Help Choosing The Right Name

Before selecting a gangster name for your cat, you want to keep a few things in mind. First, ensure the name you pick and use for the cat is no longer than three syllables. It simply won’t respond because the length will be a little confusing. 


Even though you should have one name for your cat for training and communication, surnames are acceptable. You can have a cute one for entertainment value. If the whole name exceeds three syllables, only use one part of it to be the main name.

Brand Of Gangster 

Next, determine what kind of gangster your cat is.  Is it a classic mobstewr from yesteryear, a high-end bankster, a swanky swindler, an old west outlaw or is it a more modern thug?  Only you can determine if your cat is a cool sneak or a straight up renegade.

Kitty Connection

And finally, make sure your cat responds to the name. So, it is advisable you select several names and say each one to your cat a few times while interacting with it. If you opt for a name with more than one word, say each to see which one the cat response to.

The cat will let you know if that’s the one it wants with purrs, licks, belly rolls and other reactive behavior. Of course, this doesn’t have to be a daunting and long, drawn-out process. But you do want to ensure your cat has the right name.

Cat Name Inspiration

If you’ve selected several names and your felonious feline doesn’t seem to take to any of them, there are several other things you can try. 

Gangster Movies

First, you could watch old and modern gangster movies about Italians, African Americans, the Irish, Russians and etc to get ideas. As you watch the films, write down any inspirations that come to you while keeping your criminal critter in mind.

Online Research

You could also do a little research into the histories of gangs from around the world, famous mob bosses in America or prolific drug lords. Study what these people did and what their character was like. Then, see if that meshes well with your cat's demeanor and mannerisms.

Other Considerations

In the event there’s a specific word or theme associated with your cat that defines its delinquency, do a search on a baby naming site for that meaning. You can also pull up a thesaurus for related words and phrases. Plus, there are several gangster name generators online that could help you find the best name for your cat. 


As you can see, the possibilities are almost endless when trying to find a gangster cat name. Whether your purr-fect pal is a bona fide mafia gangster or a pure punk of the most precious kind, there’s a name that will coincide with it. 

When you select a name with such a specific theme, be patient in finding and selecting the right one.

If your cat is a character that deserves such a unique moniker, only the best will suffice. Sometimes the name comes quick and fits right on the spot. But, with other cats, you have to wait to see what comes and sticks.
