Part of the responsibility of being a dedicated cat owner is finding a name for your new family member. We can all agree there’s nothing better than finally settling on the name that best suits our beloved feline.
We put together these lists to help you find a few options that won’t bore you or your cat. Check out our cool female cat names, cool male cat names, cool unisex cat names, and a few foreign cat names, just to spice things up.
How to Name Your Cat
It can be easy to choose the first names that come to mind. Popular names are familiar and simple, but they also have a higher chance of being overused.
Naming your cat, whether they’re from a breeder or a shelter, doesn’t have to be difficult, though. The biggest advice that we can give you is to take your time. There’s a name that will fit your cat perfectly; you just need to give yourself time to learn who they are.
Cats may all have similar habits, but they also have their own rambunctious personalities. They can be mischief-makers, like the Norse god Loki, or quiet sweethearts that suit a gentler name, like Mittens.
Even if it takes a few days for your kitten to properly settle in and show their truest selves, you can be comfortable in the knowledge that whatever name you give them will be purr-fect.
Cool Female Cat Names
Names for your female cat don’t all have to revolve around sugar, spice, and all things nice. If you want something more than run-of-the-mill names for your feline, you can gain inspiration in places like the TV shows that you love. Or maybe you do want something gentle — it’s up to you!
Cool Male Cat Names
Your newest family member deserves a name that shows courage and refinery, something befitting a cousin to the mighty lion. For more names to add to your list, including the infamous Aslan, here are ideas for your male kitty.
Cool Unisex Cat Names
Sometimes neither male nor female names make the grade, especially when our favorite felines are so much more than their sex. For cats that break the mold and love every second of it, here are a bunch of unisex names that will suit the coolest of felines.
Cool Foreign Cat Names
To really set your cat apart from the crowd, consider a name from another language. While the translation can be as simple as the color of your cat’s fur, the name itself will be new to you and probably not as popular where you live.
Your new best friend deserves the world. A snazzy name to properly welcome them to your home is a great way to show your adoration for your cat and to wow the neighbors with your inspired naming skills.
Hopefully, this list helped you come up with cool cat names for your newest family member. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even get your neighbors asking you for advice too!
