Dog Names You Should Name Your Dog This Year

Trending Dog Names

Looking for boy dog names in 2020? Just like baby names, dog names rise and fall in popularity. The number of dogs named after “Frozen” characters rose 900 percent the year after the movie came out, so don’t be surprised if your dog meets an “Olaf” in obedience class. Names from the “Twilight” movies and “Game of Thrones” have also risen over time, so expect to meet boy dogs named “Ghost,” “Tyrion,” or maybe “Stark.”

Food and drink are favorite themes, too. There was a 37 percent rise in food-themed names from 2013 to 2014, so expect to run into a “Jameson,” “Bud” or “Java” on your daily walks. And at least 20 percent of dogs have human names like “Edward” or “Jesse.” Sports figures are a perennial favorite; the year Derek Jeter retired from the New York Yankees, “Jeter” was in the top 10 names. If you’re looking for a more original name, try our list of unique names for dogs. 

Popular culture is always a trending theme for dog names. After the movie “Frozen” was released, there was a 900 percent rise in dogs named for the movie’s characters, so your girl dog might end up with more than one training classmate named “Elsa.” Names from The “Twilight” movies, “Star Wars,” “Game of Thrones” and other icons of pop culture are always coming in and out of style. Don’t be surprised to encounter puppy playgroup pals named “Bella,” “Rey,” or “Arya.”

Nature-themed dog names are in the increase, with 78 percent more dogs named for nature themes, like “Daisy” or “Panda.” Food- and drink-themed names have also increased by 37 percent over the last few years, with dog girl names like “Latte” or “Marzipan.” If you’re looking for a more original name and want to steer clear of popular names, try out these unique dog names.
