This Official NYC Department of Health Map Shows The Most Popular Dog Names Per Neighborhood

The New York City Department of Health is the City agency responsible for dog licensing, and they recently used this data to compile an interactive map showing the most popular unique names per neighborhood. That means that this map shows the most popular name in that neighborhood that is a standout from the average across the entire City.

"Unique dog name by neighborhood” shows dog names that are much more popular in a specific neighborhood than they are citywide. For example, in Morningside Heights, Theodore emerged as the most unique name in that neighborhood: ranked 6th in Morningside Heights but only 162nd citywide.

Play around with the map to see what dog names are popular and unique to your neighborhood.
