Have you recently adopted a Tortoiseshell, Tabby or Siamese Cat? Congratulations! These are three terrific cat breeds and an excellent choice as a pet.
But what to name your new kitten?
It can be hard to choose a name for a cat. Often times people simply choose any old name and leave it at that, but a cat is a living, breathing family member. Therefore, it is only right to put some care into choosing the right name.
When choosing a name you want it to be easy enough to say. You can try to the “front porch test” where you yell the name from the porch, because eventually you probably will have to and you want it to be easy enough to say.
And of course you can choose a name for your kitten based off of their coat color and pattern.
Another common way to choose a name is to carefully observe your new furry friend's personality and character traits.
To help you narrow down your choices, we have carefully selected the best cat names for tortoisheshell cats, tabby cats and siamese cats. We hope you find the perfect one!
Tortoiseshell Cat Names
Tortoiseshell describes the coat's pattern and coloring. Tortoiseshell coat coloring is one of the most beautiful and unique of all cat fur patterns. Tortoiseshell patterned cats are almost exclusively female cats. Because of this, the names here are mostly female or unisex.
Tabby Cat Names:
Were you aware that a tabby is actually a color pattern, not a type of breed? A tabby is sometimes called a grey tiger because the stripe pattern is similart to that of a tiger. However, a tabby's coat isn't just stripes, it is a unique pattern of stripes, swirls, and dots. In addition, on the tabby's forehead you usually find lines in the shape of the letter “M”.
Siamese Cat Names
The Siamese breed originally came from Thailand (formerly known as Siam) and has become a popular breed throughout the world over the past century.
Siamese cats can have a variety of colors and patterns, usually they are primarily white with sections of dark fur around their tail, face, ears and legs. Siamese cats typically have beautiful blue almond-shaped eyes. Siamese cats are a social breed and enjoy interaction and companionship with humans and other cats.
