As a cat lover myself, I have had 4 cats who have all had names that fall onto this list!  How many of these are names you’ve used for your cats?


  1. I have a Tigger but also have a Michileen (micki) a name that will never make a list, but a stray that hid in an auto shop amongst the Michelin tires..

  2. My brother had a Milo but none of our other cats’ names appear on the list.

    In order of appearance:
    Pinky, Milo, Suzy, Angela, Colorado, Denver, Trixie & Celestine

  3. Had a Tigger once but other cats were Bitsy, Rascal, Georgie Mittens, Bandit, Frieda, Agatha, Boomer, and current one is Roo who has one underdeveloped front paw that doesn’t reach the floor. His walk is rather lurching–sort of like a kangaroo.

  4. The only one off the list that I’ve had, I once had a Bailey.

    We now have Tiki, Charles (NOT Charlie) and Goliath, aka Golly.

  5. I have a Sam, but he goes by Blue, Misha Blue, Smeesh and just about anything BUT Sam (he’s a Russian Blue). Then I have Jake, Ophelia, Zander, and Tyler. All cats.

  6. I have four Tabbies, Murphies, Memphis, Milan and Screach (because he screaches for his food. Ive had Siamese named, Honda, Isuzu, Kawasaki, Samari, WonTon and Saki.
