Cute Cat Names
Submitted By Visitors

Funny Sphynx is SpartacusTo the best of my knowledge, the cat in the picture is not named Spartacus. I just thought it would be a cute name for such an interesting looking creature.

Looking for cute names for your fur-baby? Other visitors submitted these suggestions. A big thank you to all who have submitted!

See if you can find inspiration in these for yourself. After you've named your kitty, feel free to come back and submit your own.

Some of the names here were submitted with explanation/comments, others not, and some were submitted a-nony-mousely.

Unfortunately, none of these were submitted with pictures, and while some who submitted left commentary, it's just a few lines.

So, they don't really warrant a full page. But, it's still interesting to see what others have named their cats, so I've put them in this collection. These are listed in chronological order, from oldest to newest received.

Name: Stitch

By: A-nony-mouse

We rescued Stitch from a tree in the middle of nowhere as a kitten. We were trying to come up with names, but we didn't really like anything. Being that he was a kitten, he was getting into a bunch of things he wasn't suppost to and broke some things.

Then one of my family members called him a little monster, so being the Disney fan I am, that sparked the idea of Stitch. He still lives up to his name by staying in trouble, but afterwards gives you a bunch of loving.

Name: Caius

By: A-nony-mouse

Caius (pronounce Kay-us) was a character in a book we were reading. But as he was the third cat to be added to the house and a lot more energetic than our aging cats, we assumed he'd cause a little chaos. And he did. But now the name Caius fits perfectly!

Name: Coco

I used to have a cat named Coco, because she was very sweet, and smelled a bit like Coco Puffs. I then called her Coconut, Coco for short.
