What’s in a (Cat’s) Name

Is a group of kittens really called a kindle?” | CATERPICKLES

We follow several blogs that have pictures of beautiful kitties. The titles on the posts are kind of weird. Like, it will say “Fluffy Kitty” and show a Sphinx, or it will say “Black Cat” and show a striped orange kitty.

Finally got a name tag for my cat!! : MinecraftMemes

We started thinking about the names that cats actually have and decided to look up the most popular names. Then we discussed what we thought a cat with that name would look like. Our descriptions are not intended to portray anything negative about our perfect species. It is merely intended to give humans some guidance on what type of name fits what type of cat.

Here are the top 10 kitty names in the U.S:

Luna – We think this name belongs with an elegant cat. One who shows her superiority innately; she never needs to meow about it.

Princess Aurora – A Photogenic Cat Royalty | Cats, Pretty cats, Cute animals

Bella – Another beautiful cat. She attracts beautiful cats around her.

  1. I loved seeing these kitties! I am sorry that two of the pictures didn’t show however. The Cutest Paw and the Sophicated Cat. Dinnerbone? WOWSERS! Those cats we saw here are fitting their names right to the last fur! 🙂

  2. I think you are right on the money. We try to name our cats based on their personality. Chris is our only cat that we didn’t name. We actually changed his name to Rudy because he was rude but it didn’t stick. I guess because my son’s name is Chris too and they are both stubborn that it just seemed appropriate.

  3. My late boy was named Jelly Bean (I always spelled it 2 words) “Jelly” as we called him was white with 2 different colored eyes and everyone would think he was a girl! My late girl was named Sachiko, which means “Blissful Child” in Japanese, but I found it too exotic, so I changed her name to Chelsea. However, one of Chelsea’s nick-names was “Miss Sachiko”. 🙂 Finally, my girl now was called Casey at her foster home, but I re-named her Holly in honor of Buddy Holly, my favorite singer. Love this list, I’ve known cats with all these names except for Dinnerbone and Luna!

  4. I once had a ginger tabby I found at the local shelter. I took Lucy to the veterinarian’s to be spayed, a condition for adopting from the shelter, along with getting the standard shots.
    When I handed Lucy to the technician, she said, “This is a neutered male…” Oops! The office clerk asked me at that moment what the cat’s name was, and I had to come up with something really fast. I said, “Louie”, since it sounded similar and honored Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong, another favorite “Kool Kat”. LOL! (“Lucy” was chosen because of the cat’s hair color, you know, Lucille Ball.)

    Louie lived up to his name, and is fondly remembered.

  5. I had a Lucy.I miss her.I used to say, Lucy, you have a lot of splainin to do. Thank you for the kind words you left on my blog for the loss of Polar Bear. XO

  6. All the kitties suit their names. I have a twofeet sister who’s name is Luna, she thinks just like the Luna kitty😸My name is Little Binky, they gave me my name because they thought I’m a cool cat lady, but everyone thinks I’m a male, I wonder what they were thinking😸Pawkisses for a Happy Wednesday🐾😽💞
