In the South, there's only one thing we love more than our family, and that's our loving pets. After all, you can choose your pets, but you can't choose your family. We're not denying that these four-legged creatures have left a lasting imprint on our hearts. They've been there through thick and thin and won't judge us for eating an entire pecan pie. You can always count on them to greet you at the door or snuggle up right beside you after a long day. Although cats can stir up quite a bit of mischief and choose to ignore us, these furry creatures nuzzle their way into our lives and more importantly into our hearts. We owe it to our purr-fect companions to give them the wittiest names possible. We got our inspiration from a variety of places, from Taylor Swift's leading ladies (Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson) to the female star of Lion King (Nala), but the opportunities are endless. What is the grand inspiration behind popular female cat names? Does the inventiveness lie in the female leads that you adore? Or could it be an ode to a strong female family member of the past? Perhaps the cat got your tongue. Not to worry, here are the best female cat names with a Southern twist. From classic and sweet to new and exciting, there's an option for every type of feline friend. We've got you covered on cute kitten names. Trust us, you'll have your pick of the litter.
