248 Orange Cat Names For All Ginger Felines

As it turns out, quite a lot!

Naming your new kitty companion can feel like a big responsibility. After all, you need to choose something that you’ll be comfortable saying in public (in particular, you should be able to say your kitty’s name to your vet with a straight face!). Your cat’s name also needs to sound unique enough so that she’ll learn to respond to it appropriately. In other words, it shouldn’t sound too much like another pet’s name or like a certain command.

And perhaps most importantly, you want a name that will suit your animal companion’s breed and individual personality, as well as your own creativity and interests. Ideally, the name you decide on will makes others go: “That’s perfect!”

So, where to begin?

Fortunately, if you’ve recently adopted an orange tabby into your home, then there’s ample inspiration that will help you find the perfect moniker for your little furry friend. From famous people (real or fictional) to things found in nature, red, orange, and copper-toned ideas are as plentiful as your kitty is colorful!

Are you feeling paralyzed by choice? Not to worry.
