Some advice: don't f*ck up picking out a name for your pet cat. That Big Pussy(cat) Energy = some seriously complicated, finicky, full-blown princess vibes. The stakes are high here, people! Have you ever been scratched by a pissed off furbaby? Then you know.
There are a few standard categories of cat names. First, you’ve got your human names: stately and professorial, these are ideal for a dignified tabby cat. Then you’ve got your food names, usually sweet-sounding novelties, usually not in English (snacks are universal, mmkay?). Next, there’s your nature-inspired and celestial-sounding names—thinks flowers or mythic characters—these are best for slinky, shadowy kitty cats who you swear just winked at you. There’s also the named-after-other-animals camp, in which it suddenly becomes acceptable to name a cat after a different species (i.e., “Puppy.” Excuse me, but no). The fifth and final category is simple: Simba. Related: Nala.
Anyway, we made this definitive list of the best cat names, ranking the internet’s 50 most popular, creative, and cutest, because we don't want your cat to hate you. You're welcome.
Whether you’re looking for a classic, majestic cat name, a playful moniker, or an indulgent, performative honorific, this list will give you all the inspo you need. And once you’ve picked out the purrfect cat name, it’s time to pick out a totally over-the-top, completely necessary (bedazzled) cat collar. You know what they say: you can’t love others until you love your cat.
Oh, and Mister Mistoffelees is not on this list, how dare you even ask. Okay, here goes:
Cleo (for the queens among us, Cleopatra also works)
