Top ten festive pet names 2021!

Looking for a great Christmas quiz question or to see where your pet’s festive name ranks? We have compiled the top 10 Christmassy cat and dog names in the UK in 2021!

Deck the halls - it's the top 10 dogs' names

  1. Holly
  2. Elsa
  3. Star
  4. Angel
  5. Goose
  6. Snowy
  7. Pudding
  8. Santa
  9. Rudolph
  10. Comet

Our list is for the dogs is very similar to 2020, with Holly being by far the most popular festive dog name! There are more than double the number of Holly’s compared with Christmas position two, Elsa. ‘Holly’ and ‘Elsa’ are both most popular names among Labrador Retrievers.

As it should be, there is only one dog named Rudolph – a Cockapoo (hopefully without a red nose), but confusingly, Agria has two dogs named ‘Santa’ – a Portuguese Water Dog and a Toy Poodle. 

And for the Christmassy cats...

We have a few changes from our 2020 list, with Angel falling from the top of the tree to position four, to be replaced by Elsa, from the film Frozen:

  1. Elsa
  2. Snowy
  3. Holly
  4. Star
  5. Angel
  6. Goose 
  7. Pudding
  8. Rudolph
  9. Ivy
  10. Comet

As is representative of the cat population of the UK, all of the top festive names were most popular among moggies. However, Ragdolls, followed by Maine Coons, were the next most likely to be named after something festive.

The data used in this research was collected from all live policies underwritten by Agria Pet Insurance in December 2021.
