The top trending dog name is Reina which was up 1,073% in 2022 and the top trending cat name is Fig which was up 1,279%.
It’s no secret that Seattle is a foodie city which makes sense why we have so many food-centric pet names rising in popularity.
Some of those names for dogs include Kimchi (973%), Goji (673%), and Cheese (473%). For cats, you’ll find names like Fig (1,280%), Peaches (480%), and Bacon (380%).
Pet parents were also inspired by sports with Mariners-related names like Felix (87%) and Luis trending up in 2022.
People also got inspired by movies, with the name Batman trending up 780%. The name Magnolia is up 173% for dogs.
