Most popular dog names here? Not Fido...

TUCSON - Sorry, Max, you may be the most popular male dog name across the country, but for Pima County residents, it's all about the Buddies and the Bellas.

Through a computerized tally of more than 105,000 current dog licenses through Pima Animal Care Center, it's clear that collectively we are partial to using human names for our pets, instead of names like Snowy, Chips, Fluffy or Rascal that have more to do with color, food, coat or temperament.

Of the roughly 48,300 male dog names, Buddy topped the list with 1,086 entries, with Max and Charlie rounding out the top three. Bella, like the adoption center alumna featured here, topped the list of the more than 56,800 female dog names, with Daisy and Lucy trailing.

Whatever you name your pet, Pima Animal Care has many to choose from so come see the selection!
