Naming your kitty is usually one of the first things you do after adopting them. Some people prefer short and sweet names while others like to bestow long, regal titles that usually get shortened to something more manageable. In fact, whichever name you decide upon, you will also give them dozens of silly nicknames, just because you love them so much.

So, if you’re looking for the right name to suit your kitten then look no further! One of the leading Pet Insurance companies have searched their database and come up with the most popular kitten names this year.

If a kitten joined your family recently why not take a look and see whether their name has made the list.

When choosing a name for your cat, it’s best to pick one that is easy to pronounce. Multi-syllable names work well as they are easier for your pet to hear and recognise. Finally, make sure to avoid names which sound like commands – “Flo” sounds like “No,” for instance, and can easily confuse your cat.
