Selecting a name for your dog or cat is a big responsibility! And quite frankly, there are not nearly as many books or articles about pet names as there are for baby names.

The folks at Animal Friends Pet Insurance went through over 600,000 records to find the most popular pet names (so far) for 2017, and they are below. Interesting to note, that for the first time in a while, Alfie has been knocked off the top of the heap for Bella. Pop Culture also played a part this year, with David Bowie and Prince taking a huge jump in the polls, which were also determined by geographical locations. Is your pet's name one of the most popular?
