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!
