All cute names, but if you live in Louisiana the most popular name is Brees (after the amazing Drew Brees).

I wouldn’t have thought that my dog’s name was on here, we don’t normally run into many Sadies in Michigan.

Sadie is probably very common because the #1 dog in the country last year and the Westminster Best in Show winner was Sadie the Scottish Terrier.  🙂

Nothing wrong with people names for dogs 🙂 I have a Mountain Cur, a Black-and-Tan Coonhound mix and an ancient found Baglehound. They are Nero, Homer and Papa. None of their names are on the “popular” list.

I have a Jorja, Chester and now also a Tebow.   I was very undecided whether to get this new puppy and told myself that if the Broncos beat Chicago a few weeks ago that I would go get her and name her Tebow and by golly they came back to win that game.  Tebow is sound asleep on my lap.  🙂

I’ve got 2 Bostons Shania and Oscar and a Great Dane called Harlee.  I think you have to look at the dog and see what they are and if they like the name.  Despite what some people think they do care.

I once knew a tiny fluffy white Maltese Poodle called Fang. His owner thought it might help butch him up a bit.
