Spots out — Chloe is in

Chloe, Bella, Lucy and Max the most popular regional pet names in 2019

Bella, Lucy, Chloe and Max were some of the most popular names in 2019. Not for human babies but for the fur babies living in Covington, Maple Valley and Black Diamond.

Each year the Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) release a list of the county’s most popular pet names based on pet licensing information.

“Licensing your pet gives them a fighting chance of making it back home should they become lost,” King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn stated in a RASKC press release. “Beyond helping keep your own pet safe, the licensing fee you pay supports RASKC’s shelters that give thousands of pets a second chance.”

In 2019 Covington residents registered 1,992 dogs and 805 cats; Maple Valley residents registered 2,704 dogs and 898 cats; and Black Diamond residents registered 397 dogs and 117 cats, according to the press release.
