How to Name Your Cat

Naming a new pet is an exciting prospect but can also be daunting. There is a lot of pressure to find the perfect name for your new furry friend, and you want to find something unique that captures the essence of your special cat. After all, your cat will carry this name for the rest of their life, so you’ll want to pick an excellent one.

You can guarantee that your cat’s name is special by naming your new pet based on their personality. While the stereotype is that all cats are cold and aloof, that is far from the truth. Cats have their own personalities and quirks, and the sooner you get to know your pet, the sooner you can give them a name that suits their character.

Another thing to consider is your cat’s appearance. What color is your cat? How long is their fur? What is their breed? All of these factors and more can help you narrow down your options to a name that suits how they look. For instance, you probably don’t want to name a pitch-black cat Snowball unless you really appreciate ironic humor.

Additionally, you’ll want to consider the sex of your cat. If you are looking for something masculine or feminine for your pet, you will want to narrow down your options based on gender. At the same time, if the sex of your cat doesn’t impact how you will be naming your cat, then there are plenty of unisex names you could pick from.

As you are looking for a name for your kitten, think about what feelings you want the name to evoke. Do you want your cat’s name to sound adorable? Beautiful? Tough? Funny? Whatever feeling you want to evoke will heavily inform your decision.

For season-inspired names, we have divided the categories into terms based on nature and food. Likewise, we have created lists for fall-inspired male and female cat names. To brainstorm a seasonal name for your new kitten, keep reading below.
