It can be fun choosing a name for your new pet. A lot of people base the name on the appearance such as Smokey, Misty, Blacky, Snowy, Tabby, Ginger etc.
Human names are popular such as Lucy, Fred, Pedro, Dolly, Fanny, Maisie and Chantelle.
Food and drink suggest names like Pepsi, Kahlua, Cookie, Peanut, Sushi, Coffee, Toffee and countless others.
For a posh looking cat there is Princess, King, Czar, Sheikh.
Religious names are Soloman, Sampson, Delilah, Sheba, Buddah, Zen and so-on.
There is plenty of choice in the world of music, Jazz, Opus, Beethoven, Trumpet, Cymbal, Madonna, Jagger, Jacko.
Models spring to mind for delicate princess type cats. Ellie, Naomi, Kate, Jerry, etc.
If you become the proud owners of two animals, choosing a name can be even more fun. What about Adam and Eve if they always like to stay together? Sometimes it is best to wait a few days to see how their personality develops before settling on names. Alpha and Beta could refer to the first two from a litter. A pair who keep an exceptionally clean litter tray could be called Spic and Span! Or what about Yin and Yang for a passive female and active male? Brahms and List perhaps for a tipsy pair.?
The most popular names are Tigger, Sooty, Felix, Charlie, Fluffy and Lucky (most cats are lucky to get away with some of their antics, so it is an appropriate name.)
Persian cats could take an Iranian name like Atoosa, the name of an Iranian Princess or Bousseh meaning kiss. Likewise two Siamese cats could be named Si and Am like in the film “The Lady and The Tramp”.
