(CNN) — Americans love their dogs like children — and apparently name them like children too.

Bella is the most popular dog name of the past decade.

The website mydogsname.com compiled a list of the most common names for 2019 and noticed a big trend.

Bella has topped the list for female dogs every year since the website launched about ten years ago.
