I found this interesting about how people name their dogs.
16% People keep the dogs/cat name when they adopt them from a shelter. (It's always better to change a shelter animal's name because “A NEW LIFE, A NEW NAME!” Dogs not so sure about cats relate their name to the past and its experiences.
68% Name that fits the dog’s appearance or personality. Lots of people named their pet after grandparents, parents, or other relatives.
15% Select names that they found inspirational.
10% Name that relates to their interest or hobbies.
10% Hate human names. Which I love!!!
