How to choose a name for your cat?

Choosing your cat or kitten’s name is so important – once you’ve picked it, you can’t change it. So, finding the perfect one is crucial!

Once your cat has learned its name, you can use it to capture his/her attention, which makes communication between cat and owner a lot easier! That’s not to say your cat will actually listen to anything you say (as studies have shown), but it’s a start.

The most popular cat names in the UK are currently ‘Poppy’ for a female cat and ‘Oscar’ for a male cat. But picking a name can’t only be based on your personal preference – your cat needs to like it too!

Finding a good name for your cat

To pick a cat name, first consider the length of it. The shorter the name, the easier it will be for your cat to recognise it. Pet parents should also make sure the name they pick is easy to pronounce and rolls right off the tongue, again to enhance communication with the animal.

Other considerations include your cat’s size, sex, and personality. You can also inspire yourself from your cat’s breed, behaviour, habits, or physical appearance. For instance, ‘Grumpy’ would work well for cat breeds such as Persians or Himalayans, don’t you think?

Whatever the name you choose, make sure it’s a name you actually like. Cats are family members and will be your everyday companions for many happy years. You don’t want to be calling out a name you don’t like for that long!

Happy choosing!
