Is your dog part of the "cool kid's club," I guess we will find out with this. Here are the most popular dog names in the state on Illinois, for 2023. WAG

The dogs are an extension of our families for sure. So when it comes to naming them, there's a "trendy" thing that gets mixed in. What do we see on a Netflix special, what was that dog's name on that viral video? We as a country find our influences from a variety of locations.

My dog's name is Oakley. It wasn't my choice, and at first I was kinda like..."ok, interesting." But it's super unique, and I love it.

So what about the rest of the state of Illinois, what makes the top 10 list? Let's take a look:

1. Bella

2. Charlie

3. Max

4. Luna

5. Coco

6. Lucy

7. Cooper

8. Daisy

9. Lola

10. Buddy

That's quite a neat list, it's kinda all over the place. Charlie, Max and Buddy, I see them as old school pet names that are always around. Bella, Luna, Coco I pretty unique in their own right.

The folks at PetHelpful remind and "help" us with naming a dog. Keep it, simple. Two syllable names work the best for man's best friend. It's easy for your dog to recognize, and respond to. So I'm guessing, Orenthal James Simpson isn't a great dog name, BUT O.J. would work just find. Got it.
