2014 may go down in history as the year that the line between people and puppy names blurred into oblivion. According to the most popular boy dog name was Max. For female pups? Bella.

But that’s old news! Here are the names that will be trending in 2015:

10. Sawyer

The ideal name for an adventurous pup.

9. Jack

Jack has been a popular name for years (Full Disclosure: I named one of my dogs Jack) but it’s still a reliably cool name.

8. Hudson

Crazy popular in the human baby naming world, we look forward to seeing more canine Hudsons.

7. Finn

Masculine and trendy, follow Amanda Seyfried’s lead and use it for your new bundle of fur.

6. Emerson

Perfect for a puppy who’s too smart for his own good.

5. Bear

2014’s number 10 is a great name for your barrel chested, accident prone pup.

4. Puppy

You may scoff but Zac Efron did it, 2015 may be the year creativity ends.


3. Max

Versatile and incredibly popular, we still suspect Max is going to slide a little bit in the charts.

2. Kai

Trendy and cool, it also means “ocean” in Hawaiian, Aloha!

1. Cooper

We all know this is what you’re actually going to name your future Fido. we suspect Cooper is going to be being yelled all over dog parks in the year to come.

10. Elsa

Nope, this name isn’t going away anytime soon. We can’t just Let it GO!

9. Bella

The most popular female pup name of 2014 will see an unfortunate slide, mostly due to that crazy dog named Bella you always see at the dog park, ruining it for everyone.

8. Stella

After that Modern Family episode, we STILL want to chase a dog around screaming STELLA!!!

7. Quinn

It’s a little masculine, a little feminine, Quinn is the perfect name for a pup that isn’t above rolling in mud.

6. Sophie

Pretty much guarantees your pup will be both adorable and stylish.

5. Ivy

Ivy has been climbing the charts like crazy, could it be due to Beyonce?


4. Charlie

The trend of naming girls (both human AND canine) with names that have been traditionally reserved for boys is still going strong and we love it.

3. Aurora

The goddess of the dawn (and a disney princess) is a great name for your girl, especially if she particularly enjoys early morning walks.

2. Avery

Modern and a bit trendy, we love this name!

1. Lila

Pretty and more traditional, Lila (and similar names like Layla..etc) are becoming more and more popular, and we suspect they’ll come out on top in 2015.
