Are you wondering what to call your new best friend?

Bella leads the list for female dogs, according to Rover.com, the world’s largest network of pet sitters and dog walkers, while Max is favored for males.

The other top five girl-dog names are Luna, Lucy, Daisy and Lily. For the boys, they are Charlie, Cooper, Buddy and Rocky.

Pet parents are also turning to pop culture for name possibilities, with Taylor Swift, Khalid, Madonna, Ariana and David Bowie coming from the music world and superhero names such as Harley, Loki, Thor, Flash, May, Drax, Ronan and Valkyrie making the list.

And the British royals, much in the news of late, have also inspired dog names including Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth, Archie and Meghan, as have celebrities (and their kids) in general, reflected in monikers such as, Stormi, Saint, Keanu and Kim.

What’s more, something about the comfort a dog provides must make people hungry for comfort foods: Rover.com says that names like Waffles, Brioche and Cupcake are trending upwards.
