What to Know Before Choosing Maine Coon Cat Names

It’s important to take your cat’s personality into consideration. This includes whether you plan on naming your cat accordingly or for the sake of irony.

You’ll also want to consider their environment. If there will be other humans or pets in your home living with your new Maine coon, think about their names. While you may not be using your cat’s name for the purpose of recall like a dog, having a name they can understand and won’t be confused with other family members can help in basic training.

Making sure nobody else in the household has a name similar to your Main coon’s can help prevent confusion.
