What are good orange cat names?
Orange cats (or ginger cats) are among the most popular cat types there are and have cropped up all over the world in cartoons and TV shows (Garfield being perhaps the most famous orange cat.). Generally there are no breeds of Orange cat as they can be found in many different breeds; predominantly they are part of the tabby cat.
While many argue that orange cats are among the most charismatic types of cat, with a personality that often matches their color, there really isn’t anything to set them aside from the normal tabby cat. Generally they are easy to domesticate, are friendly and warm, love to play and have a little bit of the devil in them at times.
Thus when deciding a great cat name for your orange tabby you should take into account his or her character, not just the coloring; it’s easy to simply name the cat Ginger or Marmaduke, but you may find a better fit based on their characteristics.
Examples of how to choose an Orange cats name:
Evil and Playful cats: orange cats often seem to have the devil in them and are often causing trouble or in trouble. What better name can you think of that Prince Harry or even Ron Weasley, both boisterous ginger headed men!
Celtic Names: orange hair is synonymous with Celts and particularly the Irish, therefore a great name for an orange cat might be Flynn or Rory.
Typical names: of course if you cannot work out what character your orange cat has you can use some of the funny cat names or atypical ginger cat names like Orange Juice, Carrot, Tabasco or Ginger. Of course you could confuse everyone by naming your cat Snowy.
Famous Names: does your orange cat exude fame? Is he or she destined to be a star? The why not use a famous name like Marmaduke or Garfield?
Picking names for any cat is difficult at the best of time. Sometimes it’s not obvious what character your cat has and you may need to pick out a list of 10 or 20 names first and then gradually reduce the number until you find the name that fits. The gender of the orange cat usually doesn’t matter but there are a couple of names that are more appropriate for females such as Lucy or Tulip. More masculine names like Ferris or Oscar also fit well.
With a little time to observe your cat you’ll soon come up with the perfect name.
