Have you recently brought home a brand new kitty? Congrats! Then, to kick off the excitement, the time has come to pick out the best name for your furry little kitten. Naming a pet cat Muffin or Max is really dated! Keep in mind that your cat is a living breathing individual.
Why not select a name that could capture your kitten’s disposition or appearance?
The following are some recommendations in choosing cat names.
Opt for a name that you can shout from the front porch. If it is easy to shout and easy to say, it would be a lot easier for your cat to recognize and get accustomed to the name. Research demonstrates that cats answer best to names that are 1 to 2 syllables.
Pick out a name that can grow with your cat. For instance, if you name your cat “Fluffy”, it could no longer be a proper description once the cat is an adult.
Begin to observe your kitten’s unique personality. Each and every cat is unique and your cat’s specific habits will help you to uncover the best name. Good examples are “Cuddles” and “Bouncy”. Attempt to capture your cats unique personality with a name.
Following are the most funny, unique and cute cat names we’ve discovered.

We named our persian Veronicat
We have 2 cats – Thunder Paws and Meatloaf
We have three cats, Jasmine, Oliver, and Rubin-J. Human names seemed to fit them better.
I agree. Names that are too cutesy or babyish detract from a companion animal’s own dignity. They may not care, but I do.
I have Hades and Chloe. I have had a okie and Mybqueen was pepper
Trey got his name because he was my third cat. And thank you actor Will Smith for the idea (he being a Jr. and his oldest son being a II, they call him Trey). Trevor (who was originally named Runt by his previous owners) got his name from the son of guitarist Steve Lukather of Toto. So now, I have a Trevor and Trey going on in my house!
Our cat is Anni because she was an ANNIversary gift.
I had a cat I named Xerox, he looked like a copy of his brother Pumpkin.
Ours are Manny, Moe and Jack! We had Jill but someone adopted her.
My cats are Pixlee and Robin Williams
My 3 are:
Pink Moray Puffytail
Joe Magellen Speckletoes
Pincess! Pincess Squeaky Sunshine!
We have 2 cats ,older one (Oleo ,younger one is Whiskers) My HUSBAND NAMED HIM WHISKERS CAUSE HE HAD SUCH LONG WHISKERS ,EVEN FROM TIME YOUNG KITTY. ,OLEO was going be some name like buttercup ,seemed like too long name for him at time ,
My cat is called Saffron or Saffy for short . she was named by the girls at the RSPCA where I adopted her from because of the golden hue she has to her coat.
I loved the name and it suites her down to the ground.
Our cat names is Star Jones (STAR). She is such a Diva. We love her to death and she knows it
My special kitty was a Siamese, his name was lord Littlefoot
The cat I have is a mixed Russian Blue and he originally was named ” Feister” however that all changed when at the age of 2 weeks old, he’d get out of his box of other kittens, demanding his bottle of milk. He’d stare and beg with those cute black eyes. I couldn’t figure out how a two week old kitten manage to get out. I stuck him back in the box with the rest of them and sure enough, he’d dig a single claw hole into the side of the box, hoist himself up and kept repeating that until he flipped himself over the edge and onto the floor. Well? He just earned his name Houdini. That’s been his name ever since.
Here are a few I have had:
Rocky he liked to sit up on his haunches and box with his front paws!
Mama Cat she showed up at our barn with two kittens and ended up staying for 18 years!
Cleopatra a long haired stray with slanted beautiful bright blue eyes
Ghost another stray that showed up at the barn the evening of the day we buried our 15 year old barn cat, Sylvester.
Except for an extra white spot on his nose, Ghost could have been Sylvester’s twin!
Junior a tiny cat who also looked like Sylvester, they became great buddies. Junior was the only male cat Sylvester
would let stay.
Tripod due to an accident, had to have a front leg amputated.
Morris big orange cat that resembled the TV cat food ads Morris
One of my most favorite cats I named Pookey. I had her 18 years. I had a cat named Missy who had 13 kittens. I got two kittens once, a tiger kitten and an all-black cat and I just got back from visiting Fort Zachary Taylor in Florida so I named the tiger cat Zachary and he liked pizza and the black cat Taylor and he had a long tail. They were such good buddies. They both had tragic deaths. Zachary had Cancer and Taylor had a blood clot. It hurt me bad. I adopt a lot of strays and many strays adopt me. I adopted one cat and called her Kitty. She was the cat I had before Zachary and Taylor. I gave her my every second. When I went to Florida, gone 9 days I had my parents check on her every day. She died the day I was returning home. I say it was from a broken heart because she missed me. I was so sad. That is why I said I would always have two cats from that point on so they would never be lonely if I had to go somewhere. Now I currently have 3 cats. The most I’ve ever had at one time. These cats all adopted me. Mr. Big Boy Stretch, Big Boy for short – he always greets you by stretching out his paws front and back, and Little Girl adopted me at the same time. I put up posters for find their owners. I found their owners. Little Girl lived next door, right next door and Big Boy lived blocks away on a busy road. I brought them back to their owners and they both came back to me and have been with me for 14 years. The newcomer is 2 now and his name is Benjamin Morris. Ben for short but he looks like Morris the cat and he and the dog Spice are the same color and sleep together though Spice pretends not to like him but she does. Yup I’m an animal lover. I love all animals but cats are my favorite.
I have a black cat who we named Nyx. My son and I had just finished reading one if the Percy Jackson books which is based off of Greek mythology. Nyx is the goddess of night, nightmares….perfect name for a black cat.
Our most memorable cat, was a big Maine Coon cat named Tabby “Tabs”, his mom was my daughter’s beautiful white cat.. He grew to be largest most handsome cat I’ve ever seen, with his moms beautiful face and everyone exclaimed over his size and beauty. He loved me back and it broke my heart when he died of leukemia at a young age. I still have tears to think of him.
Bonnie & Clyde
I was reading Carole Nelson Douglas’ Midnight Louis books when we got my girl. She was gray, not black, but she certainly has their hutzpah. Thus, Twilight Louise

I have had cats and dogs most of my life, I’m 63. My most favorite pet of all was my little darling Chessie. She was a tabby, a tiny orphan when we got her. Her eyes were still blue and we had to bottle feed her for a couple weeks. She was truly exceptional. She would sit if you asked her and if you said “be ferocious”, she would sit up on her hind legs. If you put out your hand and said “put her there” she would shake hands with you. If we were out in the garden or out on the property you could say “time to go in” and she would trot into the house. About two years ago Chessie got very sick, it was renal failure. She hung on for two years, a nightly pill, and special food helped her. Finally she got really sick and was just miserable. I took her to the vet and knew it was going to be a one way trip. I still miss her terribly. These little angels bring so much love and happiness into our lives we are blessed to have them. I’m talking with the local cat rescue lady and she is helping me to find a new little friend. But I will always miss my darling little Chessie.
My cat is named Panthera….
She talks back to me and she has a very big ego… Like a lioness :_)
Hi, my doctor named her female cat Aspirine (we’re in Belgium, French speakers). While I named my Tom cat Mickey (on the paperwork), but Tikiki, (say teekeekee) at home.
We have three cats. One is Simba, one is Tiger, one is Meatball. Idk how we came up with that name.
Tiger acts and looks like a Tiger. He’s very anti-social except around Meatball (who’s a girl). Tiger LOVES marking things. And bringing back dead mice/birds/rabbits. He actually marked me once lol.
Simba is very friendly. One time when we let him outside her tried to be friends with a squirrel.
Meatball is fat. That’s all there is to it. She loves to eat.
We also “have” a stray cat we named Monkey. Because she loves climbing around outside. You can always find her in a tree or even on the roof.
My dog is named PB&J because that’s his fav food.
One of our cats is named Chip Because he loves chips.
Our other cat is named Mouse because that’s her fav food.
You see where i’m going with this?
Snickles and Peasy
Couch Potatoes is a cute name. My cats Are Prince (Baby) & Snorkels !!!
