2012's top puppy names
No. 10 female name: Maggie, male name: Toby
Maggie: This sweet moniker dropped one spot from last year's popular names list, but we're glad it's still hanging in there.
Toby: After falling out of the top 10 last year, the name Toby managed to sneak back onto the list. It had been in the top 10 every year between 2001 and 2010.
No. 9 female name: Coco, male name: Jack
Coco: Has this name's popularity spiked because of the dog-obsessed Coco in the E! reality series Ice Loves Coco? We're not completely sure, but we like to think so.
Jack: It's always been our dream to own two dogs named Rose and Jack. And bring them on a boat and (safely) recreate the Titanic dance scene. Come on, we know you've thought about it too.
No. 8 female name: Chloe, male name: Duke
Chloe: There's no denying that human names have become much more popular for animals in recent years. Chloe is down three spots in 2012, but we're sure this moniker will remain trendy for years to come.
Duke: Does this have anything to do with the Bush's Baked Beans dog? Who doesn't love those commercials?
No. 7 female name: Sadie, male name: Bentley
Sadie: This adorable name held on to its lucky No. 7 slot for another year. With a little more luck, it'll move up a spot or two in 2013.
Bentley: Men sure do love their car names, and the luxurious sounding Bentley is no exception.
No. 6 female name: Sophie, male name: Bear
Sophie: Are these canines prepping for a massive dog adaptation of the musical Mamma Mia? Hey, a girl can dream!
Bear: Naming one species of animal after another species of animal ... it's genius! This classic and clever name moved up one spot from 2011.
No. 5 female name: Lola, male name: Cooper
Lola: This cute name made the biggest chart hop of all the monikers on the top 10 list, moving up three spots from last year.
Cooper: A decade ago, Cooper was far from being considered a trendy dog name. But as celebrities like Anderson Cooper and Bradley Cooper gained popularity, so did the name Cooper for pets.
No. 4 female name: Molly, male name: Rocky
Molly: This adorable moniker was popularized by the patriotic American Girl doll years ago, but we still love it for our patriotic puppies.
Rocky: If you've got a big breed (like a Mastiff or a Great Dane), this name is perfect for your heavyweight champion. Also, how much fun would it be to have a Boxer named Rocky?
No. 3 female name: Lucy, male name: Charlie
Lucy: This is everyone's favorite Peanuts character, so it's no surprise that it's popular with the leash-and-collar set. Just make sure your pup doesn't take her name too much to heart and become the dog park bully!
Charlie: Do we detect a trend here? This name is especially funny if you have a brown dog and can call him Charlie Brown. Good grief, of course it's a little cheesy, but it's sure to get you some laughs at the dog park.
No. 2 female name: Daisy, male name: Buddy
Daisy: This stylish name is fashionable year in and year out — especially for people who own both ducks and dogs. Get it?
Buddy: Popularized by the much-loved series of Air Bud films, Buddy is a great moniker for your furry little buddy.
No. 1 female name: Bella, male name: Max
If you're at the dog park and shout "Max!" or "Bella!" and suddenly you have an entire brigade of excited canines charging at you, don't say we didn't warn you! These names took the top spots again this year — and not only for dogs. Max and Bella are the No. 1 names for kittens too.
Max: We just love the simple and sweet ring of Max for our adorable puppies.
Bella: Since Twilight's Bella sank her teeth into this list a few years back, we can't imagine she'll let go anytime soon!
