American pet owners are giving their fur babies much more human names in 2023. A new study looked at the naming trends among both dog and cat owners across the nation, finding that Luna and Charlie top the list of the most popular pet names nationwide.

This comes as no surprise to Cort, as both of his dogs have very human names - Charlie and Leo.

Among dog owners, Charlie beat out Cooper as this year’s top dog name, followed by Max, Lucy, and Bella. Meanwhile, Charlie topped Leo as the cat’s meow among feline pet owners. Max, Sophie, and Stella rounded out the top five for cats. Simply put, you’re probably going to run into several cute and furry Charlies if you’re taking a summer road trip this year!

Here in California, Lucy topped the list for dog names, while Luna came in number one for cats.
