Choosing the Best Gray Cat Name

Whether you have a British Blue Shorthair, a French Chartreux or perhaps a Russian Blue, a gray haired cat is a sight to behold. One of the rarest color variations in a cat is called “lilac” or “lavender,” a cool blue-grey that’s usually evenly distributed throughout the coat.

Your new gray cat is part of the family, so take the time to choose a name you like. In addition to their silvery coat, do you also consider your cat’s personality: a fiery paprika or an elegant violet? A cheeky Bubbles or a mischievous Grady? Your interests and preferences also play a role in animal naming. Cat lovers chose names of favorite foods, book characters, colors, and musicians to name their newly adopted kitten or cat. Yes, that means everything from Dorian Gray to Zelda is on the table.

And of course, color doesn’t have to matter when it comes to your cat’s name. A gray cat can have a cat name like Lily, Ollie, or Boots just as easily as any other cat.

Cats generally don’t respond to their names like dogs, mainly because cats are much less likely to be trained (and therefore taught to associate their names with specific outcomes) by cat owners. Say your cat’s name often, so give your best admirers a spin. Say them out loud and discover how easy they are. Don’t forget to say if you want to hear the audio.

Gray cat naming trends

In general, we’re seeing a big increase in human names for cats (and dogs too, by the way!), while word names like Smokey and Shadow and character names like Baloo and Meeko remain prominent. , the fastest growing cat names are also popular baby names.

This means that cat lovers are choosing Gracie, Rowan, and Albus (full name Albus Dumbledore, of course) as kitten names instead of Lady or Kitty. Hipster baby names can also be found in our data on popular cat names. Names like Opal, Griffin, and Luna appeal to newly adopted kittens and cats as well as forward-thinking human babies.

With gray cats in particular, we see an ongoing fascination with naming cats after other animals. These include the mouse, goose, wolf and fox, as well as the more unusual koalas and otters.

After all, the names of the moon and sky are important to gray cats (as well as black cats!). These include the ever-popular Luna along with Selena, Artemis, Luna herself, and Jupiter, Venus, Nimbus, and Storm.

Need a cat sitter?

Cats naturally seem to be more independent than dogs, but they also need attention, games, and treats when you’re not around. Your big cat deserves excellent care. You’ve found the best cat name, so now it’s time to find the perfect cat sitter for her.

Find your cat’s perfect companion right from your phone, then set off with pleasure.
