So, you’ve met a cat who’s out of this world. Obviously, a “normal” cat name like Fluffy doesn’t adequately describe your fantastic feline friend. An extraterrestrial moniker from astronomy or popular culture seems like a more fitting choice, but where to begin? Here’s a list of 100 space names for cats to give you a good start in your search.
How to Name Your Cat
While you might have the perfect name picked out for your pet, sometimes their personalities influence the final choice. It’s definitely okay to browse lists of cat names while you’re waiting for adoption, but you should wait until you’ve spent a little time with your new friend before giving them their permanent name. Maybe your Leo acts a little more like a Draco, and that’s totally okay. You can name your cat after their physical characteristics, personality, history, your personal preferences, or a mix of all of them. Just make sure you like their new name since you’ll likely be repeating it daily for the next 15–20 years.
Female Space Cat Names With Meanings
It’s hard to find a name as beautiful as your female cat. These multicultural words are usually associated with the heavens. Hopefully they come at least a shooting star’s distance from your cat’s majestic aura.
Male Space Cat Names With Meanings
While many names for stars and constellations are gender-neutral, these names have a strong masculine connotation that’s perfectly suited for your stately dude.
Space Cat Names from Popular Culture
One of the most iconic cats in film actually came from a science fiction movie set in space. In the first Alien movie, Jonesy the orange tabby cat is one of only two survivors aboard the ill-fated USCSS Nostromo. While most of the names on our list came from humans or creatures in sci-fi other than cats, they also suit the terrestrial felines in our lives.
Names from the Stars and Constellations
Stars and their constellations influence this list of gender-neutral names that will fit any cat.
Fun Space Names for Cats
Maybe your kitty’s personality doesn’t quite fit a regal name like Cepheus. Here are some fun names for your spunky, independent fur child that is quite comfortable in their own universe.
Planet Names for Cats
You already know what they are (RIP Pluto), but the planets belonging to our Solar System can be an excellent source of potential names for your cat. Maybe you can make a new derivative of your favorite. Mercura? Mara? We’re all ears.
Just like a shooting star, your cat is special and deserves a unique name. Of all the humans and felines in the world, you two are paired for a reason. A celestial name can signify just how much your cat means to you and reflect their personality, just like how the moon reflects the sun.
