Bringing home your new Ragdoll cat is an exciting time. You’ve got everything ready, from the food, bowls, and litter box to the toys and cat furniture. Now, all you need to do is figure out a name.
With such a larger-than-life persona and size, Ragdolls deserve a name totally unique to them. Here are our 188 top picks for Ragdoll cat names.
How to Name Your Cat
Names matter. We want something unique and creative, something that reflects ours or the cat’s personality, or something that resonates with us. Cats learn their names, so it’s not something you want to change—if you can help it.
You may want to choose names that are simple and easy to say (or shout!) to get your cat’s attention. Of course, you can choose longer names and shorten them to something more manageable.
For example, if you’re a Game of Thrones fan and like the name Nymeria, you can shorten it to Nym. Still cute, but much easier to say than the full name. It’s also easier for your vet, your kids, etc.
Remember, you don’t need to rush! You’ll be using this name for the next 15 years or more. Go with nicknames until you come up with something you like.
In the meantime, we have plenty of names to inspire you!
