We have heard frustration from many people about selecting the name for a cat. Naming a cat, even temporarily has been a challenge for us and our fosters. We have unearthed a number of articles about cat names that could help. You probably will find some repetition and omission. However, this might be a good starting point and even inspire some new names.
Let’s begin with an article from Meg Austwick from The Happy Cat on Unique Cat Names.
It’s not always easy to dare to be different. And when it comes to finding unique cat names the pressure is on seriously. Will your off the wall idea be celebrated, or leave people raising their eyebrows in confusion? I’ve named a lot of pets over the years and have found the best way to come up with something no one else has thought of is to work along a theme. It might be the names of your favorite castles, unusual plants, or even someone you met once on a train that had a friendly face. If you go with something that has meaning as well as the cool factor, you’re always going to be on to a winner. And today I’ll help you along the journey by providing inspiration, ideas and stepping stones for you to hop across on your travels to the perfect original cat name.
Bold and Brave or Meek and Mild?
A cat’s personality is a great place to start – every cat is different and their personalities start showing from such a young age! Using their personality as inspiration is a great way to think of a name that is unique to your cat and that suits it perfectly. Here are some examples:
Not sure any of these are quite right? Our readers suggest ‘Bruiser’, ‘Sneak’, ‘Hero’ and ‘Lucifer’ may all work well for some cats too!
Cute Creative Girls Names
Human names are a really popular choice when it comes to naming our pets, but this does not mean that these names cannot be unique. Choosing a human name can be difficult, as you might want to avoid the names of your family and friends. However, they tend to fluctuate in popularity, so a name that is less popular now could be the perfect fit for your cat. Here are some examples of less popular names now that could make a great unique name for your kitty.
Adorable But Not Trending Boys Names
Here are some less popular male human names that you might think are the perfect choice for your cat! They might not be current celebrity faves, but you could be your very own trend setter.
Inspired By Coat Color
A great way to set off on ideas for unusual names is to take a close look at your pet. Is there a tint to the fur or a notch in the ear? Appearance can be awesome inspiration.
When naming your black cat, it’s tempting to go for typical names that describe your cat’s fur color. These names are great, however, they’re often too popular to be unique.
To find a more unique name, we could look at the meaning behind the name. This is a clever way of complementing your cat’s gorgeous dark fur but still choosing a name many other cats won’t have! Here are some names with meanings that flatter our black cats’ coats.
- Achlys (darkness)
- Amaro (dark)
- Bruna (dark haired)
- Cerin (little dark one)
- Kalan (black)
- Krishna (black)
- Zila (shade)
- Collyer (charcoal merchant)
- Ohanzee (shadow)
- Sauda (dark beauty)
We can also use the above technique when looking for names for white cats!

Lots of people use human inspiration when naming their cat, but another way to find a cool, unique name is to look at inspiration in the media. Some famous cat names, like Garfield or Bagpuss, have been used time and time again as pet names, however this doesn’t mean that there are no unique ones.

Historical names can also have a great story behind them that you can share with your friends when they meet your kitty!

To be truly awesome you need to go that giant step further when making your choice. It has to be a name that is creative, and often unique. One that turns heads when you call it, hopefully for the right reasons! Whatever your idea of the most awesome cat names is, I guarantee there will be ideas to suit you here. We’ve got some great names for kittens or older rescue cats. Let’s start off with some awesome kitty names by gender.

Awesome Male Cat Names
Looking for the best awesome boy cat names? Then look no further. Naming your super cool kitty will be helped along its way with these great names for male cats.
Crazy Cat Names
Ever cat is an individual, but finding different kitten names can be tough. Crazy names for cats can be a nod in the direction of their wild ancestors, or scrappy temperament. But that doesn’t have to be the reason. Because above all else, crazy kitten names are fun!
They can be descriptive, but they can also be funny or kind of inappropriate and totally un-cat-like! So whether you’ve got a ferocious feline who’d suit some tiger kitty names, or a docile lap cat who has never raised a claw in her life. It actually doesn’t matter! Her name is your choice, and we think crazy cat names make awesome kitty names for any of our furry pals.

Lucy at HappyCats gives us a list of names for Black & White cats
My black and white Tuxedo cat is called Oscar. You’ll find several photos of him here – I can’t resist showing him off! Although it was over 11 years ago now that I named him, it’s a decision that rather stuck with me. The choices, and implications of getting them wrong, were just so overwhelming. Names for black and white cats can come from loads of different places. They don’t need to just be inspired by their gorgeous colors. From classic tuxedo cat names to unique ideas, today I’ll share the coolest choices for your new kitty.
Be a little careful when naming your cat for a feature. If i’d have named Oscar after the white tip of his tail I’d have been disappointed, because it had all but vanished by the time he reached adulthood.

Musical Cat Names
Another Cat Chef author, Kelley Morgan, has come up with better than 370 musical names, in case you still are running out of ideas.
If you’re like me then you’re so excited to see this list of music cat names. It’s purrfect for everyone out there who thinks songs are their best friends. And your fluffy buddy definitely deserves to be named after them!
Songs are truly always there for us. If you’re happy, they are there to make you even happier. If you’re sad, a good song will make you feel like you’re not alone and there’s still hope. It’s genuinely amazing that music has helped so many people out there, and it will continue to do so.
If you’re one of those people, and music really makes your world go around, then it’s a great idea to take inspiration from it and name your new cat something cool and meaningful. I promise I won’t Let You Down (NF)! So, let’s take a look at these cool music-themed name ideas I have for you.

Cat names based on your favorite singers (A-I)
Everyone has a favorite singer. Maybe it’s someone you like because of their beautiful voice, or someone who always writes the best songs. Somehow, it always feels like our favorite artists know what we’re going through at the moment, and then they release a new album that describes our current life.
Now that you’ve just got a new cat, it’s such a cool idea to name them after someone who was indirectly always there for you.
Or maybe you don’t feel that connected with any particular singer, but you still think that some of them have pretty cool names. Either way, you’re in for a treat and I’m sure you’ll have The Time Of Your Life (Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes).
