If you're deciding to adopt a pet soon, picking the names can be soooo hard.  With all the names you can choose from, it better be a good one!

I named my cats Ramen and Noodles.  Ram-Ram and Noodz for short... and no I do not regret it one bit.  Now, if I was picking a human baby's name obviously it would be more realistic and practical - that's why I went with cats instead of human children.

I found this list of every popular cat name in every state in America.  Let me tell ya, sometimes picking the name can really be meaningful to someone and most of the time it's a fun name you let your kids pick and it ends up being Booger... maybe don't let them choose next time haha.

For example, Alabama's most popular cat name is Lucy.  I know a few people with that name, so I just can't seem to like that name for a cat.  Am I wrong for thinking that?

Delaware's most popular cat name is also pretty common: Misty

When I think of Misty, I think of grey cats. I don't know why, maybe because a lot of my friends have grey cats named Misty.

Maine's most popular cat name is Max...

I find this to be more of a dog's name but I guess it works depending on the type of cat!  I would say orange Tabbies would make a good Max. Look how cute!!!

And Mississippi's most popular cat name is Sebastian!

That's such a cute name!!!  Though I do know many humans named Sebastian, I honestly don't mind it as a pet name.  I'm thinking a Bengal could be a good Sebastian!

And finally, Illinois' favorite cat name is..... TIGER!

This actually surprised me because I don't know a single cat named Tiger.  It really makes sense why people would name their cat that, but Illinoisans?  I'd think it would be Oliver or Bella, but I guess I was really far off.

Hands down, if I had a Maine Coon I would 100% name it Tiger.  I feel like it's only right and most deserving, yeah?  This breed is sooooo big and beautiful.

Was Tiger what you were expecting?  It might not be the ideal name for a lot of Illinois folks, but the state has spoken.  So next time you decide to adopt, maybe Tiger is the next best choice? Find the entire list of most popular cat names here.
