Cat Names that Start with S Considerations

In ancient times the letter "S" used to appear like a horizontal wavy W that was used to represent the bow of an archer. An S name could be a great option for your furry little hunter. Of course, there are tons of different reasons a pet parent would choose the letter S as a theme for their new cat’s name.  

Often pet-parents specifically choose the letter "S" because it has a symbolic meaning to them. It could be a nod to a previous pet. Maybe you want to create an alliteration with your last name (Sassy Smith has a great ring to it!). Or, if everyone in your family has a name beginning with "S", surely you don’t want your new kitty to feel left out! 

Pet parents could also choose a name starting with "S" because they simply like the way it sounds. A recent study found that the way a word sounds can cause an emotional response, something that many people notice in poetry and music. The letter "S" is a gentle-sounding consonant that often makes people think of words like soft, serenity, spirit, or sunny. When combined with a consonant, it can also sound powerful like striking, strong, skilled, or smart. 

So, is your cat snuggly or sassy? Silly, or sweet? When choosing a name, your new cat’s personality is a factor to consider. Fur-tunately, there are plenty of "S" names that can suit any personality.
