There are 81,542 registered dogs in New York City.
Using the city’s official dog data, NPR station WNYC has publicly listed all of them in an online spreadsheet. Every single dog’s breed, name, and colors are counted for.
As it turns out, New Yorkers give their dogs really weird names. From luxury fashion to cognac, NYC’s canine population represents a large sampling of well-known brands. Some make better names than others.
We compiled WNYC’s rankings and our own research to bring you this countdown.
