There are a lot of cat name generators on the Internet, but they aren’t all create equal, so we have our top two picks:
We like name-generator.org.uk. Answer some questions about your cat’s coloring, gender, size, intellect, and how down to Earth he or she is. You can also include some additional adjectives to describe you feline and indicate whether you want a long or short name.
Although she already has a name, we entered a description for our tortoise-colored cat Motor. Suggestions included cut names like Chunk, Amber, Orca, Pixie, Sundae, Cleo and Olive, along with some names that made us chuckle, including Mrs Moroseworth and Miss Fondlickle (it’s cute, but we couldn’t imagine trying to say that with a straight face at the vet’s office).
One of the aspects about this site that we like best is that it provides a reason as to why the name is suggested as opposed to just random names. For example, the name Silhouette is “tagged as suitable for a black cat.”
The other cat name generator we like is at yourpetname.comThis one is really simple. Just hit “Generate Cat Names” and you get a list of five names. What we like about it is that, unlike at some other sites, the names are good. We got suggestions like Oak, Newton, Kelso, Egg Roll and Talia. These cute names kind of make us want to go out and adopt more cats just to bestow them on some lucky animals. (Kind of, but after years of being a multi-cat household, we’re really happy with one cat.)
