How to Name Your Cat

Naming a strong cat can be a chore. For fans of the Warrior Cats book series, trying to choose a name that is both true to the text and suitable for your own cat can take quite a bit of time. Here are a few things to keep in mind when going through this process so you can choose the perfect name.

Know Your Cat

Before you toss a name on your cat, it’s important to know your cat. When bringing a new kitten or cat into your home, it takes time for them to acclimate to their environment and feel at ease in their new home. Choosing a name before this process has time to take place can be a mistake. You may want to give your kitty a strong, warrior name only to find out they are more suitable for a kittypet or rogue cat name.

Often, people who are fans of book series share the love with their friends and family. If this is the case in your situation, naming your cat may be difficult. Having a cat that’s named the same as your best friend’s kitty may not be as fun. If the name you wanted is taken, give yourself a little time. A new name will come to you that you’ll love even more. This list of more than 350 choices is the perfect place for some inspiration.
