100+ Tiger Striped Cat Names: Ideas for Unique & Exotic Cats

We totally understand how exotic a beautiful tiger stripe looks on a kitten’s coat. If your cat has stripes, this could mean a few different things. They could have the tabby gene, which is a trait that can be found among any breed, or they could be a notoriously stripey breed such as Bangles, American Bobtails, or Maine Coons. When it comes to choosing an exotic cat name for your feline, we know that you might draw a little inspiration from their patterned fur.

Below we have put together a list of our favorite tiger-striped cat names for males and females, as well as a few based on their stripe colors.
