Names can sound good but they can also have a hidden meaning as well. For example, Leo is Latin for “lion” and is the second most popular male cat name in 2020. Since cats look like tiny lions complete with a mane, Leo can be a perfect name for your majestic feline.

Maximilian or Maximus means “greatest” in Latin. However, most people just shorten it to Max. Max is easy to say and is probably easier for the cat to recognize. Assuming, of course, that it bothers to pay attention to what you’re saying in the first place.
