Most Popular Names That Start with the Letter F

1. Fuzz

Fuzz is one of the most popular cat manes right now, and it sits in this year’s top 10 trending cat names, along with others that don’t start with the letter F, including Norbert, Soju, and Snoop. Fuzz is also becoming more popular and is up 107% over last year.

2. Fury

Fury is another name that has been gaining in popularity in recent years. It comes from the eponymous Nick Fury, a character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the comic books.

The name is perfect for cats since the character has many traits in common with felines, such as strategic prowess, independence, and a cool demeanor.

3. Flounder

Flounder is another name inspired by movies. This time, it’s the Disney film The Little Mermaid. Like cats, Flounder is curious, playful, loyal, and adaptable. The name is up 126% from last year.

4. Fauci

Faici became a popular pet name after the COVID-19 pandemic began, and he began to appear on television and social media frequently to help inform the American public on how to stay safe. While it is still popular, other pandemic names, like Vax, are pushing it down.

5. Fergie

Fergie is a pop icon who got her start as a member of the Black-Eyed Peas before branching out into several other projects. Like Fergie, cats are independent, versatile, graceful, and iconic.

6. Florence

Florence is a great name if you want to name your pet after a beautiful place. Florence is a wonderful city with plenty of artwork and cobblestone streets that would make any cat proud.

Italians also love their cats and have laws that give them free roam of the city and protection from danger. Florence is up 35% from last year.

7. Fox Mulder

Fox Mulder is a character from the popular television show X-Files, where he and his partner, Dana Scully, hunt for clues about the truth about UFOs.

Though the show ended more than 20 years ago, Fox Mulder, without the preceding Special Agent designation, made its first appearance on the most popular list.

8. Frances Bean Burrito

Francic Bean Burrito is a popular cat name this year due to a resurgence of 90s nostalgia. The name honors the daughter of the late musician Kurt Cobain, who died on April 5th, 1994.

9. Furuca Salt

Another name that is popular this year thanks to 90s nostalgia is Furuca Salt, which is a play on Veruca Salt, a popular alternative rock band from Chicago.

10. Furby

Not only did several 90s characters and musicians inspire pet names, but toys also got in on the fun, and we admit, even we were surprised to see the name Furby again. However, Furby was cute, cuddly, playful, and interactive, just like our cats.

Tips for Naming Your Cat

  • Observe your cat’s behavior and personality. If your cat is playful, laid-back, shy, or adventurous, you might want to choose a name that reflects those traits.
  • Some owners enjoy giving their cats human names, like Harry, which can add a touch of humor or irony.
  • Consider your hobbies and interests. If you love gardening, a plant-inspired name might work. If you’re a sports fan, consider names related to your favorite team or sport.
  • When you think you have a name, try it out a few times to see how it feels to say it and how your cat reacts to it before you commit.
