Posted, a site dedicated to linking pet owners to veterinarians, combed through their database of 969,517 names of puppies born since January 1, 2014 to determine what the top 10 male and female puppy name of the year are.   The results?  Bella and Max topped the lists once again!

Each of the top three female names — Bella, Daisy and Lucy — have kept their status as top dog, while some names were less lucky. Molly and Sophie each fell one spot while Chloe plummeted two. The Cinderella Story of this year’s list is Luna, which jumped four spots since 2013; a trend attributes to the “Harry Potter” series.
