Cute Male Cat Names

‘Cute’ and ‘Male’ aren’t often put together, mostly because the most masculine of our species prefer compliments that are more in line with ‘Tough’, ‘Strong’, or ‘Ruggedly Handsome’, but if there is one pet out there that can truly represent the cuteness of males, it is the cat. For your adorable little pal, only a name that makes you say, ‘Aw’, as often as his loveable quirks do can possibly hope to capture the cuteness factor of your new kitten.

Cat Name Inspiration

After a walk through our lists of popular, unique, and cute names for your little boy cat, have you settled on the perfect name, or are you still struggling to come up with something that suits his cat personality the best? If you are still having a hard time, then maybe a different type of inspiration could help you out.

While name lists are an amazing place to start, they aren’t everything when choosing a name. Start with something simple and broad, like pop culture. From popular bands to the movies that are occupying every theater, there are countless names, places, creatures, or even titles that you can draw your inspiration from. Some of the most popular names for cats come from this vein of thought, including Salem, Binks, and Sabrina.

If pop culture doesn’t get your brain working, then you may be looking in the wrong place. Take a walk, breathe in the fresh air, stare up at the night sky, or watch the clouds flitting across the stars. Inspiration can come from anywhere and can strike at any moment. If you are stuck, try taking a break from brainstorming and come back to it when you are feeling fresh. You may even stumble on a name watching your favorite tv show or film, for example, "Top Cat" or "Crookshanks" from Harry Potter.

No matter what name you decide on, remember that it isn’t about what other people may think. This name is all about you showing your love and compassion to your new companion…and as long as he likes his name, then nothing else really matters.
