Top 10 kitten and puppy names for 2020 as Boris surges into top 100

With more Brits adding a new furry family member to their lives this year than ever before, Pets at Home is revealing a shift in the names pet owners have given their new family members through registration VIP club during the last 12 months.

Given the extensive coverage and constant contact with the Prime Minister this year, it’s no surprise that the Boris name is now on the top 100 list. Compared to the previous year, the number of new puppies and kittens with the name Boris increased by 145% compared to the previous 12 months.

The mental and physical benefits of having a pet have also been shown to be particularly common during the coronavirus outbreak, helping to alleviate the anxiety and stress many face during the pandemic. Names celebrating the support, comfort, and camaraderie that pets have provided during lockdown are also included, with both Teddy and Buddy also making the top 10.

Claire Gavin, Director of Innovation at Pets at Home, said, “Admitting a new pet is incredibly special and choosing an appropriate name is a big decision. The camaraderie of our furry friends was so important to many pet owners during the lockdown and it is clear that these special moments were a high point in a really difficult year. “
