Petfinder Shares the Most Common Names For Adoptable Pets

With its huge online database of adoptable animals, Petfinder has over 300,000 pets available and they've taken a look at those pets to see which names are most common. Now it makes sense that there's some overlap with the other list we've seen, especially since shelters may not take the time to get super creative for creatures they're trying to re-home elsewhere.

Holding the top spot for dogs is Buddy while Lucy reigns supreme for cats — see the full lists when you read more.
