With under two weeks left in 2016, so many have already weighed in on their favorite albums, music videos, books, articles, foods, and films of the year. By this point, what facet of everyday existence could possibly remain to be collected and ranked in list format? Dog names, of course!

According to Rover.com, which calls itself “the nation’s largest network of pet sitters and dog walkers,” Milwaukee seemed to favor human names for pooches in 2016. Rover’s data indicates the most popular names for male dogs in Milwaukee are Charlie, Max, Buddy, Cooper and Tucker. The city’s five most popular female dog names are Bella, Lucy, Daisy, Bailey, and Molly.

Some other data about Milwaukee dog name tendencies Rover sent us:
• The name Lambeau is up 17 percent from last year
• Chopper is up 8 percent in 2016, but Harley is down 16 percent from last year
• Alcohol-related names are gaining popularity in Milwaukee, with Guinness up 80 percent, Bourbon up 35 percent, and Whiskey up 12 percent between 2015 and 2016

How did Rover obtain this data? Is it accurate? Shit, man. This is a post about dog name trends. Relax.
