Max is the most popular name for Dutch dogs for the third year in a row, according to the annual list compiled by a major pet insurance company.

For cats, Luna is back on top after ceding the number one position to Pip last year. Pip is also the second most popular name for dogs.

New this year in the dog ranking is Bailey in fourth place, while Coco debuts in the same position in the cat name list.

The ranking, compiled by Reaal Dier&Zorg, is based on the names given on new insurance policies and application forms between June 2017 and June this year.
