Cute and Unique Persian Cat Names to Stand Out from the Crowd

Written by Amir Ali| March 4, 2022

Yesterday, I was on Reddit. There I saw some posts, wherein people requested their friends to suggest some ‘cute’ names for their cats and kittens. And, I swear they were adorable babies. They must deserve a name that does justice to their charm and reflects their personality. 

So cat parents turn to social media to get help from their friends and connections. But unfortunately, this method of finding a name on social media has some problems. First, it’s hard to tell a good name in a snap. As a matter of a fact, most people ignore such posts. 

Secondly, those who take out time to suggest some names rarely tell you the meanings. And once again you find yourself in trouble, “What exactly does this word mean?”. So, now you turn to Google and try to find out the meaning of all the shortlisted names. 

Huff! It’s tiring.

Wouldn’t it be better that you find a long list of different types of names along with their meaning in one place? So you can have a huge collection to choose from without waiting for the people to respond to your posts. And, then investing time on Google. Of course, it’s a lot better.

After, understanding your pain, I decided, that this week I’ll provide my readers with another resource where they can turn to whenever they welcome a new cat or kitten into their home. 

In this blog post, I’ll suggest 227 Persian Cat Names so that you have a plethora of names to choose from according to your preference. Additionally, looking at the popularity of Arabic and Indian names I included them in the list too. Cool?

O.K. let’s begin our list with the Arabic Names for Male Persian cats.
