Popular dog and cat names by US State

Here at TrustedHousesitters, there’s nothing we like more than delving into the nitty gritty of our wonderful pet people community. For National Pet Month in May, we dived in (snouts first) into the most popular dog and cat names, plus some of the most exciting - and unique! - pet names in the United States.

Our study analyzed over 50,000 pet names registered on the TrustedHousesitters platform, sorting them by popularity, region and pet type. Looking at the thousands of pet names registered at the time of data analysis in 2023, we can reveal the pet names owners are loving across the US, and cultural trends across each state.

Is the name of your pet or a pet you’ve been sitting here? … Not just in the USA either, let’s see if there a popular name theme throughout our community.

Names with pics would be PAWFECT … all pets … :dog: :heart_eyes_cat: :horse: :pig: :rabbit:
