What to Name your Dog? Top Dog Names

Some of us when we first bring home our companion(s) already have names picked out for your dog. Others dogs will already come with names say through adoption or change of ownership. When you have the opportunity to name your dog/puppy aka new best friend ...what should it be?
Here's a list that may be helpful to you--whether you are planning for a popular "pupular" dog name or if you want to avoid calling out "FIDO" and having 10 dogs at the park run towards you:

I'm looking at the list below and I definitely do not see the name "RUCKUS" listed anywhere. 
Here's a background story to how RUCKUS received his name. His breeder mentioned to us that when this American Eskimo was born and raised under their care, they watched his behavior and noted that he was actually quite mild-natured. The name RUCKUS was written on his paperwork by accident as it was supposed to be "ROMPERS" due to his bunny like nature as he hops around as a pup. 
Now, I tried calling out Rompers but it didn't seem to work so Ruckus it is.
