Is there anything more charming than a black and white cat? These well-dressed tuxedo kitties (or “tuxies” as they’re affectionately called) are about as dapper as they come. They definitely deserve a name that matches their sophisticated look. Lucky for you, pet names are kinda our thing. So if you’re on the hunt for the very best name for your black and white kitty, Rover has you covered.

The 10 most popular cat names in Canada
Curious about what Canadians are naming their cats these days? Here are the top ten most popular names pulled from our database. They’re not specifically intended for black and white cats, but they’d definitely suit any colour of cat.
How to choose the best black and white cat name
We get it. Your new dual-coloured cat is part of the family, and their name deserves to be special. Finding the perfect white cat name doesn’t have to be difficult, though. Especially with us here to hold your hand through it.
Along with their patterned coat, consider your cat’s personality: is she a posh Noir or an agreeable Dottie? A playful Patches or a peculiar Rorschach?
Your interests and hobbies can also serve as inspiration. Think about your favourite actors, musicians, characters, destinations, activities, and foods (Oreo or Peppermint Patty, anyone?) Choosing a name based on 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 black and white cat after the Looney Tunes character “Pepe Le Pew” if it makes you smile.)
One trend we’re loving is how people are using human names for their cats (and dogs, for that matter). Today’s cat lovers are choosing names like Dylan and Charlotte instead of more conventional monikers like Mittens or Lady. Hipster baby names are also finding their way into our popular cat name data. Names like Opal, Harper, and Luna 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 black and white cat’s personality will shine through no matter what name you choose.
As animal lovers through and through, we’re fascinated by current pet-naming trends, and we love searching our data to discover quirky choices and unique twists on old classics. Over the years, we’ve compiled plenty of names for you to peruse—and we keep our lists updated with new data each year. If you need more ideas, get inspired by one of our many pet name articles.
