Cat name inspiration can be difficult to find. You want something that is unique, but also representative of your exotic cat.

Here are a few tips to help you find the perfect name for your feline friend:

  • Do some research. There are many different cultures that have traditional cat names. Looking into these can give you some unique ideas for names.
  • Consider their appearance as well. Many people choose names based on the color or markings of their cat's fur.
