Superhero Cat Names for Females
Let’s start with some blockbuster films based on fabulous comic book heroines.
Hands down, Cat Woman has got to be number one on the list. Thinking of naming your kitten after a vixen dressed in tight shiny black spandex? If your cat reminds you of Michelle Pfifer or Halle Berry from those classic Batman films then this name is worth serious consideration.
Here is another superhero that nobody would want to mess with. Does your cat like to battle their enemies and reform them for the better good? Is she wise, honest, strong, and beautiful? If so, then Gal Gadot and Wonder Woman should be on your A-List.
Let’s flip the coin to the antagonist side for this femme fatale. For those who don’t know, Mystique is the hot and feisty blue character from the X-Men films. Is your cat impulsive and domineering with a superiority complex? Mystique may be a perfect match.
Back to the protagonists, let’s consider Storm from X-Men. Her character origin was based on a goddess that was worshipped by an ancient African tribe. She’s brave, confident, intelligent, and loyal. Also, she likes to stir things up from time to time if anyone gets out of line.
Carol Danvers, otherwise known as “Captain Marvel,” is one of the mightiest heroines of all. She had a complicated past with a DNA transfusion that gave her some extraordinary superpowers. She has incredible strength, agile flight, and the ability to conquer galactic evil. Name your cat Ms. Marvel if she is this marvelous.
Coming soon to a movie theater or TV screen near you, She-Hulk could be another possible name for your kitty. If you think the veterinarian could diagnose her with a multiple-personality disorder, then this name is definitely fair game. Just remember not to make her too angry. She-Hulk SMASH!
Game of Thrones Names
Moving to the next genre, let’s have a look at a couple of women from Game of Thrones (GOT). One is the lead female protagonist from the HBO series, while the other can sure handle herself better than most men can.
This name needs no introduction -- unless you have been living under a rock for the past decade. Daenerys Targaryen is the character played by Emilia Clarke, also known as Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons in the epic TV series Game of Thrones. If winter is coming, you may want to have her on your side.
Brienne of Tarth
Also known as Gwendoline Christie, Brienne of Tarth was another fan-favorite from GOT. Remember the scene when she fought a bear to save Theon and Sansa? She opened a can of whoop-ass. Name your cat after her if you aren’t allowed a guard dog. Besides, she will probably get the job done better anyway.
The Hunger Games Cat Names for Females
Back to the big screen: Let’s highlight two characters from The Hunger Games. They are actually sisters, so you could choose these names if you have a couple of phenomenal felines.
Hence the name, Katniss would likely be your go-to choice if you only have one cat.
If you have two, then why not name the other Primrose? Who knows. Maybe she will have an affinity for flowers too.
Female Harry Potter Character Names
If you are a Harry Potter fan, then these two recommendations may not represent the most famous characters from the films. Nevertheless, their names are very unique.
Is your cat somewhat odd and acrobatic? Bellatrix Lestrange seems to fit the bill.
Is your cat affectionate with bright eyes like the moon? You could give Luna Lovegood a go.

Funny Female Cat Names Inspired by Classic Movie Characters (Pre-2000)
To conclude the list, let’s quickly highlight some memorable characters from the 1990s, 80s, 70s, and 60s.
Trinity, played by Carrie-Anne Moss, was one of the female leads in The Matrix. She also has a similar “Cat Woman” vibe going on with the tight black fashion statement.
Leeloo, played by Milla Jovovich, was one of the Supreme Beings of the Universe in the movie Fifth Element. She was sent to Earth to destroy the Great Evil. Maybe we need Leelow now more than ever.
Are you a Star Wars fan? Honor Princess Amidala by naming your cat after her. Though, be careful with this one. She married Darth Vadar, so she may try to turn you to The Dark Side.
If you would prefer another princess from the 1990s, give Xena a shot. The TV series Xena: Warrior Princess was originally filmed in New Zealand and ran for 6 seasons on NBC.
Are you thinking of getting a female cat to accompany your male cat or dog? In that case, Lois Lane would go hand-in-hand with Clark Kent. Just remember to dress the male up in a Superman shirt.
For this final character, read the dialog and try to guess the name of the movie.
Man: Who are you?
Woman: My name is Pussy Galore.
Man: I must be dreaming.
Still having trouble guessing? Then, watch the classic scene from the film below...
