Choosing Korean cat names for your cat

Cats have the ability to learn only a limited set of words. They need to associate their Korean cat name with themselves. This is especially relevant when helping them to learn boundaries in the home and when we use positive reinforcement for training. This is one of the reasons why it is important to choose the best name for your cat, allowing them to identify it when they are called.

Choosing the perfect name for your cat can sometimes be tricky, but don’t worry. Here are some of our best tips to take into consideration when naming your cat:

  • Choose a short name: ideally, this cat name should contain a maximum of two syllables. This way your cat will be able to learn it well, without the confusion a longer name could cause.
  • Avoid colloquialisms: avoid using a name of a family member or one which you commonly use in your vocabulary, as it can confuse your cat.
  • Use characteristics as inspiration: all cats are unique and this uniqueness should be used as inspiration when naming your cat. Take into account your cat’s physical or behavioral characteristics.
  • Be original: be creative and spend a few days thinking about this name.

We don’t recommend changing a cat’s name during its life. Therefore, it’s important to make sure you are 100% happy with the name you will teach it from when it is young.

Korean cat names are particularly popular for many reasons. One of them is that they meet the above categories. There are many cute Korean cat names which can suit the personality of your cat. Many have only 1-2 syllables with hard consonant sounds which are easy for your cat to discern, especially if you live in an English speaking household.
