Hi Liz, I appreciate you checking out these names for these cool breeds!

You have compiled a thorough and detailed list of names. This is very helpful for anyone looking for a name for a cat.

Hi Lora, thanks for the read! I love the name Bogie! It is absolutely true that in most cases, cats rule! That's the dynamic in our household currently. Sometimes our sweet dog looks at us with fear in his eyes when "kitty" comes around . . . other times they are playing. I met a true Russian Blue a while back and this cat was so smart!!! So glad you liked this list.

This article has some purrfect names for gray cats! I had a beautiful gray cat that I adopted from a shelter and I named him Beauregard. How's that for a name? I called him Bogie for short. He was a big guy with a larger than life personality. He certainly fit your description of the personality of a gray cat. He was very outgoing, not afraid of anything, smart and funny too! He loved to put his feet into my slippers and he would go right up to my large dog and hiss at him if Andy wanted to play and he didn't! But then at times, he would chase the dog all over the house. There was no doubt who ruled! I just love the names that you have selected for these special cats. Next time I adopt a gray cat, I will use one of these names! Great job.
