Bella the Lab has one of the most popular names.

In recognition of National Dog Day (Aug. 26), Trupanion, the leader in medical insurance for pets, has released its anticipated list of most popular dog names and breeds for 2021.  

Surveying its database of more than 600,000 insured pets, Trupanion has compiled a tail-wagger of a top 10 list. After ranking third in 2020, dogs named "Bella" put their zoomies to good work over the past year, bursting to the top with the most popular name in 2021. New names to the list this year include Molly and Lola.

National Dog Day honors all breeds, and it is indeed the lovable mixed breed that always tops the charts. After that, the Labrador Retriever leads the pack for most popular breed in 2021; a lead they have enjoyed for decades.
