What Makes a Name Unisex?
When it comes to unisex cat names, there are no hard-and-fast rules. In general, unisex names are those that native speakers of your language consider to be gender-neutral. But some names that are traditionally seen as masculine or feminine – such as Charlie or Dakota – start being used for both genders over time. And of course, you can always choose a name that has never had any gender association, like Sushi or Mochi.
Build-a-Name 🧱Take your own name and turn it into a unisex one by adding a prefix, suffix, or removing part of it. For example, Bob can be changed to Bobo. Maggie can be turned into Mag, and Ashley shortens nicely to Ash. If you don’t want your cat to have such a similar name to yours, you can then change the first letter to something else. For example, Bobo can become Kobo.
