These Are the Most Popular Cat Names in Every State

We mapped out America's favorite cat names with the help of Veterinary Pet Insurance. From coast to coast, Bella's hard to beat

If you’re finally growing tired of calling your beloved cat “Kitty,” you’ve come to the right place. The good people at Veterinary Pet Insurance analyzed their database of 75,000 insured cats and shared with us the most popular cat name in every state. Try cuddling up to an Oliver in New York or dangling yarn for a Tiger in Illinois. (Some states—like Wyoming, for example—have relatively few policy holders with VPI and no duplicate cat names, in which case the most popular name nationally was used.)

Interestingly, the top feline names are strikingly similar to the top canine names: Bella, Max and Lucy are among the most popular choices for both species.
