In a lot of ways, naming your dog is one of the most important things you do as a pet parent for your beloved fur baby. In addition to being a fun way to welcome your new furry family member, it gives your dog his identity and sets the foundation for a meaningful, lifelong bond between the two of you.

Every dog name has significance to his human, and as it turns out, a mutt’s moniker sometimes means something special to a lot of pet parents! While every pup is certainly one of a kind, there are some particularly popular pooch names you’re almost guaranteed to come across at every dog-park outing. We’ve put together a list of the top dog names, many of which are inspired by pop culture and even human-name trends.

Did your four-legged friend’s name make the list?
