Top Dog & Cat Names of 2020
What a year!
The year 2020 will likely be remembered as the year of the pandemic. But it also brought thousands of new puppies and kittens into our homes, and as part of our families, as we looked to them for comfort and companionship.
Since the start of the pandemic, Trupanion has noticed an uptick in COVID-related pet names. Since March, people welcoming new pets in their home are giving them names to match the moment with names that include Corona, Rona, Covi, and even COVID. Pet owners have also given a nod of approval to Dr. Fauci as they have started naming their favorite furry friends, Fauci, a new trend since the start of the pandemic.
This prompted us to take a deeper dive into the most popular dog and cat names of 2020.
