The Best Boy Cat Names: Choosing Your New Pet's Ideal Name
Just like there's no wrong way to eat a Reese's, there's no wrong way to choose a male cat name for your new pet. There are hundreds of good cat names out there. You can choose from boy names inspired by celebrities, historical figures, and the feisty personalities of cats the world over. You can also find some very clever and unique male names, drawn from literature and pop culture as well as interesting languages and cultural traditions. No matter what your style, you're sure to find a male cat name that's a good fit for the new addition in your family.
Here is a guide to help you decide your cat-naming style, and to offer a few suggestions in each "cat"-egory (pardon the pun). Happy naming!
1. Historical and celebrity kitten names. Many people name their cats after famous people, past and present. If a kitten is pushy and likes to be the 'top dog' amongst its litter, it could playfully be named Napoleon. If it's peaceful and gentle (and a bit chubby), it could be named Buddha. If it has a great coat of dark fur, call it Elvis. Or just pick a name you like and go with it; it doesn't have to be directly and literally connected.
2. Cute, cat-related names. You may wonder, "What on earth is a cat-related male cat name?" But some of the best ones out there are simple and inspired by the cat's characteristics itself: instead of relating those attributes to a famous person, why not use them for the cat's name directly? Examples include Tiger, Lion, Whiskers, Patches, Cuddles, Fluffy or Fluffo, Stinky, Slinky, Scooter, Skippy, etc.? The list goes on and on.
3. Unique cat names. This is probably the most challenging and diverse category of boy cat names, and also one of the most enjoyable to explore. Unique cat names range from more obscure historical and literary figures to unique foreign words and unexpected everyday objects. (This latter example, of "unexpected everyday objects" is increasingly common if you let a child name the cat. With children given free reign, you may soon have a pet named Toaster. Get ready!) It can also be fun to search for a new moniker online based on the name's meaning first rather than its sound.
There are plenty of databases (not unlike baby name databases) that will provide the cultural origin of the name as well as its literal translation and cultural meaning. This is a fun way to find an unexpected name for your cat that is not only uniquely memorable, but meaningful as well.
Of course, there's nothing wrong with just picking a male cat name that you like. Max, Sam, Bo, Bing, or Eddy are all fair game and perfectly great names for your new boy cat. The important thing is to just pick a name you like, and that you think will fit your cat. After all, you could name your cat Stinky just the same as you could name it Henry VIII; the cat doesn't know the difference, and either choice is fun.
