Perhaps, you’re drawn to Chinese names because you have a Siamese and want something traditional to the breed. Or maybe you have an affection for the culture. Whatever your reason for choosing a name of Chinese origin, we rounded up some of the most interestingly beautiful names we could find.
Whether you’re looking for a definite meaning or just want to hear possibilities, you are sure to find a name that fits your feline like a glove.
How to Name Your Cat
If you are already certain that you want your cat to have a name of Chinese origin, how else do you narrow your search?
Personality—The personality speaks volumes about matching a name if you choose to use this method. Sometimes, you meet a cat and instantly can match them to the way a name feels.
You might be the type of person who can only name a pet once you get to know them. If that is the case, start this list once you feel out what your little guy or gal is like.
Meaning—If you have a little spitfire or an exceptionally tiny cat, you may want their name to have an underlying meaning that matches their vibes or appearance.
Whether the meaning reminds you of your cat or is something special that you enjoy, you can secure a fabulous name with a strong story behind it.
Preference—Sometimes, when you see a name, you just like it. There’s really no rhyme or reason. It just stands out and seems to fit your cat perfectly.
It doesn’t really matter if it makes sense to anyone else. At the end of the day, you’re the one who is going to use the name all the time—best if it’s something you adore.
