cute cat names

Cute cat names come in so many forms! New baby kittens are lively, affectionate, loving and often unexpected. Today we’ll share the best cute cat names around. From trending topics to tv shows, movies and celebrities, to unique themed ideas and off-the-wall inspiration.


Choosing between cute cat names can be a highlight to pass the time while you wait for a new cat or kitten to come home. Whether you’re stuck for inspiration, or just want to see what ideas are out there, we’ve got plenty of names for you to choose from.

Choosing Cute Cat Names

As you begin brainstorming adorable cat names, here are a few naming tips that might help you narrow down your search:

  • For ease of training, pick a name that is three syllables or shorter, or a name you can shorten to just one or two syllables.
  • Steer clear of any names that sound too phonetically similar to training commands you want to teach your new cat.
  • If you can’t decide between two or more names, try each one out on your new cat and see which one seems to get the best response!
  • It is also perfectly fine to give your new feline family member a first name and a middle name if you are having trouble picking just one name.
  • Study your cat’s appearance, eye and fur color and pattern, unique personality traits, food preferences, and other attributes as another rich source of naming inspiration.

Fun Facts About Cute Cats

All kittens are cute. But did you know that just like people, they’re all born with blue eyes? Their blue peepers will be sealed tightly shut until they’re seven to ten days old. And after that, they’ll only stay blue until about six weeks old. From then, their adult eye color will start to develop.

One of the smallest breeds of cat is the diminutive Singapura. These friendly cats rarely tip the scales at more than eight pounds. They’re sometimes also known as “love cats” in their native Singapore.
