Chances are, your furry best friend isn’t named Fido or Spot any more.

Picking the perfect name for your new pooch is one of the most important things you can do as a new dog owner. It’s right up there with buying it the best chew toys, a fashionable collar, a good bed, and, of course, all those practical needs like registration, healthy food, and their first check-up.

It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that, just like with human baby names, there are also trends when it comes to people naming their precious fur babies as well. In honor of National Dog Day on Aug. 26, BARK is releasing the top 200 most popular dog names in the U.S. based on BarkBox and Super Chewer subscribers.

Perhaps the "Twilight" and "Harry Potter" book series are still going strong with dog parents out there because names like Bella, Luna, Molly, and Lily top the list as the most popular dog names. Shortened versions of traditional human names like Charlie, Lucy, Max, Daisy, and Penny are also popular choices.

Dog parents also seem to like old fashioned, American-style names like Buddy, Cooper, Tucker, and Harley, as well. Names that sound like food like Pepper, Peanut, Ginger, Oreo, and Mocha are scattered throughout the list.

In addition to the list of names, BARK is also teaming up with the NYC Gay Men’s Chorus on Twitter. Dog moms and dads who want to show their four-legged friends some love can get a customized song about their pup by replying to @barkbox on Twitter with their dog’s name, photo and a little bit about why they deserve praise with the hashtag #Praisedog. BarkBox will then reply with a song made just for them.

Check out this massive list of 200 popular dog names and see if you can spot your own pup’s name among the ranks.
