30+ Aristocats Cat Names from the Disney Classic

Aristocats Cat Names

Disney’s animated film The Aristocats is a classic loved by many, featuring an array of charming and memorable feline characters. If you’re a fan of the film or just looking for unique and whimsical names for your pet, why not consider these Aristocats-inspired options?


How to Name Your Cat

The first step to naming your cat is to narrow down a theme. You’ve already chosen The Aristocats, which is perfect considering the main characters in the movie are cats. So, with our list of names, you can choose a name for your cat based on their appearance and personality. Maybe you have more than one cat that you need to name, and we have name suggestions for multiple cats as well.

Maybe, though, the name doesn’t have to be from The Aristocats and you just want a French-inspired name because you like the sophistication and elegance that is often associated with France. In that case, we have name suggestions in that area as well.

If you’ve narrowed down a few names and you still can’t decide, write them all down and draw one out of a name. You can also ask your family for help or create a poll on social media to have your friends and family vote on their favorite.
