cat name survey 2023

Here at Just Cats Veterinary Clinic, a proud member of the Village Vets family, we’re super excited to share the results of our annual pet name survey for 2023! Irish cat owners have truly outdone themselves this year, showing off their creativity and sense of humour. We conducted the survey across 19 Village Vets clinics and included a whopping 100,000 feline patients. The results? Some of the most amusing and imaginative cat names we’ve ever seen.

Check out some of our favourites:

  • Catty Perry
  • Elon Whisk
  • BitCat
  • Joe Biten
  • Potatoe
  • Spud
  • Guinness
  • Lord Litterbox
  • Martha Shreddington
  • Caesar Clawdius
  • Scratchella
  • Tailor Swish
  • Travis
  • Liam
  • Margaret
  • Barbara
  • Sniper
  • Meowstar
  • Siesta
  • Plumpki

From cultural references to personal flair, each name tells a unique story. Joe Biten playfully nods to the American leader, while Catty Perry, TAILor Swish and Travis adds a feline twist to 2023 pop icons. Elon Whisk embodies the adventurous spirit of tech mogul Elon Musk, and BitCat merges cryptocurrency trends with feline charm.

As Roisin Foran, RVN and manager at Just Cats Veterinary Clinic, I can’t help but smile at the creativity our clients show in naming their cats. Every year, these names bring joy to our faces. It’s especially heartwarming to see how each name reflects the unique bond between owner and cat, celebrating their personalities and the happiness they bring into our lives.

These names are a fun reminder of the quirky and affectionate nature of our feline friends and the ingenuity of their owners. Whether inspired by pop culture, technology, or everyday comforts, each name is a testament to the special relationship between Ireland’s cat lovers and their pets.
