Attention Anglophiles: Here Are the Most Popular Dog and Cat Names in the U.K. in 2017

The top-ranking U.K. dog names didn't even make the U.S. list.

Royal fever has officially swept over the nation and the tried-and-true Anglophiles out there are probably thinking FINALLY. In between catching up on the latest news about expecting parents Kate and Wills, and swooning over Meghan Markle's fashion choices, we found the time to dig up this report by Argos Pet Insurance to see how pet naming varies across the pond.

Sure, the most popular female dog name in the U.S. still makes it to no. 2 on this list but, the no. 1 British name for boy dogs — Alfie — and girl dogs — Poppy — didn't even crack the American top 10.

If you're looking to bring a bit of the U.K. into your home — without straight up naming your dog Prince Harry (yes, we're looking at you, LVP) — here are some favored suggestions:
