    Looking to adopt a new furry companion?

    In honor of National Pet Day on Monday, social media app Nextdoor released a report on top pet names across the country and by animal.

    For the Southwestern states, including California, that name is Lucy. Coincidentally, Lucy is the top names for cats.

    Bella, the most popular pet name in the Pacific Northwest, also earned the top name for dogs.

    In a similar list released last month, Nextdoor also named Bella the top dog name in San Diego County, followed by Lucy, Buddy, Max, Molly, Daisy, Bailey, Lola, Rocky and Chloe.

    National Pet Day started in 2006 to celebrate the joy of animals and to draw light to those in need of permanent homes.

    Data for the list was compiled from Nextdoor member profiles that included pet information. 

    Here’s a look at the full Nextdoor map of most popular names:
