Personality traits are a fantastic starting point for naming your new cat. The cats’ most common personality trait seems to be mischief, which might seem like it narrows the names down significantly.

So, You Want to Name Your Mischievous Cat
When it comes to naming your mischievous cat, your first goal should be to find the perfect starting point. Are you interested in naming your cat after a character from a book or TV show? Maybe you’re more interested in a name that spells out just how mischievous your cat is. Some people even prefer silly names that don’t necessarily refer to anything in particular but seem suitable for their cat.

How to Get a Cat Used to Their Name
The best way to get a cat used to their name is to use it often with love. Say their name while giving them pats, feeding them, or playing with them. Your cat will start to associate their name with positive interactions and eventually can start responding to it when you call them.
With that said, avoid using their name in anger. While it might be hard not to use their name sternly if they are being too mischievous, your cat might not respond positively when you call to them.
The sky’s the limit when naming your mischievous cat or kitten. Simply pick your favorite starting point, whether it’s pop culture or descriptive, and work your way out from there. You may need to try out names for a couple of days to get a feel for how well they work for your cat. Sometimes, you may find a name that feels perfect, but once you start using it, it just doesn’t suit your kitty.
