Top Dog Names for 2010 revealed

By johnboy - 6 January 2011 25

The Department of Territory and Municipal Services has kindly released their list of the most registered dog names for 2010.

    1. Max
    2. Jack
    3. Molly
    4. Bella
    5. Jessie
    6. Charlie
    7. Sam
    8. Lucy
    9. Toby
    10. Oscar

Possibly a good idea to cross these names off the potentials list for children.

“Anthropomorphism” didn’t sound right in my head for what I was meaning there – to paraphrase, “the anthropomorphism of society” would imply that society itslef was being anthropomorphised, whereas “the anthropomorphisation of society” refers to society’s movement towards the practice of anthropomorphism.

In other words, I made it up. But I did it independently from the Americans.

Anthropomorphism. Extra suffixes is americanisationalism innit.

Interestingly enough, Jack and Max are the two most popular boys names of the last decade, according to news.com.au anyway.

QED.

Rumour has it that ‘Joel’or ‘Monors’ will be the top name for 2011

My guess is that it’s got something to do with the social trend of pets acting as substitutes for human children. Anthropomorphisation has a lot to answer for.

If that were the case, shouldn’t dog names reflect the common trend in human names? We would have a myriad of dogs roaming the streets all named Lateeishia, Brandeen, Breeianna, Indigo or whatever US state happens to be popular at the time.

Kramer, you have chosen nice decent names for your kids. None of those names are boganised. *like*

Kramer 10:13 am 06 Jan 11

Why is it that 2 of my 3 kids names appear in the above list?!?

andym 10:12 am 06 Jan 11

Disapointed my all time favourite dog name, Barry, has not made it on the list.

“Here Barry”
“Dinner time Barry”
“Get inside Barry”
and the best of all
“Get ya nose outta there Barry”

Wow. Admittedly dog names aren’t something I keep up with, but since when is the entire list devoid of any ‘classic’ dog names – where’s bingo, rusty and the like? Why are they all ‘human’ names?
