Decisions, decisions … 

Picking a name for a household pet can be a challenge.

Over 38% of American households own a dog, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. 

Read on to see if your dog’s name made the list – or, get a great idea for a new name for that cute puppy you’ve just welcomed home.

The AKC revealed 100 of the most popular dog names, separating them by male and female names. 

THE MOST POPULAR DOG NAMES AREN’T DOG NAMES AT ALL

The most popular name on the list — Luna — means “the ancient Roman goddess personifying the moon,” according to Dictionary.com. 

Luna, Bella and Daisy have been neck-and neck in the AKC ranking for the last few years.

In 2015, the most popular boy dog names were Sawyer, Jack and Hudson, according to the AKC. 

However, Bear, Max and Cooper were on the short list years ago as well.

American Kennel Club executive secretary Gina DiNardo said choosing a name for a pet is an important task. 

“Dogs are an important part of our families, and people take great care in choosing a name,” she said in a media statement.

“It’s fun to see if a dog’s personality is reflected in its name,” she added.

The AKC offers some tips on dog-naming, too.

Choose a name with one or two syllables — something that is easy to say, they advise.
