Does your cat have one of the most common, boring cat names?

Does your cat have one of the most common, boring cat names?
Advertising's cat name survey lets you know whether you're a boring asshole who gave your cat a predictable name.


This cat is plotting its escape from its owner because she named it Simba. (via Thinkstock) has released an infographic with the most popular cat names. So, if your cat has one of these names, you can rest easy knowing that thousands of people had the same uncreative idea as you. The top 20 names are:

Boy Cat Names

  1. Charlie
  2. Jack
  3. Jasper
  4. Dexter
  5. Milo
  6. Fred
  7. Simon
  8. Simba
  9. George
  10. Boomer

Girl Cat Names

  1. Lily
  2. Chloe
  3. Lucy
  4. Bella
  5. Luna
  6. Maddie
  7. Emma
  8. Coco
  9. Molly
  10. Callie

One of my favorite parts of the research is that cross-referenced the top cat names with the top 50 baby names of 2014, so we now know that 7 of the 20 top cat names are also among the most popular human names from the last year (you can see which ones on the infographic below). I really hope there are people out there who love these names so much that they give both their baby and pet the same names. Especially if the cat is named Charlie and the child is named Charlie Jr.
