This week, a website that connects dog owners with in-home pet sitters revealed its 2013 list of most popular dog names in the United States - with "Max" and "Bella" topping the list - after reviewing its database of more than 100,000 registered users, according to Today.

The pet-sitter website Rover.com revealed the top 10 male and female dog names based on its U.S. clients. After Max and Bella, the names Charlie, Buddy and Jack are the next most popular names for male dogs, with Lucy, Bailey and Daisy the following top choices for females.
"We know from surveys that dog owners think of their dogs as family members," Greg Gottesman, founder of Rover.com, told Today. "Turns out they don't name them the same. The top 10 dog names, male and female, don't overlap with the top 10 baby names."
In fact, only one name appears on both the top lists for dogs and humans: Chloe.
