Cat Coffee

You have a new cat, and you want a unique name that reflects your cat’s fun-loving personality. You could go with names inspired by classic characters, historical figures, or something off-beat like demons, witches, or superheroes.

The options are truly limitless. But if you want a name that truly stands out, name your kitten after your next-best love: coffee. If you’re like most people, the day doesn’t begin until you’ve had your coffee, and what better way to show your love than by naming your cat something inspired by your favorite brew?

Names inspired by something off-beat, like coffee, are memorable and quirky, not to mention that coffee’s colors can reflect your cat’s beautiful coat color. So, let’s dive into the top 88 coffee names for cats and our top picks for your caffeine-fueled cat!

(But seriously, just stick to the name. Do not make your cat a latte for breakfast. Caffeine is toxic to your kitty!)
