The Top 10 Most Popular Dog Names in Iowa
When it comes to naming your dog, some owners get incredibly creative, while others might stick with the classics. For every Max or Lucy you run into, you'll also find Bark Twain, Mary Puppins, or Snoop Dog. My family has a dog named Lola, which I gave to her about 11 years ago. I originally wanted to go with Layla because of the Eric Clapton song but Lola seemed to stick and she's been with us ever since.
According to Pet Helpful, when it comes to naming your dog, less is more. Supposedly, you want to try and stick to a two-syllable name, which allows you to pronounce the name quickly and helps get their attention faster. Pet Helpful also believes that dogs appear to respond better to names that have sharp-sounding consonants. For example, names that include the letters P, K, or D.
