Cats have been a beloved part of the Disney experience from the very beginning. Before Mickey Mouse ever hit the big screen, Walt Disney created a cat named Julius in 1924. In the almost hundred years since, Disney has given us thousands of fantastical animated characters through the years. For cat lovers, perhaps the most beloved are the more than a hundred feline characters they’ve shared with loyal fans. From The Jungle Book’s Shere Khan to Pinocchio’s Figaro there are a multitude of kittens and cats in the Disney universe to inspire a fantastical name for your furry friend. Whatever your new cat’s paw-sonality—regal, mischievous, cuddly, or sinister—there is a Disney name to perfectly sum up its kitty essence.

But don’t feel you have to strictly limit yourself to cat names as there are countless memorable possibilities among Disney’s heroes, sidekicks, and villains. There are plenty of wonderful naming options that will both complement your little bundle of fur and honor your love of everything Disney. So, we’ve gathered over 175 names inspired by the Disney legacy to help you choose the perfect name for your cat or kitten.
