Advice on choosing the best white cat name
Cat names used to be pretty straightforward (“here, Fluffy!”) and while there’s nothing wrong with those old-fashioned choices, today people are gravitating towards more unconventional names for their pets. Your search for the perfect white cat name doesn’t have to be complicated, though—especially with us here to help!
You know that your cat is highly individual, so think about what sets him apart from the rest of his feline comrades. Along with his white coat, consider his unique personality: is your kitty a goofy Creampuff or a loyal Hope? A knockout Blondie or a mysterious Luna?
Next up: your interests and hobbies. Think about your favourite foods, musicians, artists, destinations, characters, and activities. Choosing a name inspired by something you’re passionate about shows off your fabulous taste as well as your affection for your new kitty. Remember, the sky’s the limit here. (Yes, that means you can name your white cat after the glowing elf queen “Galadriel” from The Lord of the Rings if it makes you smile.)
Something a little more obvious is to choose something that means…well, white. Blanco, for instance, means white in Spanish, and Bianca translates to white in Italian. Other popular white cat names evoke the colour white, such as Snowflake or Ivory.
One trend we’re loving is how pet owners are using human names for their cats (and dogs, for that matter). Today’s cat lovers are choosing names like Oliver and Constance instead of more conventional monikers like Mittens or Lady. Hipster baby names also find their way into our popular cat name data. Names like Opal, Harper, and Byron are just as hot for kittens as they are for trendsetting human babies.
Our final words of advice: have fun with the naming process! Don’t let the decision weigh you down—your white cat’s personality will shine through with any name that you choose.
