#1 – Bella

We are not sure if this because Twilight is still very popular, or people just like the name, but Bella has been on top when it comes to dog names for a few years now. Meaning “beautiful” in Italian, it is a good name for your best friend.

Another name you don’t hear people naming their kids much anymore, Daisy is a youthful, happy name. It’s perfect for the social butterfly type that is just happy about life.

#10 – Sadie

Very popular the last several years, the name Sadie is starting to taper to off. It’s still a good choice though, if you are looking for a girlie name that isn’t “too sweet.” Sadie’s have a bit of spunk in them.
