VetStreet.com, a site dedicated to linking pet owners to veterinarians, combed through their database of 969,517 names of puppies born since January 1, 2014, to determine the top 10 male and female puppy names of the year. The results? Bella and Max topped the lists once again!

Each of the top three female names — Bella, Daisy, and Lucy — have kept their status as top dog, while some names were less lucky. Molly and Sophie each fell one spot while Chloe plummeted two. The Cinderella Story of this year's list is Luna, which jumped four spots since 2013; a trend VetStreet.com attributes to the "Harry Potter" series.

For male dogs, half of the names maintained their position with Cooper, Duke, Bear, Bentley, and Toby all holding strong. Charlie and Rocky each climbed one spot while Zeus bumped up three places to number 8.
