We’re thrilled to reveal the top cat names of 2018! As determined by the 2.2 million new cat owners who used our site so far this year. Once again, the Lion King inspired the most popular male cat name of the year. Simba was the top cat for the third year in a row. The biggest surprise, however, was the addition of the name Binx to the top 10. It exploded in popularity this year and landed in the 5th spot – and we’re pretty sure we know why. The beloved Halloween movie Hocus Pocus celebrated its 25th anniversary this year with a huge media blitz that included a 90-minute special with the original actors and even a “Hocus Pocus Marathon” on Halloween night.
