Top Kitten Names of 2012: Did Your Cat Make The Cut?

Top Kitten Names of 2012: Did Your Cat Make The Cut? via Babble

What is your kitten’s name?

Many of us had furry additions to our families in 2012. More than ever before, pet owners painstakingly poured over potential names for their new canine and feline babies. With the days of a pet being just an animal, and not a family member being long gone, today’s pet owners choose their names with care. Most tend to get a little creative or personalize their pet’s name with a special family memory. Some simply like the name.

Vetstreet compiled a list of the most popular kitten names of 2012. Their search was extensive: they looked at 643,000 kitten names!

The end results were a fine mix of pop culture and traditional cat names.

We actually have a Chloe (which we spell Cloe), and a Lily, which also made the top ten list.

Read through the first five male and female names to make the list:
