Website announces most popular dog name of the decade

Posted at 6:44 PM, Dec 04, 2019

The website My Dog's Name announced on Wednesday that Bella was the most popular dog name not only for the year 2019, but the entire 2010s.

Bella has held the top spot as the most popular female dog name for the entire decade, the website said.

The website analyzes data from its users who selected their favorite dog names when searching.

"Bella skyrocketed to the top spot following the popularity of the Twilight books and movies 10 years ago," says Kyle Larson, founder of My Dog's Name. "But what's fascinating is that the name is still the number one pick today, long after the mania of the Twilight series has subsided."
