Jennifer Lopez divided fans over the weekend after asking her followers on social media to help her son Max choose a name for his new puppy. The Jenny from the Block hitmaker posted a poll on Instagram Stories and asked them to pick between the names Yankee Doodle and Tyson. J-Lo's fiancé Alex Rodriguez posted the same poll on his account, and the results were very close. While the dog is still yet to have a moniker, the votes show that Yankee Doodle was the more popular choice, with 51% over 49% for Tyson. However, Max is more keen on the name Tyson, according to A-Rod, so only time will tell what they decide!
