Popular dog names

A recent study has shown that owners have a preference for more human names for their pets, choosing Sam or Charlie over Fido and Felix. Looking at over 50,000 pet names, researchers found that the most popular name for both cats and dogs was Poppy, followed by Alfie for dogs and Daisy for cats. The study shows a drastic move away from archetypal names - while Rover and Fido were both top 10 in the 1970's, they now appear at number 840 and 1,480, respectively.
