Somеthing “Pаwsitive” Abоut 2023; The Mоst Populаr Cat Namеs!

Towards the end of each year, websites compile lists for the most popular names used throughout. May be one of the best things about 2023! And our favorites are of course the ones for pets; specifically the cat names. While you are likely to see the commonly used names across all animals, some are welcomed in the “human crossover”.

Did you earn any spots on the 2023 list?

I’m very curious to see if any are multi-year top “dogs”. Thankfully, this isn’t the first year we’ve gotten to cover this very important information! Because honestly, there’s nothing more off-putting than your neighbor yelling “GoldenBallz” while looking for their cat…just for example.

Let’s look back at 2019’s list that split into male and female CATegories. Oliver is the reigning champ!

Last but not least, I discovered another list for the Best Cute Pet Names for 2023.

It was the well-known and established Reader’s Digest that took a crack at this list, although a bit biased. Because I know plenty of people that think the more “unapproachable” the pet, the cuter they are. NO matter their names. But I do have to admit, while some of these are kind of adorable for any animals…should some should stick to the two-legged?

  1. Latte
  2. Queen
  3. Elsa
  4. Baby Yoda
  5. Stan Lee
  6. Cupcake
  7. Loki
  8. Lizzo
  9. Spirit
  10. Simba
  11. Maisel
  12. Hussle
  13. Stevie Nix
  14. Taylor Swift
  15. Bo Peep
  16. Stormie
  17. Bobba
  18. Doobie
  19. Rose
  20. Juggernaut

Just kidding on that last one, thought I’d slip Jugg in there considering we believed it to be purrfect for our tortie foster fail. She pushed her way through, and UNDER her siblings to get to the food before we knew she was female. But sometimes THEY just pick their names! Or that’s what we’re going with.

I’m going to keep searching for a list of the FUNNIEST animal names or we’ll just have to compile our own.

So do you agree with this years lists of the most popular and cute animal names? What name did YOU CHOOSE for your fur-kid?
