The Russian Cynological Federation (RKF) has compiled a rating of the most popular dog names in the country. According to the president of the organization, Vladimir Golubev, the top 3 most popular names based on data for this year includes Oscar, Jasmine, and Olivia.
“A name for a pet is the most often used command, which for a dog means a certain signal of attention. And the choice of a name often causes difficulties, since many want it to match the character and temperament of a pet,” Golubev said.
