Cat Name Inspiration

Inspiration for your cat's name can come from many sources.

Some base their cat's name on its personality Others base the name on the appearance or country of origin. 

Physical Appearance Inspiration

When choosing the name of your cat, you may consider its looks to decide upon the right one. Traits like coat color, coat pattern, and resemblances are good places to start. 

For example, if your cat has a coat with a mixture of black, white, and gray fur, you might call it by a name that contains those colors. Examples include Oreo, Cookie, Rain, Shadow, or Ashes. 

Or perhaps your cat has big, fluffy fur, as most Turkish cats do. In this case, it may be cute to call the cat something like Fluffy, Shaggy, or Lion (another type of cat with a big mane). 

You may even name your cat based on a unique physical trait like its eye color, dawning on names like Blue, Misty, or Goldie to match the eye. 

Personality Inspiration

On the other hand, a cat's personality is also a good indicator of what you should call it. Cats with energetic personality traits are well suited to names like Perky, Poppy, Spirit, Thumper, or Electra. 

Or maybe you have a shy and reserved Turkish cat. He or she may do well with a name like Baby, Buttercup, Mouse, or Pocket. 

Fast and darty cats could receive a name like Sprint, Sparky, or Dasher.

Cultural Or Traditional Inspiration

And of course, if you have one of the Turkish breeds of cat, then you may want to give it a classic Turkish name. (Refer to the ones mentioned in the list above.)

Turkish names have a cultural connection to the origin of the breed. The Turkish Angora and Turkish Van cat breeds initially came from Turkey.

If you have a Turkish Angora cat (also known as an Ankara cat), its ancestors go back to the Angora region of Turkey in the 17th century. These long-haired and typically white, fluffy cats inspire Turkish names like Solmaz, Sahika, and Adil. 

If you have a Turkish Van cat, its ancestors also go back to Turkey, in the Southeast region. Known for their hunting and sociable qualities, these Turkish cats may inspire names like Hunter or Artemis.   

Turkish Gods And Goddesses Inspiration

If you really want to give your Turkish cat a special name, you could inspire its name from a higher power.

Some names have inspiration in Turkish gods and goddesses. These include Kayra - the Supreme Spirit, Zada - God of Wind, and the God of the Sky named Tengri.

A cat with a regal or empowered personality may deserve a name like one of these. 

Help Choosing the Right Name

If you need help choosing the right name, all you have to do is consider what aspect of your cat is most important to you. Is it the personality, appearance, energy, or something else?

1. Consider Using Nicknames And Short Names

Picking a name that can easily become shortened into a nickname and easy to spell at the veterinarian may be convenient for you.

For example, if your cat's name is Mr. Whiskers, you could nickname it Whisky. 

Maybe you choose a name that is short in its own right, something that is easy to remember for anyone who meets your cat. You want to pick a name that will stick. 

2. Remember That The Name Will Last For Years

Other factors you should consider include the permanence of the name. Make sure the name you choose is one you are comfortable with for a long time.

Turkish Angora cats can live anywhere between 9 and 14 years. Alternatively, Turkish Van cats can live as long as 17 years, so you'll want to pick a name for the long run. 

3. Does It Feel Right?

It's essential to make sure the name feels right. There is no exact science to this, but most pet owners get a good feeling when they've finally landed on the right name for their cat.

When the name rolls off your tongue, does it make you think of your cat?

If not, you may need to go back to the drawing board and choose a more suitable one. 

Conclusion

When naming your Turkish cat - whether it's a Turkish Angora cat or a Turkish Van cat - you'll want to choose carefully and consider the aspects of your cat that matter most to you. 

There are many options when it comes to both male and female cat names. And the influences include mythological names, ancient gods and goddesses, your cat's personality traits, physical attributes, and more. 

Choose a name that matters to you and one that you can live with for a long time.
