Korean cat names: choosing the perfect name

Cats have the ability to learn only a limited set of words. This is especially relevant if they hear them regularly for a certain amount of time and are positively reinforced. This is one of the reasons why it is important to choose the best name for your cat, allowing it to feel identified when it is 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 extra confusion that 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 therefore, 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!
