Check out these Cute
Masculine Dog Names!


The top 10 masculine dog names of 2007, according to VPI Pet Insurance, the nation's largest pet insurer (and Chase's personal pet insurer!) were:

boy dog names - dog facing head-on

  • Max
  • Buddy
  • Rocky
  • Bailey
  • Jake
  • Charlie
  • Jack
  • Toby
  • Cody
  • Buster

The list was compiled based on an analysis of VPI’s 450,000 insured pets. Max topped the list for the fifth consecutive year.

The interesting thing about this list is that most of the names are people names, not “traditional” dog names . Some of these names, in fact, are also on the Social Security Administration’s list of top baby names.

What does this say about us, and our pets?

According to Dr. Carol McConnell, vice president and chief veterinary officer for VPI, “When people consider their pet an integral part of the family, they are more inclined to choose a human name for it. The prevalence of pets with human names clearly reflects the growing human-animal bond.”

If none of these "tried-and-true" names strike your fancy, here are my favorite masculine dog names (and don't forget to check out our black dog names and female puppy names pages). There are tons more great names in these lists!
