How to Name Your Cat

There are several ways that you can go about naming your cat. Preferably, you would find a single name that you like and choose it for your cat. However, it rarely works out this way. Instead, you often can’t find a name that is suitable or find way too many names.

If you have more than one person involved, then finding a name everyone likes can be even more difficult.

For this reason, we recommend making a list of all the names that you like for your cat. Some people’s lists will be longer than others. In the beginning, you don’t have to be too choosy. Just write down anything that sounds good. Then, start crossing names out.

Get the list down to a few names that you really can’t choose between. Include others’ ideas on the list as well if there are more people involved in naming the cat.

Next, you can try the names out on your cat for a day or two each. Some names may sound great but just not fit well on your cat. This will also allow you to get to know your new cat better before you select a name. Because it takes cats a week or more to learn their name, this process should not confuse them.
