How to Name Your Tabby Cat

Naming your tabby cat doesn’t have to be difficult, as long as you have a plan before brainstorming names and hitting lists like ours.

Firstly, you should come up with a list of names that you like. You can brainstorm these and use long lists of names like the ones below. Simply read through them and select names that you like. If you have friends or family members helping you choose a name, include their chosen names as well.

Next, you need to narrow your list down. The fewer names you can narrow it down to, the better. Aim for five or fewer.

Third, now that you have a shorter list of names, it’s time to try them out on your feline. Often, some names just fit some cats better than others. Therefore, it is best to try out the names you’ve chosen on your cat to ensure that they “work” with their personality.

Finally, after you’ve tried each name out, it’s time to decide on one!
