Dog owners continue to name their best friend more typical pet names with Molly, Charlie, Max, Daisy all included in the top ten list.

That being said they are some usual and wonderful names out there with Lightening Mac Burrow, Lazy Daisy, Lady Diana and Snugglybuggly taking the top spot as the wackiest dog name.

RVN Veterinary Nurse, Roisin Foran said:

“The old reliable names such as Kitty, Tiger and Daisy, continue to pop up year after year, but it’s the zany, pop-culture and news-driven names that really grab our attention when they enter our clinic.”

The survey was conducted across 13 veterinary clinics over a 12 month period with 70,000 patients.
