TOP 5 DOGGY NAMES IN IRELAND REVEALED BY PETMANIA

NOTABLE ENTRIES INCLUDED OPHELIA, THOR, ELVIS PUGSLEY AND CAROLINE!

 Ireland’s favourite pet retailer, Petmania, has revealed the country’s top five names for dogs and the results are somewhat surprising! Almost 500 pet parents took part in the research which was part of Petmania’s search to find their 2018/19 Puppy of the Year.

From extreme weather events, to our favourite programmes, notable doggy names included ‘Ophelia’, ‘Thor’, ‘Elvis Pugsley’ and even ‘Caroline’. However, the top five names for our canine friends were;

  1. Bella
  2. Alfie
  3. Cooper
  4. Milo
  5. Poppy

‘Roxy’, ‘Buddy’ and ‘Daisy’ all tied in sixth position with an equal amount of entrants.

Common trends amongst the entries saw pooch owners take reference from popular movies, characters and cult TV series such as ‘Thor’, ‘Harley Quinn’, Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s favourite character ‘Captain Holt’, ‘Dobby’, ‘Mulder and Scully’ and ‘McGregor’.

It would appear we like to give our four-legged friends more human names too, with the research also finding that pet parents used names such as ‘Molly’, ‘Jack’, ‘Lily’, ‘Nicky’, ‘Sheela’ and ‘Vera’.

The retailers ‘Puppy of the Year’ will receive a year’s supply of food and grooming, a puppy photography shoot, a two night stay in Enniskoe House, County Mayo and they will also feature within national marketing campaigns.

Petmania has 12 stores nationwide across Kilkenny, Carlow, Laois, Offaly, Limerick, Waterford, Wexford, Galway, Meath, Dublin and Kerry. The public can now help Petmania find Ireland’s Puppy of the Year by voting online at www.petmania.ie/vote
