Ireland’s Most Popular Puppy Names Revealed

Luna and Bailey have been announced as Ireland’s top choices in puppy names for the second year running.

 The survey was carried out by Irish-owned pet retailer and grooming studios, Petmania, who have just completed their annual analysis of the names of all the entries submitted to their hugely popular Puppy of the Year competition.

Irish language names have seen an upward surge in the past year, with many pet owners opting for Irish names for their precious pooches, including Púca, Síog, Céilí, Nollaig, Misneach, and Bán.

Names like Nala, Milo, and Daisy remain popular, while several pet parents also took inspiration from their favourite designer brands, going for glamorous names influenced by Dior, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton.

Many pups across the country have stars in their eyes, with celebrity names like Lady Diana, Stevie Nicks and Gerry Springer appearing on the long-list.

One outlier pup, the namesake of Colombian Narco-Overlord, Pablo Escobar, showed up on this year’s survey. There were, however, no signs that the infamous gangster is in danger of becoming an Irish puppy naming trend, with thankfully just one of the 1700 pups analysed bearing the notorious name.

Below is the list of the top-ten names for puppies up and down the country.

  1. Luna
  2. Bailey
  3. Teddy
  4. Bella
  5. Millie
  6. Toby
  7. Coco
  8. Cooper
