Advice on Choosing the Cutest Name for Your Cat
Of course, “cuteness” is subjective, so different names will appeal to different people. Some folks will fancy an old-fashioned classic like Beatrice, while others will be drawn to something more conventional like Bubbles. There’s no right or wrong way to name your cat. When you find something that makes you smile and captures that special something about your cat, add it to your list.
Your cat’s name can also be an expression of your personality and interests. Consider your favourite characters, movies, musicians, travel destinations, hobbies and more—once, you start brainstorming ideas, it can be hard to stop!
Another thing to consider is your cat’s personality. You can usually tell right away if a kitten is going to be a boisterous goofball or a bashful wallflower. Pick a name that reflects their individuality to show your affection for your special pet.
Naming your cat is only the beginning of your journey together! So have fun, use your imagination, and be sure to take a look at Rover’s other pet name articles for more ideas.
