How to Pick Out That Perfect Name

You just got that new kitten that you've always wanted. Now you need to decide on the perfect name for your furry feline friend.

It's not that easy to pick out a name. Things like their personalities, coloring, gender, and age are among the things that you can take into consideration. People use other ideas too, like a favorite place, fictional character, or a song.

There is an infinite number of names to choose from and it may seem overwhelming, but don't worry, you can find the right one. You just need to get to know your cat a bit.

One of the best things about cats is that they have the most wonderfully distinct personalities. They can be cuddly, standoffish, playful or shy. They may take a swipe at anyone they don't like, or hiss if they've had enough petting for the day.

All of those traits can help you make a decision, but if you still can't make up your mind, and rock music is what inspires you, then hopefully you can find what you are looking for in this list.

Almost every type of rock music is covered, including hard, southern, classic, folk and punk. So turn on your favorite playlist, sit back, and get inspired.

Is your cat a classic rock kind of guy? Does he only like to snuggle when hits from well-known bands like The Beatles or The Rolling Stones come on the airwaves?

Then maybe something inspired by an iconic classic rock song is the name for him.

Heavy Metal and Hard Rock

Some cats just have that hard rocking, headbanging vibe to them. They like strutting their stuff and look good doing it.

These types of felines need a heavy metal name to go along with their strong personalities. Maybe one of these will fit the bill.

Southern Rock

Do you have a laid-back southern belle or beau for a cat? Are they proud, loyal, and love those lazy summer days on the porch? Maybe a Southern rock song would be a good choice.
