We often hear about the most popular baby names, but what about names for our other important family members?

Medibank Pet Insurance has released the top 100 pet names for 2017!

The data, based on Medibank’s record of 270,000 cars and dogs, shows Aussies are increasingly choosing human names for their furry friends – with Bella, Charlies and Max taking out the top spots.

Pop culture also continues to be a common influence, with 34 Jedis, 27 Galdalfs, eight Pikachus, two Captain Jack Sparrows and even one HogwartzRadiantFlame!

Popular TV show Game of Thrones was also well represented, with 38 Khaleesis, six Joffreys, three Jon Snows and one Cercei!

‘Meat Pie’ took the title with the most ‘true blue Aussie’ name, with three pets named after the popular Aussie food.
