For the 2nd year in a row, Lucy is the most popular dog name in Wellesley, according to the town’s clerk office.
The top 10:
1. Lucy (37 dogs)
2. Lily (33)
3. Bailey (32) (Perhaps an unintentional nod to the popular old Bailey’s ice cream shop in Wellesley Square)
4. Molly (32)
5. Teddy (30)
6. Tucker (27)
7. Bella (25) (Our school superintendent Bella Wong must be so proud!)
8. Daisy (25)
9. Maggie (24)
10. Rosie (24) (Wonder if any were named for the closed Bakery?)
There are 2,610 registered dogs in town, up from 2,558 registered about a year ago.
If your pup has any of these top names and you wanna send along their picture here, we can pop it into this post to let people know just what a Lucy, Teddy or Maggie looks like…
Meanwhile, we did ask the clerk’s office if there were any unusual names on the whole list and were told no — which raises serious questions about the imaginations of dog owners in town.
