Remember the cute little ginger kitty in Disney’s Oliver & Company? It seems that many people do – “Oliver” was the top name for male cats last year!
Luna is a perfect name for the cat who is more night-owl than feline. Luna means “moon” in several languages including Spanish, Romanian and Italian.
Leo is latin for Lion – and the constellation was named for the Nemean Lion Heracles had to defeat as part of his twelve labors. A great name for your fierce friend!
The name Chloe came back in a big way in 2016 for both kittens AND human babies! We’d bet those parents who named their kids Chloe are cat people!
Charlie is a fantastic name for kittens of either gender – the name can be short for “Charles” or “Charlotte”, but stands alone just fine as well.
Ready to feel old? The first movie in the Twilight series was released almost ten years ago and the name still stands as a favorite for pet parents!
The name of another movie cat! Milo was the curious cat in The Adventures of Milo and Otis, who has to find his way home with the help of his Pug pal, Otis. This could be a great name if your cat has a canine friend with a matching name.
Is your kitten bright – as in brains or fur? Lucy is a classic, feminine name meaning “as of light”. Lucille Ball is a favorite Lucy, but you’ll love your Lucy as well!
Did you know that the shark costume-wearing, Roomba-riding cat had a name that wasn’t “Roomba Cat”? His name was Max! This is another name that topped both the cat AND dog lists for popular pet names in 2016.
Lilies aren’t just pretty flowers – they’re pretty kitties, too! Other floral names like Rose, Daisy, and Jasmine aren’t as popular as Lily for cats.
Jack isn’t just a cool name for your new little guy. It works well for females too. If anyone asks why you named your girl-kitten “Jack”, you can tell them it’s short for “Jaqueline”.
Sophie comes from the Greek word for “wisdom” (think: Sophocles). A perfect name for a clever cat!
A regal kitty deserves a royal name. George has been a favorite name for British royals for hundreds of years! Six kings of England have been named George.
There are several pet Lolas in Hollywood – celebrities love the name! Gregg Sulkin and Bella Thorne adopted a floppy-eared Lola just last year.
The name Simon has been popular for humans and pets in the UK for years. Americans are jumping on the trend!
