Bella is the most popular dog's name in NSW.

The NSW Pet Registry has revealed the top 10 most popular dog names, which have remained mainly the same in the past five years.

The only exception - the addition of the Harry Potter-inspired Luna (placing in 2nd spot), in the past two years.

In third position, Charlie, followed by Coco, Max, Ruby, Buddy, Molly, Daisy and Rosie.

Other interesting names from the registry include Shadow, Bruce, Lucky, Blue and Red.

Additionally, 441 dogs now share their name with the newest addition to the royal family - Archie.

Minister for Local Government Shelley Hancock says it's clear we have an imaginative bunch of pet owners in NSW when it comes to picking names for our dogs.

"It's interesting to see the influence of popular culture on our name choices and the decline of more traditional names, with not one Fido or Spot in the top 100," Mrs Hancock said.
