The Most Unique Cat Names

At Rover, we love sharing the stories of our pets’ names. As animal lovers, each of our pets has a carefully chosen name just for them. Some are classic candies like Coco, while others are straight from our favorite sci-fi shows, like a particularly tiny cat named Beverly Crusher.

When my family adopted two kittens last year, the naming rights went to the kittens. My son proudly announced that the orange kitten would be named Gandalf Carrot Cupcake. I was skeptical to say the least, but now I love my cat’s unique name. And the cat is fine too.

Choosing a unique name for a new cat can be both a conversation starter and an expression of your personal interests and love for your pet. After all, our cats are special and deserve personalized names and personal attention.

To trigger your search for a unique cat name, I used Rover’s database of hundreds of thousands of registered users across the United States. Also in this list are some of the most unique cat names and naming trends based on this data. than other fun categories, like names based on wildcats or literary characters.

How to choose a unique cat name

Your new cat’s name can be as unique as you are. If you’re thinking of names, try the backdoor test. Go to the back door or window and call out all the names on your list. If some seem too silly or seem like something else entirely (“Dinner time, ice cream!”), keep going until you find the right combination. I also like to think about nicknames. Each of my pets has at least a dozen. Gandalf Carrot Cupcake meets “cake-cake” these days.

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 him the perfect cat sitter with Rover.

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