Names for Black Cats

Searching for names for black cats? Black cats can certainly inspire your creativity. They’re both beautiful and mysterious.



I just love black cats. I guess the fascination started in my childhood.

One of our first family cats was solid black and we had so much fun naming him. In the end though, we chose a name that had nothing to do with the color black. We named him Trapito (which is Spanish for little rag). My brother also has a beautiful black cat.

If you too have a black cat, I’m sure many obvious black cat names come to mind: Blackie, Blackout, Blackbird, Night, etc. But if you want a name that is out of the ordinary, check the list below.
