Welcoming a furry new friend to the family is kind of a big deal. Your dog is going to become an important part of your life, so you’ve got to make sure you give the little pup the perfect name.

You want something you’re not going to be embarrassed to call when they’re misbehaving out on a walk or that you won’t get completely sick of.

Some people like to go for food-related names like, Fudge or Muffin, but it seems that there’s been a big increase recently in movie-inspired monikers.

According to new figures from dog chew brand, Tasty Bone, almost one in five dogs were named after a film character over the last year. People were particularly taken with Marvel and DC character names, with Loki (Thor), Jarvis (Iron Man) and Harley (Suicide Squad) all doing well.

And the trend looks set to continue into 2020, with Loki and Harley also featuring in the top 10 predictions for the next year.

Some Disney movie names have also made the cut, with Elsa, Simba and Lady all on the list.

The popularity of the Disney names may be due to the recent and upcoming movie releases. The Lion King live action movie hit cinemas in July, Frozen 2 is set to be released next month and the live action Lady and the Tramp will be on Disney + when it hits the UK at some point in the future.

Other names featured in the top 10 were Charlie, Bella, Millie and Maggie.

Here’s a look at the list in full:
