ThinkstockJust as today's second-grade classrooms are no longer filled to the brim with Jennifers and Jasons, the dog names that were most popular a decade or two ago are no longer at the head of the class.

After checking out the 10 most popular puppy names and 10 trendiest dog names, we decided to try something different and determine which names are on the other end of current trends. Using Vetstreet's data on close to 1.26 million dogs, we took a peek at which names have fallen in popularity since 2003.

Here are the 10 dog names that have fallen the farthest in the past decade.
