Make Choosing Your Pet’s Name Super Fun

Personal preferences usually play a role when selecting your new furry bundle of joy’s name. As we welcome a new kitten or puppy in the household, the process of naming them becomes a family event where everyone gets to pitch their preferred name. 

Here are some fun ideas for naming your cat or dog:

Vote For The Best Name

Have a “Name My Pet” event over the weekend. Invite your family and friends to join in the fun. Let each one say their chosen name and why they picked it. You can then select the best top three for voting. If you’re happy with the name that had the most number of votes, then voila, your new pet has a name!

Name Reveal

Ask your family and friends to write down all their suggested names on a piece of paper, since you are the pet parent, you get to choose the name you prefer from the list. Make an event out of it. Towards the end of the occasion, reveal the name you’ve picked out and give credit to the person who suggested it.


Choosing the best cat and dog names can be tricky. It’s what they will go by for the rest of their lives, so it’s best to put a lot of thought into it. You want them to have something that matches their personality and yet not too confusing when you call them.

So, what will you name your new fur baby?
