With the launch of Disney+, everyone and their dog is looking forward to streaming their favorite movies and TV shows over and over. Is it even possible to understand just how much this entertainment company has influenced everyday culture? As the most popular Disney dog names prove, plenty of pooches are all about representing that Disney magic, too.
In honor of Lady and the Tramp's live-action release on Disney+, the team at smart dog collar company Fi searched their database of 1.6 million dogs to test out the popularity of Disney-inspired dog names. Everyone from Ariel to Zazu was included. Researchers found that, of all the dogs in America named after Disney characters, Lady was the name given to 5.3 percent of these pups. It was the second-most popular dog name in their search. In fact, the top finding kind of surprised researchers, but it's honestly a perfect canine name.
Whatever you're marathon-watching on Disney+ right now, remember that someone, somewhere, is probably going to commemorate those characters with a pet name soon. (My top choice is Pongo, the Dalmatian, which sadly did not make the list.)
