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

You rarely find a cat that is a solid shade of brown, whether it’s slightly tanned or dark as chocolate, they are few and far between. That is because the coat color is a genetic mutation derived from black cats! However, brown is commonly seen in patches or stripes and is found among almost every feline breed. 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 their fur color may inspire you. Although they may not be head-to-toe brown, there are still some tremendous brunette-inspired names for every shade of cat! We have a little something for everyone: female and male names, brown tabby names, and those with fur spotted with white and black.
