Here are the 10 most popular names for cats this year for Japanese people!

As every year, the Japanese site Iris Pet unveils the list of the most popular names of cats. This is established in the form of a survey: owners who had to find a name for their kitten during the year are interviewed and a classification is then constructed based on the responses. We had published that of last year around the same period, and this year again, if we discover some new features, we also find some classics: Nana, Hana, Koko, Momo, Chibi or Fuku… Definitely, you don’t risk straying from the trend if you call your kitten by a name not exceeding two syllables!

Here is the list of trends for 2020 – 2021. To be continued if you adopt a little fur ball this year and you lack ideas!
