Earlier this week, we looked at popular baby names making the rounds this year in Japan and now we’ve discovered some data on what Japanese named their pets in 2014. The little guy above may be right to look concerned because almost every name on the list is food-related

Without any further ado, here are the top 15, with English meanings in parenthesis where necessary:

1. Choco (as in chocolate)
2. Maron (chestnut)
3. 獅夢 (read as Shimu or Reon, the characters mean lion and dream)
4. Leo
5. Coco
6. Cocoa
7. Sachi (good luck)
8. Mocha
9. Milk
10. Sakura (cherry blossom, also eaten in Japan)
11. Momo (peach)
12. Azuki (as in the bean)
13. Sora (sky)
14. Momo (same as #11, but spelled with katakana)
15. Hana (flower)

There’s a whole lot of tasty things on that list, but I’m sure our furry and feathered friends don’t have anything to worry about. I mean, it’s just a name, right?
