Naming your Persian cat
Choosing a name for any new pet is fun, but it’s important to get it right.
After all, just like your gorgeous new Persian cat or kitten, the name you decide on will be for life!
You may have a name in mind for your new pet before you even collect him or her.
However, in many cases, your cat’s looks or personality will often choose their name for you!
Finding inspiration for cute Persian cat names
You might want to name your Persian kitten after your favorite film star, a singer, a family member, or even your best friend.
Perhaps you’re inspired by your cat’s looks or their eyes?
Maybe you like the idea of a name that reflects your Persian cat’s heritage.
Settling on a Persian kitten name
With limitless options to consider, how on earth do you choose?
Sometimes, the right name will just “click”.
For example, when I was a child, our family was “adopted” by a stray Persian cat who just turned up on our doorstep one day.
He was a solid grey Persian with the most gorgeous two-toned eyes.
Right away, I knew he just had to be called Smokey.
The name suited his color and the way he had mysteriously appeared, just like a puff of smoke!
Try to choose a Persian kitten name that you’re comfortable with and that is easy for your pet to learn.
Short names often work best for this reason.
However, don’t be afraid to choose a longer name if you find one you like, and perhaps shorten it to a nickname that your new Persian playmate can quickly learn and respond to.

Persian cat features
So, let’s get started by looking at Persian cats’ features and personality traits, which can often be a source of inspiration for names.
The Persian cat is a pedigree pet with fine ancestry!
As their name suggests, Persian cats are thought to hail from Persia (now known as Iran).
However, some historians think that the exotic Persian cat may have its ancestral roots in ancient Egypt.
Persians are very distinctive with long, glamorous coats and trademark flattened faces.
Their eyes can be blue, green, copper-colored, and every variation in between.
Some Persian cats even have eyes of different colors; Smokey had one blue eye and one green one!
Persian cat personality
Persian cats of both sexes are well-known for having gentle, laid-back personalities.
Much of a typical Persian’s day is spent chilling-out, interspersed with short playtime periods.
Although your Persian pal will “talk” to you, you won’t be alarmed by lots of intrusive noise, as a Persian’s meow is soft and quiet.
Most Persian cats are loyal and friendly, enjoying the company and attention of their human owners.
They love to be cuddled and gently groomed.
So, now you’ve got the picture of what your Persian cat will be like, it’s time to think of a name!
