We did a post recently on Siamese cats that we playfully titled Siamese, If You Please! There were many wonderful emails from readers who shared photos of their Siamese furbabies with us and we noticed some very interesting and unusual names. So much so that we decided to do a post on 10 top names for Siamese cats.
This names below were contributed by our paw-pal Abby Beal who is a pet parent and life-long animal lover. Her site is called PurrfectCatNames.com
Perhaps we should have titled the post “Ten Terrific Names for Siamese Cats” because it’s so difficult to narrow down to only 10. But alas we were feline the need to be succinct.

Without further ado, here is Abby’s list of Top 10 Names for your Siamese (in no purrticular order):
Everyone knows this classic word that magicians use. And if you have a Siamese cat, you’re going to become quite familiar with their own particular “magic.” My aunt had 3 Siamese cats that would constantly climb to the very top of the roof at the start of the day, only coming down when they’d decided on enough playtime. Wizard is another great name for a cat who pops in and out of seemingly nowhere.
2. Lillian (or “Lily”)
This name is inspired for Lillian Jane Veley, who co-founded the official Siamese Cat Club in 1901. She was given a pair of the cats by her brother. You could also name a pair of cats, after her pair of Siamese cats – who were named Pho and Mia!
You may be instantly reminded of fall when you hear of this, as it’s used in many seasonal dishes such as pumpkin pie. Nutmeg is similar to a Siamese cat’s coat color and this unique spice is one that you notice, and makes you say “wow!” just as your cat does each day.
4. Elizabeth Taylor
Did you know that Elizabeth Taylor owned a Siamese cat? Taylor was known for having mesmerizing, beautiful eyes. Siamese cats have these too. This name is an ideal choice, especially for your elegant female Siamese cat.
A purrfect name for a female Siamese cat. Did you know there is actually a “Lilac point Siamese cat?” This beautiful flower is a great name too for a cat that is super stunning. Take a look at other flower and flora themed names too, such as Rose, Magnolia and Fern, for a feminine name.
Like cartoons? Sagwa, the Chinese Siamese Cat was inspired by an Amy Tan novel. It appeared on PBS in the U.S.A… This is a charming name to give your Siamese cat!
Looking for a sweet name for your Siamese cat or kitten? Try Cocoa, as many Siamese have a lot of light brown in their coats. The sweetness will also remind you of their lovely, friendly temperament.
8. George Lucas
Everyone knows that Siamese cats are super intelligent – geniuses even by some accounts. So why not name your cat after someone who is totally brilliant and amazing? George Lucas created the Star Wars movies and also the Indiana Jones movies too, that’s pretty cool, smart and amazing too!
Now there is smart, and then there is being somewhat of an evil genius. Or at least a feline who is, well, a touch devious! Theo is a Siamese cat in the UK who became quite the kleptomaniac kitty. Just imagine trying to explain to your neighbors why you have all of their socks! https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-25154820
10. Andrea Bocelli
One thing we haven’t touched upon, is the very distinctive & unique meow that a Siamese cat has. It sounds sort of like “M-ia-ow!” Sometimes they can be quite loud, but it certainly has a touch of music to it. That’s why we think you should name your Siamese feline after one of the best Opera singers in the world, Andrea Bocelli! Perhaps they can sing together one day?
Although we focused on the Siamese, the above names are flexible enough to suit many cat breeds and purrsonalities.
Special thanks to Abby for her insightful, clever and imaginative recommendations. Please share your favorite names for Siamese cats or kittens with us in the “Leave a Reply” box below.
We have a blue point called Zsa Zsa after Zsa Zsa Gabor. She was a gorgeous cat and a real princess!

My boy is named Maximilian because he’s a royal to me.
We have had JASPER a seal point
ISIS my first queen, Alotta (Quelotta’s baby) chocolate tabby point, ALF (Alien Life Form) Lilac point, AZIZI IRISI (Beloved of Isis), BELA (Grizzabella) & our latest kitten is BRADLEY. Many many other names for the kittens we have bred over the years. The last litter were all named after nuts, Hazel, Filbert, Walnut, Peanut & 8 others!
I totally agree that Lilac is the most popular name for Oriental kittens. In my Oriental cattery we have to name our kittens, but people usually change these names.
We named our Siamese mix twin brothers Simon and Shuster after the publisher.
Our Blue Point Siamese is named Francis Albert. We just call him Frankie .
Have to say some of these “siamese” are oriental shorthairs. Siamese don’t have white on their faces. They have “points” of color on their legs, tail and face. In the US most associations don’t consider any color other than seal, chocolate, blue and lilac as siamese. The other colors such as red, cream and all colors in lynx point or tortie point are called Colorpoint SH. If they have color on all parts of their body or splotches of color with white are Oriental SH.
I have a Siamese cat she going on 19 years old her name is susu
Oh Amy, I’m happy that you are enjoying your Susu for so many years! My Susu , a seal point, was almost 17 when she passed. Susu was my little sweetheart! My Buddy was 3 months shy of his 20th birthday when I lost him over a year ago. He was a blue point and so regal! I am so excited…tomorrow morning my son and I are going to a breeder to choose a male, chocolate point!! I simply adore Siamese cats! I hope you have your Susu for a long , long time!! Merry Christmas!
My beauty was named Pywacket from the movie “Bell, Book and Candle.”
