When you get your new cat, choosing the name is harder than choosing your kitty.

When I got Moe, he was already named, and I just couldn’t think of anything better; as he aged, Moe seemed to really suit him. Molly, on the other hand, was originally named Chloe, a name that I couldn’t call her without thinking about Khloe Kardashian. It took a few weeks and many different name changes, before Molly was her name.

When choosing a name for your new cat, the names are unlimited.

  • Consider your favorite book or movie characters
  • Take into account the cat’s personality for any behavior or personality quirks
  • Coat color or eye color
  • Consider a name that follow the cat’s breed heritage

Or, you can consider one of the more popular cat names. I actually considered Lucy as a name for Molly, and since her name was originally Chloe, my pretty kitty was on the popular list. :-)
