Dog names

If there was any doubt that this country is obsessed with food, Asahi Shinbun reports today that the three most common dog names this year is "Choko" (chocolate), "Maron" (chestnut) and "Momo" (peach). All three of which are popular ice cream flavours. The once-upon-a-time favourite "Pochi" is now only the 223rd most popular.

The article was really about how Matsushita is changing its name to Panasonic to reflect its most popular brand; the dog name part is a lot more fascinating, though.

Pet
A "Momo", perhaps?
