Gone are the days when dogs would be called Lassie or Fido. In countries like the US and UK, dog owners are giving their pets trendy middle class baby names like Bella, Charlie and Ben. These findings have emerged from a study conducted by the UK’s popular online insurance company protectyourbubble.com, which has insured some 80,000 dogs in the last 12 months. It is interesting to note that names like Millie and Daisy are part of the top 100 names in the UK for babies and dogs alike. And one in every 20 people take the naming of their pet so seriously that they change it after a few weeks feeling that it doesn’t suit the dog’s character or doesn’t roll off the tongue properly.
