Naming Your Pet: Best Names for Orange Cats

When it comes to naming your orange cat, there are a few things you should keep in mind. The first is that orange is such a vibrant and eye-catching color that you’ll want to choose a name that reflects that. 

Secondly, orange cats are known for being friendly and playful, so you’ll want a name that suits those characteristics. Thirdly, orange cats tend to be a bit mischievous, so you should probably steer clear of picking names like ‘angel’ or ‘sweetie pie’.

How to find a great orange cat name?

If you’re looking for a good/cool name, try to find something that fits their personality. For example, if your cat is playful and loves to run around, you might want to name them “Bolt” or “Atom”. If they’re more of a lazy cat who just likes to lounge around, you might want to call them “Chester” or “Lazy”. 

You could also name them after a character from a movie or book that you like. For example, if you are obsessed with the movie “The Lion King”, you could name them “Simba” or “Nala”. If you love books, you might want to name them after a character in one of your favorite books. 

“Thumper” is a good name for cats who love to give kisses, “Rumpelstiltskin” is great if your cat jumps when you surprise them. If your cat just loves food, then definitely call them “Fatty”. For male cats that are really friendly with their owners, you could call them “Prince Charming”, or if they’re more of a troublemaker, “Cruella DeVille”.

For black cats, it’s nice to give them names that match their color. Some good names for black kittens are “Spooky”, “Shadow”, and even the simple friends, then you could name them both after characters from “Onyx”. 

The same goes for orange cats.
