150+ Grey Cat Names: Great Ideas for Your Dusty Cat

Adopting a new cat is always exciting. However, it also means that you need to make a lot of decisions. On top of picking out all of your cat’s new equipment, you’ll also need to consider what you’re going to call them.

Picking out a name seems like a pretty straightforward idea. However, in practice, it can be rather difficult. After all, you have to find a single name to use for the rest of your cat’s life. That’s a big deal!

Luckily for you, we’ve put together this massive list of grey cat names for you to choose from. We’ve included both male and female names on this list, so you should find something for just about everyone.

divider-catclaw1 How to Name Your Grey Cat

The best way to name your grey cat is to make a shortlist of names that you like. You can use the list below for some ideas, but aim to narrow it down as best you can.

After you’ve narrowed down the list to the names that you just can’t decide between, give each name a “trial”. Use the name for your cat for a day or two. Then, decide which name best fits their personality. Not only does this help you figure out which names fit your cat’s personality the best, but it also gives you some time to get to know your cat.

In the end, all you need to do is choose a name that you (and the rest of the cat’s owners) really like. Your cat probably won’t care what they’re called!
