Lotus, Grumpy, Rainy: Top & Trending 2019 Dog Names in Seattle

As the year wraps, our inbox's are flooding with "The Best of," or "The Most Popular's" of 2019, and we have to admit - this is our FAVORITE one!

Seattle-based, the world's largest network of pet sitters and dog walkers, has just released its seventh annual report of the year’s most popular dog names.

Although they have a list of most popular names nationally, we had to take a closer look at Seattle's (which to be honest, it looks almost identical to the national list). You can see that list below, but first - we wanted to highlight some fascinating bullets Rover found in looking at PNW dog names this past year:

  • Dogs named Zen have increased by 400%, and Lotus by 300% (Seattle yogis, anyone?)
  • Dogs named Sunny have increased by 38% and dogs named Rainy by more than 230%
  • The #1 trending dog name in Seattle is Grumpy (!!)
  • Nature names are trending with Timber (up 87%), Cedar (up 25%), Juniper (up 62%), Summit (up 40%) and Rainier (up 83%)
  • Dogs named Blaze (-56%) and Smokey (-57%) are down, maybe due to devastating recent wildfires in the area?
  • Dogs named Sonic have increased 200%
  • Dogs named Boba have increased more than 110%
