Top 100 White Cat Names
White cats are often loved for their pureness, innocence, and beauty; they often are associated with spiritual feelings and often have a calming effect on their owners. There are several species of cats that can be white. The following species all have a white variety:
- Persian Cats
This is not a conclusive list as white-haired cats can appear in many popular breeds due to a lack of melanin pigmentation or a gene mutation. When deciding great cat names for a white cat you should consider the character of the cat; simply calling the cat puffball or snowball will not usually fit the cat.
How to Choose a Name for a White Cat
- Evasive or Elusive Cats: If the white cat always hides or stays away in the shadows then a great name may be Lightening or Casper.
- Evil and Playful Cats: Cats who seem to have the devil in them and are always playing and causing havoc may be given names like Ice Queen or Eve.
- Mystical Names: Some white cats seem to look at you with their amazing eyes and seemingly know every secret you hold; there’s something mystical about them so names like Moonlight or Freyja may be appropriate.
- Innocent Names: With their pristine beauty and often great personalities white cats often convey a sense of innocence—thus names like Nun and Angel fit them.
Picking a name for a cat is a difficult process; should you pick a serious cat name or a funny cat name? Try to make a list of 20 names and then narrow them down based on their character. As white cats are not generally gender-specific, you may find a masculine name such as Jack Frost or a feminine name such as Daenerys (the white-haired character from Game of Thrones) is more suitable.
Narrowing down the choices will eventually allow you to pick the perfect white cat name.
