Tips for Choosing a Name

It’s not easy settling on a name for a new cat or kitten. Trust me, I’ve been there a few times and know this all too well.

It helps if you can narrow it down to something that you’re interested in, like food. The next step is to try and think of a word that relates to the look, color, or characteristics of your cat.

Even young kittens usually have strong personalities and unique features, so this isn’t usually too hard if you think about it.

Then just read through lots of names like the lists I’ve put together above. For me, something always jumps out. Or, at least a few names do and then I can start to eliminate some of the names.

Feel free to drop me a note and let me know how you got on. Or, if you have any words you want me to add to the list, lemme know. Thanks.

If you managed to get through this list without finding the perfect name – which I find hard to believe – check out some of the other popular cat names posts below:
