100+ Brown Cat Names: Ideas for Bronzed & Nutty Cats

You rarely find a cat that is a solid shade of brown, whether it be slightly tanned or dark as chocolate, they are just few and far between. This is because the coat color is actually a genetic mutation derived from black cats! However, brown is very commonly seen in patches or stripes and is found among almost every feline breed. Additionally, nearly every tabby has at least one shade of brown fur mixed in with their coat.

When it comes time to name your new kitten, we know that you may be inspired by their fur color. Although they may not be head to toe brown, we know there are still some great brunette inspired names for every shade of cat! We have a little something for everyone, female and male, and those kitties who are also tabby, and those with fur spotted with whites and blacks.
