Cat Names & Kitten Names

Deciding on names for cats and names for kittens often isn’t easy. Personal preferences usually play a role when choosing cat names or kitten names. Choosing a cat name or kitten name needs a bit less practical thought than choosing a name for a dog or a puppy though, as you are hardly likely to be found yelling your cat’s name in a public park!

However, the cat naming task can still be challenging, so here are a few practical tips that can help you when choosing a cat name or kitten name:

  • To make it easier to call your cat’s name, choose a cat name or kitten name that is short with 1 or 2 syllables. And if it’s a long cat name or kitten name, think about what the short version will be.
  • You want to make sure you can easily pronounce the cat name or kitten name. It should just roll off your tongue.
  • Learn about your cat’s personality and find a suitable name. The characteristics of cats can vary a lot from breed to breed but also from animal to animal.
  • Your cat’s breed can also give you some inspiration for a cat name or kitten name.
  • Pick a name that will grow with your cat. For example, “Kitten” may be less appropriate for a full grown cat.
  • Do you like certain movie characters, actor or famous personalities. Why not choose a celebrity cat name or kitten name for your pet? Our cat name generator can help with this.
