When you’re choosing a name for your white cat, you don’t want to be basic. That tiny white snowball of fur deserves a unique, creative, fun name that describes not only his or her looks, but also personality. 

Does your kitty make you laugh with her antics? Have you been wondering if she was a comedian in a past life? Try naming her after a famous comedian like Joan Rivers or Amy Schumer. Maybe your cat is more mysterious and obtuse. Try a mystical name like Juno or Rune. 

Of course, your kitty’s physical features are also a wealth of name inspiration. Black-and-white cat? Domino, Oreo, and Spot are all good choices. 

Does your white cat have blue eyes? Maybe Frank (Sinatra, a.k.a. “Ol’ Blue Eyes”) or Angelina (Jolie, who is also famous for her striking eyes). If her eyes are green, try on Clive (Owen) or Adele, both known for their gorgeous green eye color. 

Speaking of celebrities, you might consider white cat names from movies or TV such as Duchess from Aristocats, or Blofeld (a.k.a. Number One) after the Bond villain who had a white Persian cat with an evil stare. 

A white-and-gray cat or tan-and-white cat can also offer up name ideas just with their coloration. How about Blizzard or Raindrop, Noodle, or Biscuit? 

If you're inspired by other cultures, look to specific languages such as Russian or Japanese, for white cat name ideas. You can be inspired by anything, really, so get your list of potential names started!
