Every cat has the ‘right’ to receive a ‘cute’ name and I support this with the raised paw and the loudest meow. Your sweetie deserves a name that just pop-ups the aww-feeling as soon as it’s being heard. 

No matter if you have a boy or a girl kitten, here you’ll find the cutest and the most popular cat names for both (along with their meanings). So you don’t have to waste another hour on Google to search for the meanings.

Today’s post is also special because it takes care of the taste of every cat parent. It includes cute cat names based on animals and foods. If you still miss your childhood and want to see the little you in your then go for the names inspired by Disney (and other cartoons), superheroes, and movies. Or if you want to give your cat a name that is cute as well as sounds unique then try Indian or Arabic cat names. Don’t worry you’ll also get the list of Goofy cat names if you want to try something funny and loving.
