About Us

Find Cat Names was Founded in March 2014 by Kyle & Jessi Larson. Find Cat Names provides a fun, interactive experience for new cat owners looking for just the right pet name. The site allows users to sort names by preferred style and interests. More than 2 million people use Find Cat Names each year when picking a name for their cat.

How It All Started

When adopting our yellow lab puppy we were trying to come up with a name that we both liked, so we turned to Google to find some good ideas. Unfortunately all the sites we kept finding had either only a few ideas or huge A-Z lists with thousands of terrible name ideas.

Kyle, as a web designer & developer, decided he could do better and got started on designing our sister site My Dog’s Name. After spending countless evenings categorizing names in spreadsheets and setting up the backend code we finally launched the site & named our puppy Toby.

We found tons of other dog lovers that needed similar help finding a great name and we knew we could leave out our cat pals! We’ve got a whole bunch of cats in our family including our parents and siblings that we couldn’t leave out, so we went back to our lists and tailored them specifically with our cat friends in mind before launching Find Cat Names!

Since launching this site we’ve also created a site for even more animal pals: NamesNerd!
