1. Alchemy

This name, in particular, is great for all the science lovers out there. Alchemy is not only a unisex name for your cat, but it's also a great name for the feline with an intelligent personality! We've all known of at least one super smart cat in our lifetimes!

I have personally been prone to owning several very intelligent cats over the course of my life. Cats are extremely intelligent by nature anyway, but then there are those cats that are so smart, they make you question even your own intelligence level at times!

2. Cloud

Cloud is a fairly popular name that cat parents often give to their fur baby! When I think of the name Cloud, I think of it as a perfect name to give to a cat with fluffy white or gray fur. This name is also perfect for folks are just really interested in weather in general. Let's keep going!

3. Loki

Norse Mythology and Avengers fans, rejoice! I present you the amazingly popular cat name Loki! Loki is the name of the Norse god of mischief as well as the name of a popular character featured in the Thor and Avengers films. I've been itching to add this name to the list, as an Avengers fan myself! But I've got to put this warning out to all pet owners planning to give their cat this name: You just might be in for a world of mischief and other cat shenanigans!

4. Jasper

Jasper is another one of my personal favorite unisex cat names. The name Jasper has a bit of a historical context to it if you dig a little deeper. Jasper comes for the Latin word gaspar meaning treasurer. Who knows? You might have a cat that's extremely interested in digging for treasures around the house and in the backyard! But then again, what cat doesn't enjoy stumbling upon new toys and trinkets?

5. Bailey

Not only is Bailey a super cute and sophisticated name for your cat, but you guessed it—Bailey is also a unisex name that is very common among male and female cats!

Beautiful black cat.

6. Shadow

This may be a very simplistic and common cat name, but it's designed that way for a reason! Shadow has always been an ideal name for a regal, black cat (in my opinion). But honestly, it goes well with your typical stealthy ninja cat as well! Be sure to keep this name in mind for the future if you happen to meet a cat that sort of just skulks around in the shadows!

7. Smokey

Like shadow, the cat name Smokey also gives me also gives off mega stealth cat vibes. Storing this name in my favorites bag!

8. Sam

Just like the name used for humans, the name "Sam" can go either way! This means that the name Sam is another great unisex name to keep in mind. It's short and to the point. Not to mention, it's pretty popular here in the States!

Feline royalty embodied!

9. Ace

Ace is a great unisex cat name that is fit for even the royals! Give this name to your cat if he or she enjoys being pampered and treated like royalty. This name is meant for the even the most majestic of the feline world!

10. Cookie

Okay, just for the record, I have to admit that this name is super adorable! Do you have an extremely cutesy cat in your life? The kind of cat the enjoys being cooed and talk to like a newborn? Then the name Cookie is perfect for your new cat! And did I forget to mention? It's unisex!
