Today, Rover announced its annual list of most popular pet names drawn from users of its online service. Most of the list, which includes cats and dogs, are classic run-of-the-mill pet names—”Daisy” and “Max” for dogs and “Luna” and “Leo” for cats. But some of the more unconventional names are no doubt a reflection of the times. This year, for the first time, “Dr. Fauci,” “Britney Spears,” and “Elon Musk” made the cut. And it seems like a lot of dog owners watch The Mandalorian, because “Grogu” was the number one trending name this year. Other trending names sound like a star-studded red carpet event. “Doja Cat,” “Dua Lipa,” “Aretha Franklin” for cats and BTS-inspired dog names all increased in popularity this year. Unfortunately, people also thought it was a good idea to name their pets after cryptocurrencies like “Doge” and yes, “Bitcoin.”
