Did you adopt or add a pandemic pup or maybe a cat to your family this year? You wouldn’t be alone. As we all hunkered down at the start of the Covid-19 crisis, pet adoptions saw a giant increase. All of the working from home, schooling from home, and general being at home all the time has created the perfect time for many families to add a furry friend. Trupanion, an insurance company specializing in medical coverage for pets keeps a database of clients that includes the pet’s name and they have noticed a new trend of monikers that are specific to the times. Since so many of us have welcomed four-legged members to our family during this pandemic names like Corona, Rona, Covi, and even COVID are popping up on their lists.

Trupanion also surveyed its database of more than 530,000 dogs and cats and compiled lists for the top 50 dog names and the top 50 cat names of 2020. While none of those coronavirus-inspired selections made the list, have a look below and see if your fur baby is represented.
