The list of top dog names of 2016 has been revealed, and it seems like the classic names are still the most popular!

It looks like owners are giving their dogs much more human names, while the site rover.com has noted many people this year have been inspired by popular culture in deciding the name of their new dog. According to the site, 53% of owners named their dogs after TV, film, or book characters or a celebrity.

One of the new additions to the list is 'Luna', meaning the Harry Potter-themed names are still popular, while it's also the name of the This Morning puppy.



On the boy's side, Max remains the most popular name for a second year in a row.

Powerful women also influenced pet names this year, with dog names inspired by well-known women climbing 13 per cent. Coco Chanel, Betty White and Eleanor Roosevelt all rose in the rankings this year.
