I’ve mentioned a lot of kitty names in a previous post, but because I’m always finding new names I like, I figured I’d make a post dedicated to names alone. I couldn’t really figure out where to start though, because I do have favourite names, but I have a lot of those, so it couldn’t be just a top-10. Since there are names for males and names for females, I decided to do an alphabet of cute kitty names by gender, inspired by post I saw on a Dutch cat blog; pawsome.nl!
Of course, ladies first! I’m creating one big list for all these names, but the girl’s names will be first each time. You might notice that I’m a little partial to boys names, because I set out to buy a boy, but a girl’s got to be prepared; I have a list of girl’s names too. Some of the names on both lists are gender neutral, but I’ve put them in the list I personally think they fit best, but you might feel differently about it. If I have a special reason, or inspiration for the name, I’ll try to mention it!

As you can see, I personally have a preference for human names, not typical pet names, although I do have some funky names thrown in there, that you would most definitely not want to call your daughter or son. Some named I just stumbled upon, others, I found in my favourite series, books, movies and so on.
Some people have asked me why I named Finley the way I did, and honestly, I have no real reason for it, other than the fact that it just sounds right to me. Did you name your pet after someone? Or did you just stumble upon a name that felt right, like I did? I’d love to know, and I hope this post inspired you, if you’re still looking for a name for your furry friend! (:
Ps. If I find any new names I like/love, I’ll edit them in!
