Interestingly, a lot of the names overlap between cats and dogs!

If you notice in the cat names, though, both Nala and Simba make the top 10, which is likely due to The Lion King remake coming out earlier this year.

Other major pet name moments include "Arya" increasing by 150%, and Game of Thrones names in GENERAL increasing by 28% thanks to the show's final season.

Pet owners also proved to be big fans of the royal family. Last year, the number of dogs named Meghan and Harry both increased by more than 100 percent, this time around, their son Archie, who was born in May, gave the biggest boost. Pets named Archie went up by 45% this year, while pets named after Meghan rose by 42%.

Interestingly, the biggest jump went to pets named after Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth, at 200% and 150% respectively.
