Happy Geek Pride Day! Every May 25th is set aside to celebrate the wonder of geekdom—however you may define it. No matter your nerdy interest, from gaming to coding, Star Trek to Star Wars, it’s a great time to let your geek flag fly. And maybe dress up your dog? (Oh, wait. Every day is a good day to dress up your dog.) Here at Rover, we dug through our data of dog names nationwide to find the most gloriously geeky choices for pets.
The most common “geek name” category of all? Star Wars, of course. Vintage video games, classic fantasy films, and good old-fashioned science also provided plenty of awesome canine monikers. Check out the most popular choices for each category below. And if you had fun, check out the 100 most popular dog names, the coolest dog names around, and our roundup of unique dog names.
