New York City is home to a whole lot of people, and as such it's home to a whole lot of dogs that have made it onto the NYC dog name database. The official municipal government site is a searchable database that allows anyone online to look up any of the registered dog names across the five boroughs.

The NYC dog name database is impressively interactive and nimble. Though there are thousands of dogs in the database, the site almost immediately brings up a name and the amount of times that name has been registered when a user searches. They can also hover their mouse over the bubbles in the graph to see information.

The purpose behind the database is to encourage those living in NYC to register their pets with the local authorities.
