Those two names topped the city health department’s list of names for registered dogs. There were 1,073 males named Max last year, blowing away the second place name, Rocky, by 319, while there were 1,127 female pooches named Bella, Lola came in second with 955. The names were just some of the fun facts that the health department has about the city’s dog population which had 84,000 registered members. For example, the city broke down numbers by borough with Manhattan leading the pack in 2015 with 35% of the dog population followed by Brooklyn, 25%, Queens, 21%, Bronx, 10% and Staten Island, 9%. Mario Merlino, an assistant health commissioner, noted that the stats are limited because only 20% dogs are licensed with the health department. He encouraged more owners to license their dogs, which can be done online. Here is some of the other data.
