The name Bella was good enough for the heroine of the popular Twilight book and movie franchise and apparently it's good enough for thousands of dog owners too. They made it the most popular dog name of 2013, a survey says.
Max, a standard-bearer in the annals of dog names, tops the list of names for male dogs. But with the total number of female dogs (56%) in the survey outdistancing males (44%), Bella takes the overall crown in the survey, conducted by Rover.com.
The site, which connects dog owners with pet sitters nationwide, analyzed its database of 200,000 registered members to come up with the name list, says CEO Aaron Easterly.
