One of the toughest, but most fun things about getting a new dog, is naming them. Sometimes people name them after food, relatives, former pets, movie characters, sports figures, and more. It’s an important decision because most likely, you’ll be calling that name a lot. Whether it’s because it’s time to eat, or they’re chewing on your favorite shoes, it’s a name you’ll be using many times a day.

But what are the most popular names of 2023? Hepper, a company that makes modern pet furniture, and provides everyday resources for cats, dogs, and their parents, put out the list. They say the list is based on popularity, as well as their preferences.
