Harry potter cat names

If you’re reading this, it means you’re also a Harry Potter fan, just like me. 

Well, we may not own a snowy owl named Hedwig or ride Hogwart's Express, but we surely have our cute little feline friends. 

Do you know that your favourite Harry Potter character can live with you in the form of your cat? 

You guessed it right!  Take your pick of Harry Potter names for cats to have that extra bit of Pottermania in your life.

We are talking about naming your little feline after your favourite character from the Harry Potter series.

The Harry Potter movies made everyone’s childhood a roller coaster of emotions. It did not even matter which side we were on; we fell in love with good characters as well as characters like Voldemort. 

You can easily live the memories of the Harry Potter movies by naming your cat after any character of the movie. 

For me, my little Voldemort (punch face Persian cat) is always by my side purring and asking for the love that she deserves! 

Why Harry Potter Cat Names?

The Harry Potter series allowed children to enhance their imagination and enjoy magical moments of the wizarding world. 

Harry Potter introduced a list of characters to its fans, and we can say that every character is as important as the lead. 

Therefore, naming your little buddy after a character that means something to you can create an even more special bond between you and your little feline friend. 

The Harry Potter series is filled with hundreds of characters, all having their charm. Whether it's Harry Potter himself, Hermione Granger, or any other character of the series, every character has a unique story and a special aura that no viewer can ignore. 

Just like the characters in the show, your little cat also has a personality and an aura that can match at least one or more characters from the series!

There are hundreds of characters in the series, with each character having an extraordinary personality or power. 

Other than the male and female characters, there are various other characters like pets and fictional characters that you can easily name your cat after. 

So it would be fun to make your own little magical Hogwarts at your home.

Just before we get into the list of names to choose from there's one special cat from Harry Potter that we need to mention - Hermione's cat, Crookshanks. 

So, if the question going around your mind was 'what is Hermione's cats name?', we've answered that, but there's a lot more to learn about that particular cat here.

Now, onto the Harry Potter cat names you could choose for your cat!

Pet Names in Harry Potter Series

Here is an idea, how about you name your little buddy after your favourite pet in the Harry Potter series?

The Harry Potter series is filled with pets that we have loved since childhood. 

So naming your little furry friend after a Harry Potter pet will show your love and affection towards your favourite pet from the series and your real pet (your little kitty)!

Along with the male and female characters in the series, there were some notable pets, some of which are highly loved by the fans. 

So the best way to honour your little buddy is to name it after the name of your favourite pet in your favourite series!

  • Hedwig (The most loved pet of the series)
  • Scabbers
  • Crookshanks (Hermione's cat name)
  • Trevor
  • Fang
  • Buckbeak
  • Errol
  • Nagini
  • Pigwidgeon
  • Fawkes
  • The Niffler

You can still name your feline after your favourite pet!

We recommend you call your little friend Hedwig as your pet loves you, just as Hedwig loved Harry in the series. 

Just like that, the other pets in the series also have some specific characteristics.

So you can easily find the right name for your little buddy if you know your kitty’s personality!

Cats in Harry Potter

There are various cat characters shown throughout the Harry Potter series. So you can name your little buddy after your favourite cat.

  • Mr Paws
  • Mr Tibbles
  • Mrs Norris
  • Crookshanks

  • Tufty

Yes, you might think that the names mentioned above are some familiar cat names that you find everywhere. 

Many people may have cats with similar names, but the best thing is that you will have a unique backstory for picking a specific name for your little buddy. 

Moreover, having a prefix with your cat’s name as the first three in the above list can make your cat's name more interesting. 

You can also put Mr., Mrs., Dr., etc., with any name mentioned in the lists to show your little fur buddy even more love and respect.
