Pet Insurance Australia has revealed the popular pet names out of which many names are common in the lists of dogs and cats.
The name seems to be inspired from model Bella Hadid or Twilight character, Bella Swan.
Besides Bella, Charlie and Coco are the trendy names which made up to both the lists of dogs and cats.
The list of popular pet names of 2016 is quite surprising as it differs from the traditional choice of pet names.
Bella, Charlie and Coco are common in both the lists of canine and felines. Bella topped the list of both dogs and cats as the name is inspired from popular celebrities.
Coco is at number three for cats and number six for dogs.
This pet name is inspired by the main character in the Lion King and secured 7th position in the list of cat names.
Nadia Crighton from Pet Insurance Australia explained, "Naming a pet is such a special time in the lives of many pet owners. It's great to see some of the classics making a return this year like Buddy and Coco alongside new emerging names such as Simba and Luna."
Crighton suggested, "A great tip when considering a name for your new pet is to have a few to choose from. Sometimes you'll have a certain name in mind then when your pet arrives home, the name simply doesn't suit them."
"It's also a good idea to be sensible in your naming choice. Remember, that your precious pup or kitten will be a cherished family member for up to 20 years, so choose a name that will suit them when they are fully grown dogs or cats."
