Is your pets name inspired by a famous, sparkly vampire? If so then maybe your pets name made the list. Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI) has released its list of the Top Pet Names of 2013 along with an extensive list of some of the wackiest pet names.

Bella and Max top the list of most common pet names for the second year in a row. VPI uses a database of 500,000 insured pets to determine the most common dog and cat names. Bella is number one for both dog and cat showing that pop culture is still influencing peoples name choices.

Human names continue to be all the rage for pets- some of the popular pet names even appeared on last year's popular baby name lists. Falling off the list of popular cat names was Smokey. Oh Smokey, such a good cat name. An oldie- but a goodie. Both lists were very similar to last year- and to one another.

For something different check out the list of 2013’s wacky pet names. It is well worth the read- with names like Cheeto Burrito and Stinky Monkey making the top ten the list is a good laugh. VPI didn’t disappoint- these are the top ten dog and cat names, plus the top ten wackiest pet names that made the list for 2013.
