100+ Classic & Traditional Names for Cats

Cats used to be given “Cat” names. However, starting in the 1980s, pet owners began giving regular “people names” to their pets. Nowadays, the yearly list of the most popular names for pets is indistinguishable from the list of most popular human baby names.

Traditional or classic cat names are poised for a comeback. They are retro and fun. It makes a lot of sense to give cats true feline names. In the United Kingdom, one of the most traditional names for cats is Tibbles or Tibby. When you mention “Tibbles,” no one is going to think that you are talking about a person!
