When pondering names for cats the very best method is to go for the unusual and, as cliche as it sounds–think outside the box. Sure, you should take into account the look and personality of your cat, but we can take it a bit further out than that, wouldn’t you agree?
If you’ve got a female cat who’s sleek and can hunt down a mouse faster than you can say-“gotcha,” then how about the name Artemis? Artemis is the name of the Greek Goddess of the hunt. Cool, right? Use your imagination and let it wander around.
Definitely, the color of your cat might guide you if it’s a tortoiseshell or a calico it might lead you in a specific direction or another.
Let’s say the cat is for the most part white–white as tell–a ghost. Well, there you go, think about famous ghosts in history and pick one. Now that is some creative thinking, but we’re just getting warmed up here.
Some people think outside the box by going for the obvious or the simple, and that can work for individual cats. Many times the simple can become unique and mysterious in its right. How about “grandpa names” for your male cat? Max, Chuck, Sam, Roy, Herbert, oh yeah, we like Herbert, now that is a pretty cool cat name. If you pick a name like that you’re cat better be on the grumpy old man side; working with your cat’s natural personality is essential.
Let’s see other suitable names, let’s think here. Think about the people in your household, if you have kids maybe there’s a girl in your family and she likes princesses? Well then, how about Princess Kate, or Princess Diana, or just plain Victoria? Those are regal names, and let’s face it, cats are regal, royal animals, they are unique and they know it, mysterious, elegant, and independent.
Perhaps something that’s a bit more mysterious would work? Eva, or Igor, dark and mysterious, no? If your cat is a Russian Blue then how about a Russian name? Sure, that’s a slam dunk and not uber-creative, but it’s pretty cool nonetheless. Perhaps, Boras? Yes, we like that one. Is it a Spanish looking cat? Hmmm, then we offer the name, Ricardo.
Of course, you can really push the envelope and name your cat after a Beatles Album or a Radiohead song, whatever, break the rules when thinking of names for cats and you’ll do your cat perfect justice. Sometimes not thinking about it too hard is best, let your subconscious mind go to work for you–yeah that’ll work nicely.
Proper preparation prevents poor performance! Never forget this and put as much effort into naming your new cat as you would with naming a new human, this is a very serious activity and make sure you treat it that way. Your cat will thank you for it. The above suggestions could help you to come up with a sweet and great name for you cat! Yes it can work
