Choosing a name for your male cat will be fun and offers you all kinds of opportunities for brainstorming names that match his cool, unique, or playful personality. Does he love to watch TV? Consider names based on your boy cat’s favorite sports team, or names based on Disney characters he seems fixated on. Does he get riled up when you listen to country music? There are plenty of country boy cat names to consider. 

Lean into your boy cat’s clownish antics by giving him a circus-inspired name. Or play up his too-cool attitude with a badass boy cat name. As you get to know your boy cat, you’ll uncover his quirks and the unique name that fits him. Let those unique characteristics inspire a name that describes your male cat’s likes and dislikes, outlook on life, or favorite activities. 

When choosing a name for your boy cat, aim for two syllables and keep it simple to pronounce. You also want to consider the names of other two-legged and four-legged (or no-legged) household members. Make your cat’s name unique so that no one is confused when you call

Use our list of names for every letter of the alphabet as inspiration or to start a family brainstorm to land on the ideal name for your boy cat.
