Top 10 Trendiest Names For Your Cat


According to Vet Street, the trendiest cat name of the year was a tie between Dexter and Penny. I’m not really a fan of either of those names, so I thought I’d come up with my own list of names, which you can, and some say you should, give to your cat.

1. Eric

Why not name your cat Eric?

2. Fauntleroy

Little-known fact: Donald Duck’s middle name is Fauntleroy. Now it can also be your cat’s name.

3. A Visit From the Goon Squad

Why not name your cat after Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Visit From the Goon Squad?

4. Juju Beads

If you name your cat Juju Beads, maybe your cat will have magical powers.

5. Humperdinck

Why not name your cat after Anglo-Indian pop singer from the 60s and 70s Engelbert Humperdinck?

6. Chief Barrel Belly

Why not name your cat after a somewhat obscure Guided By Voices song?

7. Witch Baby

Why not name your cat Witch Baby?

8. Mrs. Francis Picabia

Why not name your cat after the wife of Dadaist painter Francis Picabia (as my good friend did)?

9. Eamon Kilbride

Why not name your cat after the Scottish man who died while dancing “gangnam style”?

10. Manx

Why not name your cat after the longest-living breed of cat? That way your cat will live a long time, or just long enough. TC mark
