Bella is the most popular name for female puppies, according to a pet health website survey, which suggests Twilight is influencing both what we call our pets and our babies.
"Bella has been the No. 1 female dog name since 2006. The first Twilight book, which introduced us to its heroine, Bella, came out in October 2005. Coincidence?" reads the report on Vet Street, which examined the names of 1.26 million puppies born in 2012.
A survey by Canadian Living recently found Isabella to be the third most popular girl's name in Canada.
The U.S. Social Security Administration pegged it at No. 2 in 2011 and No. 1 in 2010.
The other top female puppy names were Daisy, Lucy and Molly. For male pups, the list was less trendy, with the long-running favourite Max listing at No. 1 for the seventh year, followed by Buddy, Charlie, Rocky and Cooper.
