Michael, SIT!

According to a study of 36,000 pet names by John Lewis Insurance, people are rejecting traditional pet names in favour of those normally given to children.

Families are more likely to call their mut George than Tiddles, while pooch names like Fido or Lassie have been replaced by Toby.

Poppy is the UK most popular name for both dogs and cats while Alfie, Molly, Charlie, Max, Bella, Millie, Daisy and Rosie appear in the Top 10 for both animals.

The company's research also uncovered a craze for naming cats and dogs after celebrities, with J-Lo, Shakira, Clint Eastwood and Will.I.am among the stars paid tribute to in the list.

The top ten pet names for pets in Britain:

For Dogs
1: Poppy, 2: Alfie, 3: Molly, 4: Charlie, 5: Max, 6=: Bella, 6=: Ruby, 8: Millie, 9: Daisy, 10: Rosie.

For Cats
1: Poppy, 2: Oscar, 3: Charlie, 4: Molly, 5: Daisy, 6: Millie, 7: Alfie, 8: Rosie, 9: Tigger, 10: Bella, 10: Max, 10: Monty.
