The choice of name is one of the aspects that humans are most excited about when they adopt a new pet. We, cats, really do not care what name they assign us. However, there are some words and names that we can associate more easily when a person calls us.

Do you already know how you are going to call your new pet? Today, we will tell you the secrets to choose the best name for your cat, and which are the most common in the world, with ideas for male and female cats.

How to choose a cat name

The vast majority of experts in animal behaviour agree that the perfect name to call your pet should be as short as possible. We, cats, respond better to one or two-syllable words when they call us, and according to what they say, much better if they end in “i”.

Although it is not completely proven, it seems that the sound ‘i’ at the end of the name catches our attention, and we usually look more often when someone calls us by our name. Keep in mind that each cat is different, and in addition to the education you give to your pet, his/her character will also influence on the fact that he/she will listen or not when you call him/her by his/her name.

When we analyse the most common names in the world to call a pet, they are usually short, or diminutives are used. The most repeated ones are those names of known characters, especially famous cats from movies or cartoons.
