Over 5,000 years ago the ancient Egyptians worshipped cats as Gods, and with over 23% of Australian households owning a cat (*Source) it seems that the love of cats continues through the ages.
A wiki page on popular cat names reveals a myriad of names across a variety of countries and territories. Trying to distinguish which is truly the most popular is a matter of opinion…and geography.
For the sake of this article, the borders have been removed and territories ignored as we investigate the truly strange, unique, odd, funny, and at times obscure names given to our feline friends.
The funny clever cat names that make us smile.
A lot of really clever and unique cat names are based on certain physical features or personality traits that cats display. A cat that loves garbage would be well suited to a name like Oscar the Grouch, while a self-obsessed and clean would be better suited to a name like Snooty Von Catsbum for example. There are lots of other unusual names out there for our feline friends. All comments and judgements in this article are the author’s own. Have fun naming your cat and hopefully this list can help you come up with one suitably quirky and unique.
