Australia’s most popular dog names are revealed – with some surprising inclusions

  • Top names Australians are calling their pet pooches in 2020 have been revealed
  • In top spot is Bella, while some unusual names included such as Buffy and Zeus 
  • The list of names were revealed by data from the New South Wales Pet Registry 

The most popular dog names in Australia have been revealed and while some may sound familiar there are a few surprising inclusions.  

Back in the number one spot is Bella – an old favourite having been the most chosen name to call a pet pooch in the state from 2015 to 2018.  

The name was ousted from the top spot in 2019 by Luna but this seemed to be a passing trend, with the name dropping down the 45th place in this year’s list.

The names at the top of the list are in order are Bella, Max, Molly, Charlie, Buddy, Jack, Lucy, Ruby, Coco, and in tenth spot Roxy, according to the New South Wales Pet Registry.. 

Out of the nearly one and a half million canines registers in NSW, more than 31,000 dogs have the name Bella. 

There were also some surprising names in the list – with more than 11,000 dogs sporting the name Bear and more than 6,400 sharing the royal name of Archie. 

Other interesting inclusions are Boof with about 4,500 pets having the name, about 3,500 being called Buffy, and about 3,300 being called Gizmo.

The names are included on the register as part of the microchipping process. 

Pet owners can then make a profile for their pooch on the NSW Pet Registry which will allow the animal to be easily returned if they wander off. 

Associated fees go towards funding animal shelters, off-leash dog parks, and council rangers.
