POLL: What’s Your Dog’s Name?

Tell us your dog's name and upload photos of your best friend on the article.

We love our dogs at Patch. Our staff meetings often feature sharing of photos and discussions about our four-legged friends.

Nearly all of our dogs -- Jake, Chloe, Nell, Henry, Annie, Roxie and Goose -- were rescues. They were returned by owners who couldn't care for them, but are now living in loving homes. In fact, we can’t imagine our families without them.

Needless to say, we’re suckers for dogs and dog stories.

That’s why our ears perked up when we read about the latest list of most popular dog names, according to the Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. and Petfinder.com.

The final list for 2011 was the same as the previous year.

Bella, Bailey, Max, Lucy and Molly were the top five with Buddy, Daisy, Maggie, Charlie and Sophie the rest of the top 10.

We want to know: What’s your dog’s name? We also want to see your dog photos. Upload photos of your best friends to this article.

I don't remember the rest of the names, but I do remember the show. I, too, have 'kids' named after an old TV show. I have 2 mice named Lucy and Ethel. Needless to say, they are constantly getting into trouble.

I'm just happy I didn't name my dog Roland

We have Porter. He is a rescue dog from a virginia kill shelter and because of his experiences as a pup, he has severe separation anxiety that has required us to change our lives. We love him though. Other than that, he is the best dog!

Our dog is named Giacomo, but we call him Jack, too, which is the name he knew from his previous family. He is a rescue from the Animal Rescue League of Boston who saved him from a life of abuse, neglect and cruelty. The family who adopted him named him Jack, but returned him to the ARL after one year because they could not care for him. We thought it best to keep the name he knew, but accentuated it with a family Italian name. He responds to both Jack and Giacomo and more importantly knows he has found his lifetime family.

One of the reasons I love the North Shore, especially Marblehead is that it is such a dog-friendly town,; they really are the best of us! My granddogs are Grady and Stanley.

Beast is our pup - we live with our parents and they have Phoenix and Flame (Beast's parents!). Beast often works side by side and has visits from another Chelmsford pup and fellow service dog (and best friend) named True (as seen above in the photos).

I have" Juliette", a twelve year old Irish Soft coated Wheaten Terrier, born in Paris and the sweetest dog and "Gracie", my three year old Westie from a wonderful breeder in Seattle Washington. Gracie is spunky, cute, and so smart! What a combination and the two play and play! If Gracie gets the chance, she escapes, visits the police station and has the whole neighborhood out looking for her!

Hi Diane and Krista.....I have two basset hounds here in South Peabody and am hoping for a new litter sometime early this spring.
Anthony M November 27, 2012 at 05:01 PM
My dogs are named Cyril, one who is proud and lordly, and Calypso, one that is beautiful on the outside but with something hidden within. Both names were taken from Greek Mythology to match the personalities.
