“Fluffy” is the most popular pet name of 2018, according to a new online pet name survey conducted by Hello Kitty.

For the first time since the Hello Kitty survey began in 2009, a human name topped the most popular pet names for cats and dogs.

A colleague from the US shared her photo of her two dogs with Hello Kitty, a character of the Japan-based Hello Kitty brand. She received 1,535 different responses when she asked the online community to help with the naming.

1. “Fluffy” (58.73% of votes)
