AnchorageDecember 4, 2013 

My sweet Lucy has the No. 3 most popular new dog name in a survey of puppies from 2013.

MIKE LEWIS / ADN.COM/DOGBLOG searches a database of nearly 1 million dogs born during the year and publishes a list of the most popular names. Is your dog on the list?

Lucy, my Chessie, has the No. 3 most popular female name. While my current Yorkies Eddie and Jillie didn't make the list, a beloved previous one, Jack, is No. 9.

Check out the list at the link above just for fun. Interestingly, the top 4 on the female list didn't change for the eighth straight year. While the order changed a bit, the top 10 male names stayed the same as last year.
