Names for Kittens

Names for kittens are many. So how do you find the right one for your kitten? To tell you the truth, I’ve never had any particular method for finding cat names. In fact, my sister named our two cats, not me.

However, I’ve helped some of my friends find names for their kittens. I usually look at a few things when looking for a kitten name:

  1. The cat’s appearance

  2. The cat’s personality

  3. Name uniqueness

Of course, this is just one of many strategies you may follow. If you don’t know where to begin, check this page about cat names and where you can find inspiration.

So, going back to our topic, kitten names, you will find below several cat names you may like to consider. I hope that even if you don’t use them, they will spark some new ideas.
