Celebrity dogs names

USA is known to share an intense amount of love for their dogs. In fact, dogs have been around most people’s lives that they are already considered family. As such, you can see why most dogs have human-appropriate names.
The newer generation is now opting for adopting dogs rather than making a family of their own. Thus, more and more pet owners are now treating their dogs as though they are humans.

However, this has brought down classic dog names on the list. It came to the point that the most classic names like “Fido” and “Rover” are officially kicked out of the list.
Nevertheless, 88% of male dog names are considered human-appropriate. While 99% of female dogs’ names are deemed human-appropriate. However, the combined top 25 names on both genders would result in a whopping 100% human-inspired names.
