My black and white Tuxedo cat is called Oscar. You’ll find several photos of him here – I can’t resist showing him off! Although it was over 11 years ago now that I named him, it’s a decision that rather stuck with me. The choices, and implications of getting them wrong, were just so overwhelming. Names for black and white cats can come from loads of different places. They don’t need to just be inspired by their gorgeous colors. From classic tuxedo cat names to unique ideas, today I’ll share the coolest choices for your new kitty.

Be a little careful when naming your cat for a feature. If i’d have named Oscar after the white tip of his tail I’d have been disappointed, because it had all but vanished by the time he reached adulthood. Your cat is an individual, and deserves a name that will really fit him or her to a tee for his lifetime. Both personality-wise and in looks! So while there are definitely names here that can be applied to cats of any color, I think you’ll find that some just seem to fit an Oreo cat perfectly.
Check out these awesome black and white cat names. We have hundreds of ideas perfect for cool cats and their owners, and we are ready to help you pick the right name for your new rescue cat or kitten.

I had a black and white female cat that resembled a cow so I named her “Bella-Rina” Bell, for like the Blue Bell cow and then I decided to make it more feminine by putting Rina at the end so it would sound like ballerina
That’s just too cute! ?
My Tuxies name is Mogwai from the movie, Gremlins. I named him that because he had (and still does) such huge ears when he was little. Somehow the little “Gremlins” (I guess they’re called) with their big ears popped into my head when I was thinking about names for my (now 17 year old) little guy. I just recently came across a beautiful 3 year old male Tuxie at my local Humane Society. They said he is very well socialized, great with both dogs and cats (currently, it’s just me and Mogwai) and he’s playful, but otherwise very much laid back and docile. I told them they just described Mogwai, other then he likes to turn my home (my bed room being the main part) into a race track/obstacle course in the wee hours like 1 or 2 AM, and play Indy 500 through the house, up and down off of furniture INCLUDING MY BED while I’m trying to sleep! Toys all over the place! And people look at me all weird like when I tell them he’s 17 years old!
My cat’s name is pussy.i named her that because she was such a beautiful cat which white background and 2black spots on her head a black spot middle of her back and black on the tail.I just love my cat so damnly much.And the names you wrote above I think I’ll be changing my cats name to one of ones mentioned above coz they are nice and cool.

I adopted my sweet Tuxedo cat when was 10 months old from Human Society and so happy with the joy he has brought me. His name was given before I got him. Tucker has stuck with me but I continue to call him “Baby”. lol I had a cat many years ago that lived until almost 10. She was very sick and had to put her down. It upset me so much I told everyone never want to go through that again. That was 20 years ago, I am older and live alone and decided I do need another furry baby again, Tucker was a blessing
Luna is under the “famous” list.

Eddie Thompson says
my cats 6 of them are all called pussycat,i would like names for them but i could not remember them as i even get my kid names mixed up and have only three of them. The great advantage of all having one name and that is when i call them for dinner etc i shout out “come on Pussycats” they all come running together.
The Queen herself called her corgies “Corgies” for just that reason. They probably all have official posh names, like Reginald the 8th Duke Pembrokeshire of Gothenburg-Thames, but the first pup would be finished with dinner by the time she finished calling the fifth one’s name.
