Few things you should keep in mind before choosing a name for cat
Your Cat’s Appearance –
This includes the color and type of fur, markings on their body, etc. So, if your kitten is a furry baby with a white coat, you can call her Miss Cotton Ball. If your cat has black fur, you can consider classic pet cat names like Ink, Midnight, Shadow, Blackcurrant, etc.
And if you are in the mood for irony, you can go for names like Snowball, Moonlight, Ivory, and the like. Or, you can even name your cat based on any unique markings that he or she has.
For example, if he or she is a white cat with black markings on all her paws, then you can name her Socks or Boots.
Their Personality and Expression –
Cats are renowned for their personality.
Some are mischief-makers and like to cause trouble on any chance they get. For these kitties, names like Havoc, Chaos, Imp (small goblins with a mischievous nature) will be perfect. Or, if you have a cat with a stern expression and no-nonsense personality, consider naming her Mrs McGonagall from Harry Potter to see some magic!
So, watch your kitty for a few days after you bring her home. Let them get comfortable with their surroundings to get a fair idea of their real personality. And then you can choose a cat name for them accordingly.
Breed of Your Cat –
You can also decide on the cute pet name of your cat based on their breed. For instance, if you have a Persian - known for their regal and elegant personality, you can choose from names like Charles, Elizabeth, Victoria, Caesar, Cleopatra, Baron, etc.
Apart from these, allow yourself to get inspired by your favourite book, comic character, animated series, or movie while selecting a name for your beloved feline friend. For example, if your furry munchkin is a black cat with green eyes who has a tendency for stirring up trouble, you can call him or her Loki, after the Norse God of Mischief and everyone’s favourite Marvel villain.
Or, you can take a trip down memory lane and pick a name from everyone’s childhood favourite animated series Tom and Jerry, Garfield etc.
You can even gather ideas from Bollywood/ Hollywood celebrities who have chosen some pretty unique names for their furry babies. Like celebrity singer Katy Perry named her feline friend ‘Kitty Purry’ which is a clever twist on her own name.
Taylor Swift, who is well-known for her fondness for cats named one of them after the female detective Olivia Benson from the ‘Law and Order’ TV series.
Closer home, actress Kalki Koechlin had lovingly named the feline friend she had adopted “Dosa”. These are a few unusual cat names to go by!
Lastly, trust your instincts while selecting a name for your purr baby. Just remember that whatever name you choose, he or she will love you just the same!
