So, you’ve just brought home your new Ragdoll cat. You have everything else—the grooming kit, the bowls and food, the bed, and the cat furniture—but what you don’t have is a name. Maybe you want something that represents the feline’s personality or appearance, or you want to get inspiration from fictional characters.
There are so many name choices out there, and you need to find the perfect one. So, we did all the hard work for you and gathered a selection of Ragdoll cat names that will be perfect for the brand-new member of your family!
How to Name Your Ragdoll Cat
When it comes to names, you probably want to think beyond the overused “Fluffy” and “Bella” or beyond male and female names. What’s your cat’s personality like, and should they have a fun human name or a cute pet name?
This is the name that your Ragdoll will have for the rest of their life, and the best place to start is with the cat’s personality traits. Ragdolls are affectionate and laidback, love attention from their family, and are known to be quiet cats. They’re more likely to squeak at you than meow.
There are three primary physical features that make up a Ragdoll. They’re big, for starters (ranging from 10 to 20 pounds), and quite fluffy. They also have beautiful, strikingly blue eyes. In terms of color, they are usually “pointed,” which means their ears, feet, legs, and tail are generally darker in color than their bodies. Use these traits to think of good names!
