What Is the Number One Dog Name of 2022?
(Rover) Your dog’s name is more than just what you call them. A name has significant meaning, and the names we choose for our dogs often reflect the things that matter most to us. Whether they showcase our passions and interests or reflect what’s happening in the world around us, 2022 saw a lot of new dogs, and (unsurprisingly) a lot of new dog names.
