Rover.com, the nation’s Airbnb for pets, released its annual survey of the most popular cat names.

The survey polled users from across the Rover.com network to identify which traditional names remain at the top of the list, what new names are emerging to reflect pop culture, and what naming trends differentiate dogs and cats.
