In order to have a dog in NYC, you have to register it with the city (you can find out more about getting a dog license here). While those licenses will set you back $8.50-$34 per year, it turns out they have a pretty unexpected plus side!

The Health Department has compiled every registered dog name in the city into an eminently clickable interactive graphic. Not only can you search for a specific name to find out how many city pooches might have the same name as your pup, but you can also easily see which names are the most popular.

Towards the top of the list are: 

Bella 1195

Max 1153

Charlie 856

Coco 852

Rocky 823

Lola 795

Lucy 710

Lucky 723

Buddy 677

Daisy 649
