Trending dog names UK
Hey, mate. Are you a dog lover like me? If so, you might be curious about what other Brits are naming their four-legged friends in 2023. In this blog, I’ll reveal the most popular dog names in the UK, and give you some tips on how to find your dream dog on PageAds.
Let’s start with the names. According to Rover.com, the top 10 names for both male and female dogs in 2023 are:
- Male: Milo, Teddy, Buddy, Alfie, Max, Charlie, Bailey, Archie, Oscar, Monty
- Female: Luna, Bella, Lola, Poppy, Coco, Ruby, Rosie, Daisy, Molly, Willow
These names are pretty standard and classic, aren’t they? They show how much we Brits adore our pooches. Some of them are also influenced by pop culture, such as Luna from Harry Potter, Oscar from The Oscars, and Coco from the Pixar film.
But not everyone sticks to the traditional choices. Some people like to get creative and original with their dog names. That’s why we see some fascinating trends in the data from Rover.com. For example:
- Mike is the hottest dog name of 2023, followed by Preston, Smokey and Mabli. Maybe some people are fans of Mike Tyson, Preston North End FC, Smokey Robinson or Mabli Jones?
- The triumph of the women’s football team in the Euros has inspired some dog owners to name their dogs after the players or the team. Alessia, Rachel and Lioness are among the new entries in the list. Fran Kirby and Beth Mead are also on the rise.
- The pandemic has also affected dog names. Some people have named their dogs after vaccines, such as Pfizer and Zeneca. Others have gone for luxury brands like Armani and Dior to treat themselves.
- Space-themed names have returned, thanks to NASA’s missions. Rover (how apt!), Apollo and Nova are some of the examples.
As you can see, there’s a lot of diversity and variety in dog names in the UK. But how do you pick a name for your own dog? Well, here are some things to think about:
- The personality and appearance of your dog. You might want to choose a name that suits their character or looks. For instance, if your dog is lively and fun-loving, you could name them Sparky or Fizz. If your dog is fluffy and white, you could name them Snowy or Marshmallow.
- The meaning and origin of the name. You might want to pick a name that has a special meaning or history for you. For instance, if you have Scottish ancestry, you could name your dog Angus or Skye. If you love literature, you could name your dog Shakespeare or Bronte.
- The sound and length of the name. You might want to pick a name that is easy to say and hear. For instance, avoid names that rhyme with common commands like sit or stay. Also avoid names that are too long or complex. A good rule of thumb is to stick to one or two syllables.
Of course, these are just some suggestions. Ultimately, the best name for your dog is the one that you like and feel comfortable with.
Now that you have some ideas for dog names, how do you find your ideal dog? Well, one way is to use PageAds, a platform that connects pet owners with breeders and shelters. PageAds lets you search for dogs by breed, age, location and more. You can also look through photos and videos of available dogs and contact the sellers directly.
PageAds is a brilliant way to find your perfect pet online. However, there are some things to watch out for before you make a purchase:
- Do your research on the breed and seller. Make sure you know what kind of dog you’re getting and what their needs are. Also check the reputation and reviews of the seller and ask for proof of health checks and vaccinations.
- Meet the dog in person before buying. Don’t rely on photos or videos alone. Go and see the dog yourself and interact with them. Make sure they are healthy, happy and well-socialised.
- Avoid scams and frauds. Don’t pay any money upfront or through unsecure methods. Don’t buy from sellers who ask you to send money abroad or who offer delivery services without meeting you first. By following these tips, you can ensure that you find a reliable seller and a healthy dog on PageAds.
