The pet insurance company says, "since March, people welcoming new pets in their home are giving them names to match the moment with names that include Corona, Rona, Covi, and even COVID.  Pet owners have also given a nod of approval to Dr. Fauci as they have started naming their favorite furry friends, Fauci, a new trend since the start of the pandemic."
