The Top 90 Best Cat Names

Picking a name for your furry friend isn’t rocket science, but it can definitely feel that way. 

Let me guess:

You’re trying to find the perfect name that reflects your cat's personality and overall just ‘suits them’?

But it also has to have a ‘ring’ to it, after all, you’re going to be saying (or screaming it) A LOT! 

It’s a dilemma we all face, and luckily for you, we’ve compiled a list of the best cat games for you to choose at will or simply provide a spark of inspiration! 

So sit back, relax, and get ready to purr at your new favorite cat name. 

Before we dive in, it’s important to take a look at the different types of cat names. 

You’ve got your ‘human’ names such as Lucy, Zoe, etc which reflect a more serious/professional vibe.

Then you have ‘location’ names like Florence and Brooklyn, which are a tad more playful but perhaps not everyone's idea of a good cat name. 

Don’t forget the ‘food’ names like Peaches and Cupcake which may also divide opinion.

Last but not least, you’ve got your ‘traditional’ cat names like Spot, Coco, and Leo (you know the ones I’m talking about)

It’s important that you decide which category you want to dive into, we’ve separated them into a bunch of different groups so you can have your pick of the litter (no pun intended)!

But this is easier said than done. So what should you take into consideration?


Here are a few things to think about:

  • Take notes from your cat's appearance, do they have any distinct features or patterns? This might give you a sudden burst of inspirations to name your furry friend!
  • Don’t rush, whilst it’s important to name them quickly you should take your time to get used to their personality, this may give you a better idea of a name.
  • Short and sweet is best. This one quite obvious, you don’t want to have to shout a full essay each time you’re calling your kitty in for dinner. 
  • Take the breed into consideration, some breeds have typical names that you can use.
  • Try out a cat name generator, these don’t always work but it might just give you the perfect name!
