Why Choose Funny Cat Names for our Cats?

Cats are the best creatures on this earth. They are cute, clever, fluffy, and funny. From chasing their tails to hiding in the boxes, they have the ability to entertain us all the time. I think they deserve all the love and attention. Ever since I was a kid, I used to love cats so much and when I got my own cat, that was the happiest day of my life.  

Cats have an amazing sense of humor but even if your cat has a serious personality, choosing funny names for a cat is a great way to acknowledge the humorous abilities of your cat. Apart from this, it will also bring a smile on your face whenever you’ll call your cat. 

To make your life easier, we have included some of the funny names for female cats, male cats, tabby, Persian, and ginger cats. Oh, and if you’re looking for some cute names, we’ve still got you covered because you’ll also find some of the cutest cat names in this article.

How To Choose the Best Funny Cat Names

Choosing a funny cat name is a fun process but it may not always be easier. You need to be creative while thinking about a funny name because there is no hard and fast rule when it comes to funny names. A lot of funny cat names are a play on words, it really can be that simple.

These names can originate unexpectedly. Maybe your cat made a funny noise while you were watching a movie and suddenly a name clicked in your mind. Or maybe you love avocados so much that you’ve decided to call your kitty an avocado. These names also depend on your personal preference.

From using random names to researching funny cat names on reddit, you can have so much fun while choosing a name for your cat. However, if you’re still struggling to come up with a funny name, here are some of the ways through which you can spark your creativity and can come up with the funniest name for your cat:

Consider Your Kitty’s Appearance

Considering your kitty’s appearance while deciding a name is one of the best ways to come up with a funny name. However, considering an appearance does not mean using a boring name such as a black cat. It means to think about the appearance of your cat and then relate it with a funny situation. This way, you’ll be able to think about a funny name.

For example, does your cat have cute little markings? Or does he like to wear a hat? Use these ideas to think about a name that’ll bring a smile on your face. Apart from this, you can also relate a funky name with your kitty’s appearance. So, for example, if your cat’s skin color is black or grey, you can name him Mr. Smokey. See, even black cat names can be funny or creative.

If your cat has a black mark around his eye, you can name him a pirate. If his mark is similar to a heart, you can name him cupid. If your cat’s appearance is similar to a movie character, such as puss in boots then you can also use the name of that character. Try to be creative when thinking about a name related to appearance.

This type of name not only brings out your creative thinking skills but they also celebrate your cat’s uniqueness.

Consider Your Kitty’s Breed

Another way to come up with creative, funny cat names is by considering your cat’s breed. It can give you a lot of ideas. There are many different kinds of cat breeds such as Persian cats, Bengal cats, British shorthair cats, Russian blue, Scottish fold, Himalayan, and so on.

When you think about your cat’s breed, does it remind you of anything else? If yes, boom! You just got a cool idea. But if they don’t remind you of anything else, then you need to think more carefully. If your cat’s breed is Russian blue, is there anything else in your house that is Russian? Maybe it’s a salad dressing?

If your cat’s breed is Himalayan, then does it remind you of anything else? Maybe it reminds you of all the beneficial effects of Himalayan salt or maybe it reminds you of Himalayas?
Persian cats have a reputation for being divas and very high maintenance.

What else is considered a Diva or very high maintenance? A prince? A Duchess? Maybe a queen? You can use all these ideas as names. They all make funny names for a cat.

Consider Your Kitty’s Personality

Just like appearance and breed, personality is also a great way to get some ideas regarding funny names. When you get a new cat, don’t rush into naming her right away. Take some time to observe her personality so that you can know what your cat likes and what she does not like. 

Taking some time to observe her personality will give you some amazing name ideas. For example, if your cat behaves like a royalty, Cleopatra might be a good name for her. If she loves adventures then you can also pick an adventurous name for her such as Mulan. 

The trick is to give her some time before naming her so that you can observe her habits. You’ll soon get inspiration for some funny name ideas. 

Get Inspiration From Movies

Movies are also a great way to get some inspiration. There are many famous cat characters that have cute as well as funny cat names. If you have a favorite movie character then you can use his name for a cat. However, if you don’t have a favorite movie character then you can use the name of a character whose qualities are similar to your cat. 

Many movie characters have exotic names that are super funny. You can use one of those names as well. If you think your pet deserves a unique name, you can go for an exotic name. Examples of a few famous cat characters are Garfield and Puss in Boots.

Get Inspiration From Comics and Superheroes

Apart from movies, you can also get some inspiration from comics and superheroes while thinking about a funny name. People who are superhero enthusiasts love to name their cats based on their favorite superhero or even supervillain. These funny cat names may not be very unique but they are quite interesting to use.

Some of the examples of the names inspired by comics and superheroes are Thanos, Gamora, and Nebula.
