How to Name Your Main Coon

Sometimes, you just need a little inspiration or encouragement to find the perfect name. No worries, we have you covered.

If you’ve found yourself in a naming pickle, here are some extra tips that may help you come to your final decision:
  • Keep it One to Two Syllables — Longer names with more than two syllables will be more difficult for your cat to learn. This will make it less likely that they will come your way when their name is called. Most cats respond positively to “kitty, kitty” due to the high-pitched, excitable tone you use and the easily recognizable sound. If you’re dead set on a longer name, try out some nickname ideas to keep it short.
  • Make Sure the Name is Appropriate — Remember that you will be making trips to the veterinarian and that your cat will be introduced to everyone who steps foot in your home. Try to choose a name you’re not embarrassed to call aloud or explain to your family and friends.
  • Take Personality into Account — Personality is everything, and Maine Coons typically have incredible, loving personalities. Try to find a name that suits their overall demeanor and personality traits.
  • Think of Your Favorite Characters in Books, TV, and Movies — If you’re completely stumped, try searching for name ideas in characters of your favorite shows, movies, books, or even comics. There’s certainly no harm in naming your cat after one of your most beloved characters.
  • Involve the Household If your new Maine Coon is going to be a family pet, get the whole family involved in the naming decision. After all, they may come up with some great ideas you would have never thought of otherwise. Not only is this a fun way to name your new family member, but it also makes their name much more special.
