Britney Spears' popularity in the fan world might have tumbled, but she's surely a hit among canine circles.
It turns out that the troubled star's name is a favourite among the English when it comes to naming their pooches.
Pet charity PDSA looked at the names of pets that visited its 47 PetAid hospitals in 2007 for the research, which was carried out to mark the launch of the charity's Pet Pawtraits Calendar, and discovered an increase in celebrity names, reports the Daily Snack.
Tyson, after boxer Mike Tyson, was found to be at the top followed by Harry, after Prince Harry or the boy wizard Harry Potter.
At the third place was Ozzy, inspired by Ozzy Osbourne, which was followed by Robbie Williams, Rooney Wayne, David Beckham, Paris Hilton, Elvis Presley, Jessie Wallace and Britney Spears.
Among the Britons, Beckham has also named his two dogs Snoop and Puffy after the US rap stars and Joss Stone's poodle is named after Dusty Springfield.
