Choosing the right name for your new cat can be a time-consuming endeavor. How do you know which of the overwhelming number of names out there is the one that will fit your cat best? It’s such a difficult decision!

We’re here to suggest that you consider a superhero name for your marvelous new pet! Considering how prevalent superheroes are in popular media, there’s no shortage of superhero and superhero-related names from which to pick. From Marvel to DC to the indie world, you’ll find a bounty of awesome superhero (and villain and sidekick and side character) names for your kitty.

How To Name Your Cat

When you’re searching for just the right name for your cat, it’s helpful to look at its personality and appearance, not only its gender. Looking at only male names for male cats or female names for female cats can limit your creativity. Plus, considering everything that makes your pet the amazing animal they are will offer up a larger universe of names from which to choose.

For example, if your cat has markings around its eyes that look like a mask, you could name them after a masked superhero. Or maybe they run around the house so fast you can hardly see them, making a superhero name like “Flash” a great match.

Taking in your kitty’s entire essence will ensure you find a name that’s just right!
