Staff at Battersea have also revealed a number of more unusual names of pets to have entered their doors this year - including Balthazar the kitten and Audrey Hepburn the cat.
Rebecca Lodder, Battersea Rehoming and Welfare Manager said, according to Metro: "We take in thousands of animals every year, and we definitely notice certain trends with pet names.
"At the moment the most popular names are very traditional and tend to be just two syllables, making it easy to call them to us for a fuss!
"Regardless of the names of our dogs and cats, whether they be traditional or a one-off, each and every rescue animal has their own unique personality, which we celebrate here at Battersea."
