Male Cat Names & Kitten Names

Deciding on the right male cat name or boy kitten name isn’t always easy. Our decision on the male cat name of choice is often influenced by personal preferences. Choosing a boy cat name requires a bit less practical thought than choosing a name for a dog or a puppy, as you will seldom be found yelling out your cat's name at the public park.

However, it can still be quited a heated topic of conversation! Here are a few practical tips to help you when choosing a male cat name or boy kitten name:

  • To make it easier to call your cat's name, choose a boy cat name that is short with one or two syllables. If you prefer a long male cat name, think about what the short version will be.
  • You want to make sure you can easily pronounce the male cat name. It should just roll off your tongue.
  • Learn about your cat's personality before you choose a male cat name. The characteristics of cats can vary a lot, not only from breed to breed but also from animal to animal.
  • Your cat's breed heritage could also give you some inspiration when choosing a boy kitten name.
  • Do you like certain movie characters, actor or famous personalities. Why not choosing a name based on your favourite celebrity for your boy cat?
  • Pick a name that will grow with your boy cat as he ages. For example 'Kitten' may be less appropriate as a fully grown male cat's name.
