Almost one in 10 dog owners confessed to accidentally calling their child or partner by their dog’s name from time to time! In fact, our study of 2,000 dog owners found striking similarities between what we name our babies, and what we name our dogs. 11 of the top 20 dog names from our poll are also on the Office of National Statistic’s most popular baby name lists. For Butcher’s dogs this varies with only 2 of the top 20 in the list!

Our research found that people’s childhood dogs tended to be named after physical traits such as their colour, or their deposition. 30 years ago, there was a clear line drawn between dog’s names and people’s names where you would seldom hear of a dog named Ruby or Molly, but now these are among the most popular names for dogs according to our competition.
