The Lost Dogs' Home in North Melbourne has announced the most popular names sourced from its adoptions date over the year.

Last year's winning name for both dogs and cats was Luna - and it's still popular, ranking second in both categories.

Charlie, Harry and Daisy rounded out the top five names for dogs, with Milo, Lily and Simba the three other most popular cat names.
