Pets are everywhere in Minnesota and whether they're a dog, cat or something else, they all have their own unique personalities. But when it comes to names, there are a few that are more popular than others when it comes to our canine and feline friends here in the Bold North.

The latest survey from Banfield Pet Hospitals says that there are 56,088 dogs and 17,931 cats living here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. That's a lot of paws. And when it comes to names, while there are a ton of variations, there are still some that are more common than others.

None of ours, though. We have three cats, named Finnegan, Huxley and Hazel. None of those made this list of The Most Popular Cat Names in Minnesota. (Which figures. Heck, back when our beloved Beagle, Chance, was living, even HIS name didn't crack the Top 10 Dog Names-- and that name is much more common.)

So, take a look. Are your pets' names included on the list this year?
