Instead of getting a regular cat for a pet, why not get a lynx (wild cat, tiger cat, or bobcat)? Lynxes are more common today in North America (as pets) as people become increasingly aware of their distinct nature.
They are larger than typical domestic cats but generally smaller than other wild cats. Other distinct features include their reflective eyes and distinct stripes, legs, and ears. Lynxes are also playful like cats, especially at a young age.

Help Choosing The Right Name For My Lynx (Bobcat)
Naming seems like an easy task until you get stuck. While we may have offered many names for your lynx above, you may still not be satisfied.
If you want to explore other names, we have some naming inspiration tips below to help you select the best name;
1. Name By Physical Attributes
As mentioned, lynxes have unique physical characteristics that make them stand out from other cats. You can use their unique ears, nose, legs, markings, and size as sources of inspiration when naming.
Color can also be used for naming. Most bobcats are brownish red with white underbellies and black-tipped tails. Their appearance alone gives multiple naming ideas.
2. Name Using Few Syllables
If you wish for a name your bobcat will respond to easily, consider simple names over those with many syllables. If you love a long name, consider shortening it.
Besides making it difficult for your pet to grasp, pet names with many syllables are cumbersome to pronounce repeatedly.
3. Name By Personality
Your bobcat is bound to have unique character traits. Observe and consider names that reflect their personality. If he/she is aggressive and has leader-like tendencies, Mufasa might be a good name.
4. Name By Uniqueness
Pet names should be unique, especially when naming a pet as unique as a lynx. What’s more, if you have more than one bobcat or pet, you need a name that will be distinguishable from the other pet names.
For instance, dogs can be confused by similar pet names (i.e., Scott and Spot).
5. Do A Nickname Test
Once you get several names to choose from, test them. How does your bobcat respond? How do other pets respond? Does the name sound good?
Pet names can be challenging to choose. Lynxes are even more difficult to name than typical pets because of their unique attributes. You should select a name that matches your pet perfectly.
The above names should be adequate or enough as awesome naming ideas. However, when you get challenges picking a name after going through this guide, consider naming resources like blogoftom specifically made to eliminate the stress of naming pets.
Naming should be left to experts when it becomes a challenge. In fact, pet owners can concentrate on their most important role – caring for their pets once they have ensured naming is being handled by true experts.
