The American Kennel Club keeps a list of the year’s most popular and trendy dog names to help you “get off to the perfect start with your new pup,” who will be named in the manner of an upper-middle-class suburban child: Finn, Echo, Lilly, Bowen, or Nova. Print it out, tear it up, and recycle the pieces. The best source on the internet for extremely good and real dog names — Repressed Childhood, Alan Rickman’s Voice, Assthetic — is the Twitter account @RealDogNames.
Now those are some real names you can definitely imagine calling your beloved pet several times each day.
Get out of here, Sawyer, Dixie, and Emerson. Get over here, SCREAMING
You’re a good boy.
