What is the most popular pet name in Seattle?

December 19, 2017



Did you know if you get a pet in Seattle, you are legally required to register it with the city? Ok, now you learned something, but it's important to know because with all those registrations we get a very important piece of data - what people are naming their pets.

According to this seriously fun Google spreadsheet, the top names for pets in the city in 2017 out of 39,596 dogs, cats and livestock registered were Lucy, Charlie, and Bella.

While it's fun to look at the data and see how totally not unique the name of your animal is, scrolling all the way to the bottom of the list exposes some amazing, unique names given to some animal, somewhere in the city. 

Here are a few of the best:

  • Four dogs named 'Sounder'
  • Four dogs named 'Kitty'
  • 0 kitties named 'Dog'
  • Avril Lavigne (dog)
  • Artoo Dogtoo (guess)
  • Elon Meowsk (cat)
  • Charles Barkley (dog)

Have fun.
