Most Popular Cat Names of 2018

Most Popular Names for Your Cats


In a lot of ways, 2018 was a year of change. That is, apart from the most popular cat names. In fact, a staggering 38 of the 40 names on this list were on the 2017 list as well. Indeed, the top 5 female cat names are exactly the same as 2017, although they are in a slightly different order. Willow (7th) is the only new entrant for the female name list, whilst Binx (5th) is the only new entrant for the male list. The biggest mover is Tiger, which has dropped from 3rd last year to 10th this year. The two names that have dropped out of this list altogether are Belle and Caesar. Both Nala and Simba maintain their reign at the top – The Lion King is still having such an effect on people. The results of this study were created by Find Cat Names and were based on 2.1 million new cat owners who used their site this year.

Our Core Values

Wondering why you should choose Catipilla? These values underpin every Catipilla creation.

Our cats deserve the best.
No cat owner wants to leave their cat to a day of boredom when they leave for work. Our cats deserve to be entertained, to play and stretch and climb (and, on those lazy summer afternoons, to nap in total luxury).

Cat furniture should benefit cats whilst being a stylish addition to your home.
But it shouldn’t cost a fortune. We raise the bar for cat furniture through innovative design and by providing high-quality products and exceptional value for money. We’re confident that you won’t find anything like Catipilla on the market.

Cat furniture should be sustainable and last a lifetime.
That’s why all of our Catipilla products are made from 85% recycled materials and built to last.
