selection of names to be the most popular.

  • We saw so many celebrity lives lost this past year we expect to see plenty of pets named after some of our favorites: Prince, Ali, Bowie, Haggerty, Zsa Zsa, Princess Leia…
  • Are you a football fan? Try Rawls, Sherman, Wilson, Peyton, Love or LeBron?
  • Movie Fan? Big box-office splashes spark names like Poppy or Branch (Trolls), Duke, Chloe, Gidget or Max (The Secret Life of Pets), Belle or Beast (Beauty and the Beast), Pikachu or Ash (Pokemon Go), Dory (Finding Dory), Leila, Luke, Rex, Max, Chewie or Kylo (Star Wars), may the force be with you!
  • Politics has certainly played a major role in 2016: Clinton, Trump, Bernie, Bo, Sunny, why even Ken Bone would make a good selection.
  • Want something a bit more unique than the latest trend? Consider some of these: Bear, Saint, Bella, Buddy, Pinot, Charlotte, Max, Cooper, & Bailey.

When you have finally decided on the perfect name for your pet remember to get a nice shiny name tag for their collar and include your phone number!
