Top Cat Names of 2017
Picking out a name for your cat is one of the most fun – and nerve wracking! – experiences of being a cat parent. After all, you’ll have to say that name for a very long time.
As the year comes to a close, Find Cat Names (findcatnames.com) has announced the year’s top cat names. The site compiled the selections of its 2.2 million visitors, and the results are surprising.
For starters, while names from the 1994 film The Lion King have always been popular, this is the first year that they’ve placed first on both the top male and female lists.
For the male cat names, Simba, the movie’s main character, ranked number one on the list. Nala, the friend and eventual wife of Simba, finished as the top choice of the year for female cats.
People say that the ‘90s are making a comeback, so perhaps that is what’s behind the resurgence of these names?
That wasn’t the only surprise. Milo, typically considered a popular dog name, skyrocketed to the number two spot on the list of top male cat names.
We hope you’ll find this infographic fun but don’t forget to let us know the names of your cats!
