2016 Popular Dog Names in Sydney

Find out what popular dog names have been gracing the street of Sydney. Did you dog's name make the list?

There is no question that Australians love their pets. There are an estimated 25 million pets in 63% of households according to the RSCPA. And what’s not to love. These little creatures bring a smile to our faces when they greet us every day at the front door. They make us laugh with their silly antics. They relieve stress when the day has gotten us down. Every day is a little better when we get to spend time with our favourite fur-family members.

To celebrate our love of all dogs in Sydney, Love That Pet Normanhurst scoured its medical records, and the records from all our sister vet clinics to find out what the most popular dog names of 2016. From a list of over 5,000 dog names we have found the top 50 names. We hope that this list will inspire a name for any future pets you may add to your home.
