Choosing the right name can be hard but we’re doing our best to make it easy for you. Here are over 300 scrumptious, food-inspired name options for your cat. Grab yourself a snack and take a look!
How to Name Your Cat
No matter what name theme you’re choosing from, the option you decide on needs to not only appeal to you but fit your cat as well. Consider your cat’s color, pattern, or coat texture to help narrow your decision. Is your cat’s personality sweet as pie or just a bit salty? Are they the size of a snack or a three-course entree? So much to consider but let’s get to the names!
Breakfast Food Names for Your Cat
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and naming your cat is one of the most important decisions you’ll make for them. Knowing that, why not pick one of these breakfast foods as your cat’s name inspiration?
Plant-Based Food Names for Your Cat
Whether the motivation is to save the planet or save our own health, plant-based eating is all the rage these days. Luckily, the world of fruits, vegetables, and herbs not only offers nutritional value but dozens of name options for your cat as well!
Meaty Cat Names
These names will appeal to the steak-loving human or perfectly describe the big, beefy cat! After all, cats are carnivores, so why not pick the perfect kitty title from our list of meaty food names?
Fishy Cat Names
If your cat prefers their protein from the surf rather than the turf, check out our list of fish and seafood-inspired names. They range from some fish you’ll recognize as cat food ingredients to popular date night dinner entrees.
Cheesy Cat Names
In this case, we mean names literally inspired by cheese, not ones that make you roll your eyes. Many cats love to snack on cheese, even if it doesn’t always agree with them!

Food Names From Around the World
No matter where you call home in the world, chances are there’s some dish or food item now enjoyed worldwide that was inspired by your country. Whether it’s the many popular Italian dinner entrees or lesser-known but still delicious international cuisines, the wide world of food offers much inspiration for naming your cat!
Sweet Treat Names for Your Cat
Cats may not be able to taste sweets but their humans certainly can! From frozen delights to delicious baked goods to the ingredients that give them their flavor, this list offers plenty of options for your sweet-natured kitty!
Candy Names for Your Cat
Sometimes your sweet tooth can’t wait for something to bake. In those circumstances, candy can be your best friend, just like your cat! Name your cat after your favorite sugary treat but don’t try to share, especially if it contains chocolate.
Snack Food Names for Your Cat
If your cat is small in size, why not name them after the quick morsels we eat to tide us over between meals? Snacks can be sweet or salty, healthy or junky but always addicting. Sound like your cat? Check out this list!

Once you decide on your cat’s name, help them learn it by using it as much as possible, especially when you’re feeding or playing with them. Science tells us that cats probably can learn to recognize their own name but whether they choose to respond to it is another question entirely! At least you can enjoy your friends’ reaction to your cat’s delicious food name no matter whether kitty ever comes when called or not.
