Choosing the perfect name for your dog can be just as stressful as naming a child. So if you are looking for some puppy-naming inspiration, check out the names you'll hear most often at the dog park.

According to Rover.com, the top dog monikers for 2017 are very similar to previous years with Max and Bella taking the number one spots. When it comes to naming a dog, 44 percent of owners say their dog names tend to be human names, which is why we don't see Fido or Spot on the top ten list. When you have a classic dog name like Charlie or Sadie they seem to be near the top of the list each year.

However, popular culture continues to inspire the name game when it comes to four-legged-friends. With 53 percent of dog owners surveyed saying they named their dogs for a character from a TV show, movie, or book, or after a celebrity.

Here are the most popular dog names for this year:
