Oct. 29 (UPI) — A pet insurance firm marked National Cat Day by releasing its annual list of the most popular cat names of the year.

John Lewis Pet Insurance, which offers insurance policies for cats, dogs and other pets, said the most popular cat name among surveyed customers in 2019 was Poppy.

Rounding out the top 10 were Bella, Molly, Tilly, Daisy, Lola, Millie, Rosie, Luna and Lily.

The first traditionally masculine name on the list, Charlie, came in at No. 11.

The name Smudge made its first appearance on the annual list this year, coming in at 21st in popularity.
