World’s Best Compilation of Catchy Cat Names

Congratulations! You adopted a new furball. It’s an amazing feeling bringing home an adorably vicious or inspiringly sassy cat.

Now comes the challenge: choosing a name that lives up to their over-the-top personality! Where to start? There are so many to choose from.

Lucky for you – we’ve got the ultimate list of incredible cat names and the perfect process to help narrow the choices until you find just the right one for your fur baby.

How to Choose a Good Cat Name

1. Consider their personality:

Let’s start by figuring out what kind of cat you’re naming. Is your cat: mischievous, sweet, shy, bold, energetic?

Your cat’s personality should tie into their name, even if it’s to make a fun juxtaposition. If you have a calm, old cat you might name them something fitting, like Gerald, or you could flip the script and call them Speedy Gonzales!

2. Take their looks into account

What does your cat look like? Are they: a tuxedo, a black cat, extra fluffy, endearingly unique? Looks aren’t everything, but an especially unique kitty deserves an equally exceptional name.

Black cat names are often mischievous and alluring or tie back to other famous black cats, like Salem from Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
