For the female felines, the clear frontrunner this year is ‘Poppy’, knocking last year’s favourite of ‘Luna’ off the top spot. In second place is a long-standing popular name, ‘Bella’, closely followed by ‘Molly’.

One determined female cat name that is slowly clawing (pardon the pun) it’s way back up the list is ‘Daisy’, which was in 10th place last year but now holds the slightly loftier position of fifth place. Go Daisy!

  6. Jasper
  7. George

For the handsome Tomcats, the name ‘Charlie’ comes top of the list for 2017. This replaces last year’s favourite, ‘Oliver’, and is closely followed by all-time classic cat name, ‘Oscar’ which comes in second this year.

Falling slightly out of favour for the boys are last year’s second and third most favoured names, these are Max and Milo, which now hold the fourth and fifth position in our list.
