Black Cat Names

Aww your precious new bundle of meows, purrs and black fluff has just come home. It’s so cute and funny, but now you need to search for good black cat names to find a suitable name for life.

Black kittens are no harder to name than any other colored kitties, but there seems to be an air of mystery about these little fellas. As kittens they are playful and get into as much trouble as all other baby cats do. But as they mature they appear sleek, graceful and even somewhat aloof.

Black cats give the impression that they just seem to “know” things. Well, just don’t let this facade fool you! They desire a seriously good smooching, or a hug just as much as any other pet, and probably more so.

Figuring Out Names for Black Cats

But what are you going to name your black cat? Kittens seem to react to one syllable names a lot better than longer ones. And its always easier to call out a name that flows, or one ending in an “e” or “y” sound. Always remember to make it something you are happy to yell out loud in your neighborhood … as you try to reclaim your prowling kitty if they are an outside cat.

I have listed some suggestions below, but remember you can also be original and think outside the box. Like … why name your black kitten Inky, Blackie or Midnight – when you could be totally original and call them something unexpected like Snowflake, Goldilocks or Spot instead!

Watch your cute little black bundle for a while. What are their traits, what is their personality like? Are they playful, sporty, sneaky, sleepy? Maybe they are a Ninja or a Clawdia, a Catzillah, or a Catanova, a Pawdoor or some other play on words?

Most of all enjoy your new black kitten while it is small, because they grow so fast. Remember also that the funny, cutesy or macho black cat names you bestow upon them will last their lifetime. So just make it something you like.
