Now that we know what the most popular baby names of 2015 were, it's time to find out what the most popular choices were for our furry friends.

The list of top dog names of 2015 has been revealed, and we're surprised by how many of these names overlap with the most popular baby names list!

There's definitely a trend for people to give human names to their pets. While only 19.88 percent of dogs had human names in 2013, that number increased to 49 percent this year. We really hope there's no confusion if a family member or a friend has the same name as the dog...

Max and Charlie, two of the most popular names for baby boys born in 2015, were the most popular names for male dogs. The classic Buddy came third, followed by Cooper and Jack.

For female dogs, the most popular choices were Bella and Lucy, which also featured in the 100 top baby names of 2015. Sadie, Sophie and Chloe were also in both lists.

Dog owners have also been taking inspiration from pop culture, especially from The Hunger Games trilogy. In fact, Hunger Games inspired names like Effie and Katniss are more popular than Harry Potter and Star Wars names like Luna and Luke.

Other popular names include Piper, from Orange is the New Black, and Cookie from Netflix series Empire.
