Have your say

These days apparently one in six dogs in the UK have a human name. Harry Styles has a dog called Colin!

I’ve never owned a dog, but my pet rabbit is named Ivor. It took us nearly two weeks to come up with a name for him. He was very nearly called Gus, we toyed with Amos and Cecil was also a contender.

For me, naming a pet is a chance to use those more unusual human names that you wouldn’t pick for your child.

One of my friends has a dog named Norman.

It’s not exactly a fashionable baby name at the moment, but who says a dog’s name has to be ‘cool’?

So if you’re just about to get a pet forget Fluffy, Rex and Rover.

Instead think Fiona, Richard and Roger!
