In line with the celebration of National Dog Day on August 26th, pet insurance company Trupanion has released the top 10 dog names for 2020 based on its database of nearly 530,000 insured pets.
The rankings are as follows:
Luna ― the top dog name in 2019 ― remains on the first spot this year, followed by Charlie and Bella, which switched places from last year’s rankings. Bailey is on the fourth spot just like last year, followed by Cooper and Daisy, which both climbed up in the rankings. Last year, Cooper was on the sixth spot, while Daisy was on the eighth place.
From the fifth place in 2019, Lucy fell to the seventh spot this year, followed by newcomer Milo. Max also fell down the rankings. The 2019 seventh placer is now on the ninth spot, followed by another newcomer Coco. 2019’s ninth and tenth placers, Bear and Oliver, respectively, didn’t make it to the top 10 this year.
