After three consecutive trips to the playoffs by the Denver Nuggets, Coloradans were inspired to name their dogs after the team’s mascot. That or the locals turned their eyes to the majestic mountains to our west. According to Rover, Rocky was the fourth most popular male dog name in Denver in 2021.
Denver’s hardwood super mascot name hasn’t gotten quite as popular the way Jane for the Dogs and Bailey for the Cats are, with both of them up nearly 1,000%.
While a pet grooming app may only contain the names of registered pets, it includes millions of names from all over the country. The most commonly used names for dogs throughout the United States are Max and Bella. Rocky is made into the top ten, so it probably isn’t inspired by the mountains.
The most important female and male dog names in Denver:

Top names for female and male cats in Denver:
