Deciding what to name your new cat is exciting. This is a chance to give them a name that is special and meaningful to you, but that also suits them. For outer space fans, we gathered our favorite astronomical names for male and female cats. You are bound to find the perfect one waiting for you and your new friend!

divider-catHow to Choose the Perfect Space Name

If you have an interest in outer space, giving your cat a space-related name is a fun way to indulge in your hobby. Many cats respond well to names with just one or two syllables, so it’s best to keep the name simple and distinct, while also being one that you enjoy saying.

You’re going to be saying this name for many years, as will members of your family, your friends, and your cat’s veterinarian. Consider that before deciding, because if you don’t truly love the name, you may want to change it. If you do this too often, you will confuse your cat.

Think about your favorite space movies, TV shows, books, planets, etc. Your interests can be your guide and the galaxy is the limit!
