So you need a name for your cat. Maybe it’s the stray you found on your porch one day, or maybe you went to the local animal shelter “just to look.” However, you came to find your new kitty companion; you’re probably wondering what to name them.
That’s where we come in. We’ve drawn on inspiration from movies, shows, books, and even mythology to give you 400 potential names for your new cat.
Every cat thinks it’s a star, but these high-profile felines became household names and stole the show.
What better place to start than Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats, and what better character than the leader of the Jellicle cats? If you have an old cat that is even wiser than they appear, this would be a great name to honor them with.
She’s not accepted as a Jellicle cat, and she’s definitely seen her better days. That doesn’t keep her from delivering one of the most powerful songs in musical history and winning our hearts as well as that of Old Deuteronomy. It would be the perfect name for the cat that’s a little rough around the edges but that you can’t help but love.
Another star of Cats, this name would be a great fit for the cat with an outgoing personality that carries a little extra weight around the middle and loves to play with her food. You can also shorten it to Jenny, and it’s still cute!
“Was there ever a cat so clever as magical Mr. Mistoffelees?” It’s the perfect name for the shy tuxedo cat that has a whole lot more to him than meets the eye.
If you have a cat that is not afraid to show you what she thinks, has all the confidence in the world and does not seem to be afraid of much of anything, then this would be a fitting name.
“You may see him in the square, but when a crime’s discovered, then Macavity’s not there.” Does that sound familiar? You know your cat is the culprit of whatever dastardly deed has been done, but you can never catch him in the act. Macavity’s not there!
This black panther (which is really just a leopard with extra pigment) is the friend and guardian of Mowgli, the man-cub. If your cat is as fierce as a black panther but warm and protective, then this would be a fantastic name.
He’s got a soft spot for Jasmine from Aladdin, but this tiger doesn’t like too many other people. If your cat is hostile towards others but gets along fine with you, then this would be a perfect choice.

This name would be perfect for an orange, pudgy, laidback kitten that loves to play and only acts tough – just like Toulouse from Aristocats.
Louis-Hector Berlioz was a French composer, and Berlioz from Aristocats shows off his own musical abilities on the piano. If your cat seems to fancy himself a maestro, then this would be a great name.
She may be just a kitten, but despite the pestering of Toulouse and Berlioz she tries to be a proper lady. This name would be perfect for the white kitten that seems full of haughty sophistication.
It’s no secret that Marie is trying to emulate her mother, Duchess, who has all of the grace and poise of a lady of wealth. If your cat has more elegance than you do, then why not give her a name to match.

In order to rebel against Scar’s oppressive rule, she seeks out Simba and helps him reclaim the Pridelands. If your cat is a tenacious little rabble-rouser with a good heart, this would be the perfect name.
For the cat that is always trying to go where he shouldn’t, the one that might think he has a lion’s roar but definitely has a lion’s spirit.
He’s the strong and benevolent king, the one who brings order to chaos and leads with wisdom. If your cat has all the makings of a wonderful king, then this is a great name to honor him with.

Hermione Granger’s orange half-kneazle has the ability to sniff out unscrupulous characters, and while your cat may not be mixed with any magical creatures, it would still be the perfect name for the cat that puts its trust in the right place.

The monster that is really a big mush pot on the inside, he’s not actually a cat, but he gets dubbed “kitty” by Boo, and that counts in our book. It’s the perfect name for the cat that looks a lot scarier than he ever could be.

Either way, this would be a perfect name for the cat that is just a little too arrogant.
Speaking of the Malfoys, if your cat tends to be a bit on the cowardly side despite putting up a tough front and if he likes to bully your other cats, this would be a great name for him.

This name would be perfect for the cat that is your best friend, your constant companion, and the one that is the harmony to your melody.
This musical term signifies the true end of a piece, one that is reached by playing through the tune once, then going back and repeating a smaller section until you get to it. Maybe you thought you were going to get a different cat, or maybe you didn’t plan to end up with a cat at all. Either way, this is a fitting name.
Slightly larger than a violin, this instrument is played by pulling a bow across the strings or plucking them. If your cat tugs at your heartstrings, then this would be a great name.

Another notable Russian composer, Shostakovich is known for his ‘Leningrad’ Symphony and the Piano Concerto No.2 that was featured in Disney’s Fantasia 2000. He’s not as popular as some of his Russian counterparts, which make this a great name for any lesser-known breed like the Donskoy cat.
He’s up there with Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff among the most influential Russian composers, and he created the works The Rite of Spring and The Firebird. It would be the perfect name for the Russian cat breed that has had a major influence on your life.
One of the greatest American composers, he has written works like Appalachian Spring and Fanfare for the Common Man. He is also known for his Western-themed pieces like Hoedown, and if your cat could definitely be a cowboy in another life then this would be a great name.
