Would you name your dog Waffles? It seems plenty of people would because new research finds that food-related pet names are on the rise. A report from Rover.com looked into the most popular dog names of 2018 using data on more than a million dogs and finds that 5% of all dog names are food related.
Brunch foods seem to be favorites, they’re up 12% from 2017, with names like Biscuit, Cinnamon, Muffin, and Waffles topping the list. Other food-inspired names on the rise include Couscous, Crisco, Cheetos, Pasta, and Ramen. And alcohol-related names are trendy, too.
The most popular boozy-themed monikers are Whiskey, Porter, Guinness, and Brandy. But one libation-linked dog name that’s on the decline? Rosé, which is down 44% this year.
