When my cousin was about five months pregnant, she stopped over to meet my new baby girl and brought me provisions that would have made any ravenous breastfeeding mama gleeful. She also visited with my cats because, well, you really can't sit on our couch without giving at least one of them a belly rub. All of our cats have great names that could also double as human ones, just like many of the best dog names are also good for babies. But my cousin commented on how she particularly loved Simon. Four months later, her Simon was born and she texted, "I told you I loved your cat's names" with a winking face and picture of her gorgeous boy.
If you're stuck on a name for your soon-to-be bundle of joy, then don't be afraid to poke around name lists specified for cats and dogs, or simply visit a pet-loving friend and get the feel for the personality of their furry Mia or Max. After all, it has been my experience that on some of my worst days I prefer my feline family members over any singular human being — and I make no apologies for that. So why wouldn't you want to name your kid after an awesome furry friend?
