The Pet Name Game

Got a press release today from the Social Security Administration listing the most popular (human) baby names in 2005. Which were:

GIRLS:

Emily
Emma
Madison
Abigail
Olivia
Isabella
Hannah
Samantha
Ava
Ashley

BOYS:

Jacob
Michael
Joshua
Matthew
Ethan
Andrew
Daniel
Anthony
Christopher
Joseph

This led me to wonder about the most popular pet names. So here, from the ASPCA, is the Top 30 list, which I believe is cats and dogs (sorry about the formatting. The technical apsects of certain blogging operations escape me):

1. Max 16. Jake
2. Sam 17. Bandit
3. Lady 18. Tiger
4. Bear 19. Samantha
5. Smokey 20. Lucky
6. Shadow 21. Muffin
7. Kitty 22. Princess
8. Molly 23. Maggie
9. Buddy 24. Charlie
10. Brandy 25. Sheba
11. Ginger 26. Rocky
12. Baby 27. Patches
13. Misty 28. Tigger
14. Missy 29. Rusty
15. Pepper 30. Buster
