The top dog names of 2018 have been announced, and we're howling in approval.

The fur fanatics over at, which claims to be the largest network of pet sitters and dog walkers, announced the names after pouring over their database of more than 1 million dog names. While most of the names are fairly traditional, the site also highlights some up-and-coming trends.

Much like babies, dogs saw an increase in retro names like Willie and Pearl, which are up 17 percent over last year. Other fun trends? Both royal and Fortnite names are also becoming much more popular, in addition to food and booze-related names. Cheers to the pups, indeed!
