As of recently, dog owners across the country are becoming more and more creative with their dog names. Instead of Jack, there’s Jager. Instead of Lexi, there’s Lilac. Instead of Toby, there’s Tyson. You get the gist.


Within this shift to more unique dog names, comes the food and drink-themed name trend. Given the rise in popularity of global food trends such as food porn, avocado toast and green smoothies, it is not surprising that dog owners are getting inspiration from food to name their furry friends.

Provided by the Food Network, here are a few recently popular culinary-inspired dog names. Future dog owners, take notes.

1. Olive


2. Snickers


3. Pumpkin


4. Kahlua


5. Sake


6. Nutmeg


7. Kale


These culinary-inspired dog names are definitely not normal walks in the park. One thing’s for sure though, your dog will be the most scrumptious one there.
