Calling all new puppy owners and pooch lovers: curious as to how your dog's name compares to other canines?

Well, you're in luck. The United States' largest pet insurance company, Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. (VPI), sorted through its database of 500,000 pets and determined the top dog names of 2013. For the second year in a row, "Bella" and "Max" topped the charts.

Curtis Steinhoff, director of Corporate Communications at VPI, acknowledged that the most favored dog names were also among the most popular baby names. “This trend illustrates the close bond that pet owners have with their pets. Many people view their dog and cat as family members and they are naming them to reflect that human-animal bond," he said in a press release.

If human monikers aren't your fancy, you're not alone. VPI also compiled a list of the wackiest pet names of 2013, where "Sir Knuckles Da Dragon" and "Stinky Monkey" topped the charts.
