Popular Kitten Names: 2012's Trendiest Cat Monikers

From Vetstreet's Shayna Meliker:

Naming your new cat is a difficult and important decision — after all, he'll have to live with that moniker for the rest of his life, and so will you. But naming a kitten can also be tons of fun!

We culled our records and came up with the a current list of the 10 most popular cat names. It's no surprise that human names like Chloe and Charlie are trending right now, but we also found that old classics like Kitty and Tiger are still hanging in there. And we bet you can guess which box-office smash hit is behind the number-one name for female kittens. (Hint: It's about vampires.)

Although we're holding out for a kitten named Katniss (after the heroine of The Hunger Games, of course) — but Catniss might be more appropriate.
