Cat Name Inspiration

Still struggling to settle on that perfect moniker? Don’t worry, that’s why we always include a brief section like this in our posts to help you find that category or thing that makes a truly inspired name pop into your mind.

The first place to start is here. Lists like this one can be a great way to unstick our minds so that we can think outside of those first shades of black that don’t really fit your cat.

If the names here haven’t sparked any ideas, check out some of our other name guides on our site and see what other people have chosen or suggested for their feline friend.

Another great place to find inspiration is social media. Most people in our society now have at least one form of social media and usernames can range from the most simplistic given name to the craziest alias. Even a brief scan down some of the most popular sites can give you ideas.

Don’t stop there, above we suggested finding a name in our media-driven world. There are literally millions of names, places, characters, scenes, and creatures in pop culture and TV shows that can help get your creative juices working.

On the other end of the spectrum, you may just want to sit outside and watch the stars. Dark colors for a dark kitty can be inspirational. Or maybe, take a walk and breathe in the fresh air, or even just look outside your window.

Inspiration is all around you, and your pet’s name doesn’t need to be the most creative, most unique name on the planet as long as you and your new companion are happy with it.
