The U is for Unique

From the good people, or puppies, at, the top 10 most popular puppy names in 2012

Top 10 most-popular puppy names of 2012 -- male 

  1. Max
  2. Buddy
  3. Charlie
  4. Rocky
  5. Cooper 
  6. Bear
  7. Bently
  8. Duke
  9. Jack
  10. Toby 
Despite the misspelling, we were really excited about #5. In fact, since Couper is our Little Buddy, we were fairly excited about #2 as well.

We were, however, a little concerned about the spelling of the name Couper in the list. We have mentioned before the origin of the name Couper. Short recap, it is a derivation of Coupe, his name from his first house. But in the end, it is fine that the name on the list is Cooper, not Couper. It just means that the name is popular, but our's is a bit unique.

For fun, lets take a look at the 10 most popular girl puppy names from the same article:

  1. Bella
  2. Daisy
  3. Lucy 
  4. Molly
  5. Lola
  6. Sophie
  7. Sadie
  8. Chloe (which is also the No. 8 most-popular baby name, freakishly)
    (We see you, Illuminati.)
  9. Coco
  10. Maggie 
Fine names one and all. I especially like the nods to rock and roll in the names Lucy, Lola, Sadie, and Maggie.

However, if you have a chocolate, or even just a brown, female dog, you absolutely have to consider the name Godiva. To be honest, I was as shocked that Godiva wasn't on the female list as I was shocked that Co(u)per was on the male list.
