Final Words

All in all, I hope you liked this article and the pictures I’ve made to make your search more vivid. Choosing a name for a new pet cat can be hard, but it is certainly an interesting beginning to your relationship with your furry friend.

Korean culture is broad and amazing; I’ve chosen only a portion of it to put into this article. However, there are only so many words that can be used as a name for our feline friends.

I was amazed at how many words in Korean mean the same thing in English. You can perhaps name your cat Yippee Haeng Bok Ee, and it would mean Happy Happiness. Truly amazing! I hope you had fun and that you found the best name for your new cat.
