Are you in the top 20 this year?

I posted this in March for last year’s list and I thought it was fun so I wanted to ask again for 2012. This time the list is from a different source and a different format but remarkably similar to the one I used last time. If you want to see the article... Most Popular Puppy Names of 2012

We named our pup Ella...so pretty close to Bella, but not quite. We actually didn't consider any of those 2012 names. We also considered Adele, Zola, and Jewel.

I have a Buddy...he was almost a Simba, though! Every once in a while now I'll joke that we should have named him Marley because my goodness the trouble he can cause.

Yes, our Toby made the list and the popularity of his name is what led me to insist our puppy not be in the top 20. Hubby was intent on two very popular dog names, until Toby's ophthalmology appointment when there were 3 Toby's in the waiting area! We settled on Yogi- hope it remains a little less used!

But what great names they are...some of my favorites.

Didn't see Woodrow / Woody on the list anywhere...

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

Nope, although I LOVE the name Charlie and that was originally my first choice for our puppy's name...we have decided to go with Champ!
