While people take inspiration from Instagram to name their kids, Seattle-based Rover released its own round-up of what’s going on with naming our dogs.

The top three male names? Max, Charlie and Buddy. The top three female names? Bella, Lucy and Daisy.

Pet products? A nearly $61 billion business.
