Names for hangovers: it all depends on the sound
Short, concise names have the advantage that they are particularly easy to learn for the cat or tomcat and are easy to call. Most given names have two or at most three syllables. Longer or particularly short names usually develop into two-syllable nicknames over time. So “Sam” usually becomes “Sammy” and “Maximilian” becomes “Maxi”.
Furthermore, the name should be sonorous and melodic so that your cat will memorize it particularly quickly. Long vowels and comparatively few consonants are advantageous. Examples: “Snowy” is a more appropriate cat name than “Snowball”. And “Bärli” is better than “Bärchen”. Cats especially like the vowels “i” and “a”.
Cat names: meaningfulness of the name
Some owners want a name that makes outsiders think of a cat, like Mikesch or Figaro. Other cat owners choose a generally positively associated tomcat name for their male cat. For example, a cat named “Leo” reminds us of a strong, proud lion. We associate “tiger” with a wild animal in the wild. And according to the English term, we associate the name “Lucky” with happiness. Occasionally, a clearly male name is desired.
