The most popular black cat names

It seems that many owners of monochrome felines favour traditional names for their pets. We conducted a survey of over 18,000 cat owners on Facebook (see the results in our infographic) which revealed the most common cat names from across the UK.

Based on the responses from those surveyed, Sooty is the most common name for black cats and Felix is the most common name for black-and-white cats.

What have you named your black or black-and-white cat?
