Most popular dog names in 2014

Michael McPhee

Just like with baby names, pop culture influences what we call our furry companions.

Rover.com, which connects dog owners with local dog sitters (finding them vacation homes for when their people go on their own vacations), surveyed site users across the country to see what the most popular dog names were in 2014.

The survey found that there were almost 200 percent more “Game of Thrones” names this year versus 2013, and 900 percent more names from the movie “Frozen,” which came out last year.

“Orange is the New Black” had some influence, too: Piper was one of the Top 10 pop culture names for dogs.

On the music side, Bruno Mars lent his moniker to many pups.

But food names, like Coconut, Peanut and even Kale, were popular in 2014 too.
