From helping save a pooch with a jar stuck on his head, catching a roaming rooster, or helping return a wayward toucan safely home, neighbors have used Nextdoor to save, help, and celebrate pets in thousands of neighborhoods across the country.
This week, we’re joining them in celebrating our furry friends. We took a look at America’s favorite pet names from across the United States, using aggregate data provided by Nextdoor members in their profiles. So, did your pet’s name make the list of of the most popular pet names in America? Find out below.
Bella reigns supreme this year as the most popular pet name in the country. Lucy and Max follow closely, with Bailey, Molly, and Buddy making the list. When broken down by pet type, Bella wins the top spot for both cats and dogs, but the results differ from there. For birds, Kiwi makes the top of the list. Thumper is the most popular name for rabbits. For hamsters, Oreo is the favorite. And, not surprisingly, Nemo is at the top of the list for fish!
