Top dog names of 2017 revealed, including a new trend!

My Dog’s Name, an online resource for finding dog monikers, has announced the top dog names of 2017.

It also revealed an interesting trend: a sharp increase in Star Wars-themed names!

With the release of The Force Awakens and the new film The Last Jedi coming out in December, Star Wars names have seen double-digit increases. Princess, Chewy and Finn in particular are the fastest-rising names related to the series.

As the year draws to a close, Finn – the name of the former storm trooper who joins the fight against the First Order – is up 91 percent since 2016.

That wasn’t the only surprise on the list. Tried-and-true favorites like Bella, Max and Buddy still top the chart, but a number of newcomers have exploded in popularity. For example, the names Milo, Willow and Archie are on the list for the first time.

The results are based on the search selections of the 3.2 million new dog owners who have used the site so far this year.
