I think we can all agree: a grey-coated feline is a sight to behold. With so many shades and variations of grey (dark, light, silvery, blue, lilac), these kitties are total beauts. From the sleek Russian Blue to the playful Chartreux, these cats never fail to put a smile on our faces.
Here at Rover.com, we think every grey cat deserves a name that highlights his unique style and personality. Which is why, once again, we’ve tapped into our huge database of Canadian Rover users to find the most creative and unique names out there—and we gotta say, our community did not disappoint.
Your search for the perfect grey cat name can stop here. This list has something to suit every type of cat (and owner).
Choosing the best name for your grey cat
As fellow cat lovers, we understand that your new grey cat is a part of the family. They need a name that showcases their individuality and your affection. So, where to begin?
Along with their silvery coat, consider your cat’s personality: are they a bold Arya or a sophisticated London? A shy Bluebell or an energetic Hurricane?
Cat owners nationwide are also turning to their own interests and hobbies for unique names ideas. The things you love most might inspire the perfect name (Yes—that means everything from “Dorian Grey” to “Zelda” is on the table.) And, of course, your cat’s grey coat doesn’t need to be the focus of his name. A grey cat can rock a popular feline name like Lily, Ollie, or Piper just as well as the next cat.
Across the board, we’re seeing a big shift in cat name trends as today’s pet owners gravitate towards more unconventional choices. We’re seeing more and more human names—like Frankie or Sophia—replacing traditional kitten names—like Mittens or Fluffy. Hipster baby names are growing in popularity too, with trendy pet owners picking unique monikers like Harper, Byron, and Nico.
