As a pet owner, the chances that you consider your pet’s name to be the best are pretty high. Although the best, is it the most popular?

An Olympia-based website,Ā Rover, has sorted its database of over a million pets to narrow down the most popular pet names in the country.

The top names seemed to be pretty standard, with Bella being the top female dog name, Max as the top male dog name, Luna as the top female cat name, and Oliver taking the spot for top male cat name.

As the rankings continue, names get progressively sillier. According to the site, there was a 28% increase in Game of Thrones-inspired names, and a 100% increase in pets being called Lizzo.Ā The most popular musician names for dogs were Taylor Swift and Khalid, with Madonna coming in third.

The weed craze has also been reflected in pet names, with a 600% increase in the name Budder, a 116% increase in the name Dank, a 93% increase for Indica, and a 62% increase in the name Kush.
