If you’re looking for a cat name with an air of mystery and a magical charm, you’ve come to the right place. Cats have inspired legends like Egyptian deities for thousands of years.

Mystical Cat Names Inspired by Astrology
Let’s dive right in, shall we? These mystical cat names are inspired by astrology. Some, like Aries, are obvious. Others, like Pan and Sunny, are more subtle. Can you tell which zodiac sign each name is associated with?
Mystical Cat Names Inspired by Astronomy
Not to be confused with astrology, astronomy is the study of space and celestial bodies. There is something innately magical about the night sky, though. If your cat is a shining star or absolutely otherworldly, one of these names would be perfect.
Mystical Cat Names Inspired by Pop Culture
Magical cats are famous throughout history, but these names are anything but old. You might be surprised to find the perfect mystical name for your cat from a favorite book, show, or movie.
Mystical Cat Names Inspired by Mythology
From ancient Greece to Nordic legend, these mythological names are as mystical as their origins. Your cat is sure to make an impression with the name of an old god, goddess, or hero.

Mystical Cat Names Inspired By Magical Beasts
Many magical beasts are based on cats, but some magical beasts may offer the perfect name for your cat. Is your cat a silent, stealthy Phantom or a water-loving Selkie?
Mystical Cat Names Inspired by Crystals
Crystals and magic go hand in hand, and it’s hard to imagine one without the other. This makes them the perfect inspiration for a mystical name. Jet or Onyx would suit a black cat beautifully, while Amber or Garnet would work well for an orange cat.
Mystical Cat Names Inspired by Botanicals
Like cats, plants have a long history of magical association. Celebrate your cat’s inner forest spirit with one of these botanical names.
Mystical Cat Names Inspired by Nature
Foggy days, lightning storms, and the first snow of the year carry a magical air. It’s on days like those that you feel lucky just to bear witness to the beauty of nature. These nature inspired names celebrate the beauty and magic of your cat.
