Top Cat Names

This page of the site lists the top 10 and the top 40 names for boy and girl cats as chosen by people, specifically cat lovers, in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. 

So they are easy to find, the names are listed by most popular, not alphabetically, and as you read and search, you'll notice that many listed for male cats could be used for females and visa versa. The good thing too is that the names are perfect for, and will fit, all breeds of cats, and any kind of personality.

Interestingly enough, traditional names, and recent names from favorite movie and TV cats, pets, and kittens continue to make the yearly top list which means some of them are quite common, but others are refreshingly different and unique.

It is also interesting to note, that many of the top cat names on the lists are human names. Often a kitty that is called by a "'human-type" name tends to have a special relationship with its owner, who often regards their furry feline as their best friend, or surrogate child. Any animal, but especially a cat recently saved through adoption, or in need special care or company, can also have a special meaning for their owners.

Note: For more information & suggestions for "popular" names for cats that have stood the test of time, go to  Popular Cat Names.
