Ahh decisions, decisions… deciding on names for your new Exotic Shorthair or Persian kitten often isn’t easy. Personal preferences usually play a role when choosing kitten names. Choosing a kitten name needs a bit less practical thought than choosing a name for a dog or a puppy though, as you are hardly likely to be found yelling your kitten’s name in a public park!
However, the kitten naming task can still be challenging, so here are a few practical tips that can help you when choosing a kitten name:
- To make it easier to call your kitten’s name, choose a kitten name that is short with 1 or 2 syllables. And if it’s a long kitten name, think about what the short version will be.
- You want to make sure you can easily pronounce the kitten name. It should just roll off your tongue.
- Learn about your kitten’s personality and find a suitable name. The characteristics of kittens can vary a lot from breed to breed but also from animal to animal.
- Your kitten’s breed can also give you some inspiration for a cat name or kitten name.
- Pick a name that will grow with your kitten. For example, “Kitten” may be less appropriate for a full-grown cat.
