How does a dog get their name?

Is my name short for Cleopatra?

Isn't it funny when you go to the park, and you hear someone yell "Hey Charlie" or "It's time to go Molly." People assume a parent is yelling for their child. They are, if their child is a dog.

Did you know Molly and Charlie are two super popular dog names today? What happened to Rex? Too obvious? Maybe the human names for dogs validates my theory that dogs ARE members of the family. What do you think?

What if your dog chose your name? I'd call my female...

"Ida" as in, Ida like more treats please...BOL

Here is a cool graph with lots of information on dog names...enjoy!
