211 Unique & Unusual Cat Names For Your Precious Friend

211 Unique & Unusual Cat Names For Your Precious Friend

You’ve done your research, you’ve bought some kitty litter, you’ve prepared your home, and you’ve even found the perfect feline friend to welcome into your family.

Now comes the hard part:

Choosing the right name!

For many kitty lovers, finding that perfect name is a fun process that can showcase the personality of both pet and pet parent. For example: do you love mythology? Are you a huge Harry Potter fan? Are you secretly in love with George Clooney or Scarlett Johansson? You can easily find inspiration for unique cat names among your hobbies and interests.

Alternately, the perfect name for your four-legged furball may come to you after getting to know her a little bit. Is she brave and adventurous? Cute and funny? Shy and coy? Goofy and mischievous? No matter how you describe her, you can guarantee that there is someone (either famous or fictional) who fits her personality to a T.

Keep in mind that whatever you name your cat, it should be something memorable and easy to say. Super long or complicated names can often make it hard for other members of your family, your vet, or even your groomer to remember and use correctly. This may confuse your kitten, who will need some time learning her name.

You should also avoid using too many nicknames with your furry friend, again to avoid confusing her and ensure that she recognizes her new moniker.

So, need some help finding a unique and original first name for the newest member of your family? Check out some of our suggestions below!
