These 230 amazing, fun and adorable Ragdoll cat names are inspired by the unique features of our favorite breed. Ragdoll cats are known for being affectionate, doting, and for following closely at your heels without needing any encouragement. They absolutely love their owner’s attention, but not in a bossy way. They are usually fairly quiet cats, laid-back, with a propensity to curl up by your side. And unlike many cats, Ragdoll kittens are often very tolerant of being picked up and carried around.

Naming any new pet is an exciting process. Sometimes the best name leaps out at you the moment you meet your new friend. More often finding a name is a little more challenging! There are some great ways to get creative though. Your cat’s appearance may give you some ideas. If you have a blue mitted Ragdoll for example, you might want to call her ‘Sky’, or ‘Mittens’.
Our collections include ideas for male Ragdoll cat names, female names, color-based and personality-based themes, and cute ideas too. If one of these jumps off the page to you, perfect! Have a pen and notepad to hand as you may find you are inspired to come up with your own variation. That’s great too!
If you want your cat to be really unique, you can even invent a brand new name of your own. Take a name you know and change the end or beginning to give it a new twist. Check out some ideas below. You never know, you might start a new trend!
Unique Names For Ragdolls
Inspired By Ragdoll Personality
These cuddly, sleepy, tender, and devoted felines have inspired us with the following suggestions.
30. Guiding Star
Ragdoll cats share three main physical features. They are big (and we mean big, ranging from 10-20 pounds), fluffy, and have striking, bright blue eyes.
And while Ragdolls come in a variety of coat colors, including blue, they usually have a “pointed” patterning. This means that their ears, feet, legs, and tail, are frequently darker colored than the rest of their body. This coloring and those big blue eyes remind us of their likely descent from the better-known Siamese cat (more on this later).
Their sweet and gentle nature means that flower names can be a great choice for your Ragdoll

Ragdoll Cat Names Male
With their beautiful markings and striking eyes, some might say that Ragdolls have an aristocratic look about them. Here are some slightly more serious names that might suit the well dressed Ragdoll male cat about town. We just love this collection and some of the names are very unusual.
Ragdoll Cat Names Female
As in the previous section, we’ve included some names that are longer and quite elegant. We will later take a look at some different, shorter “nickname” forms for suggestions, but feel free to use the shorter form of any of our below suggestions.
Coat Color Ragdoll Cat Names
Ragdoll cats come in a variety of colors: seal, chocolate blue, lilac, red, and cream. Often coloring is “pointed,” meaning the main body is paler than tips, so ears, face, legs, tail and feet. Thus, you will not see a Ragdoll cat that is all-over one color, unless it is still a kitten.
Often the body is white or a slightly darker variation, and areas such as the ears, face, and feet will run from just a smidge darker than white or “creamy” to a dark brown “seal” coloring. We’ll explore these two sides of the spectrum below, keeping in mind that the other color possibilities generally fall somewhere in between.
Luxurious Cream Themes
Ragdoll cats that are cream colored may be the easiest to name. They still have ‘points’, but the pointed areas of the coat (muzzle, ears and paws) will be cream, with not much dramatic differentiation between those and the rest of their fur. This cream colorway, is the closest to a solid one-color Ragdoll cat coat you’ll find.
The “cream” versus white coloring is more noticeable with some Ragdoll cats than others, so those possible differences will both be reflected with the names below. Here are some ideas for cream color Ragdoll cats:
4. Cotton Ball
6. Snow White
13. Cream Cheese
16. Cheese Cake
18. Moon Cake
In contrast to cream colored Ragdoll cats, seal point coloring is very noticeable, with a dark brown color marking the ears, legs, feet, and face. This particular coloring, along with those distinctive bright blue eyes, is reminiscent of Siamese cats. In fact, Ragdolls are largely believed to be at least in part of Siamese descent.
Seal Point Siamese Styled Names
Interestingly, while seal point Ragdolls may look similar to Siamese cats, they in fact have significant personality differences. For example, Siamese cats are loud and vocal, while Ragdolls are not. In fact you’ll be lucky to get more than a tiny squeak for a greeting out of your shaggy friend when you return home.
Siamese cats are also known for being quite active, mischievous, or attention seeking. While Ragdoll cats are much more laid-back, and mainly interested in chilling out.
And while Siamese cats originate from Thailand, and have a long history as a “Royal Cat”, Ragdolls are a more recent breed discovered in the U.S. just in the past few decades.
These seal point Ragdoll cat names are influenced by the Siamese cat’s foreign origins, and royal, dignified past.
1. Pho and Mia (Two of first imported Siamese cats to the west, in the 19th century)
Cute Ragdoll Cat Names
Ragdoll cats, whether kitten or full grown, are undeniably cute. And cute names are often inspired by the small, the cuddly, and the tasty!
They are also usually quite short, two syllable names. Here’s a collection of our favorites.
18. Fluff Ball
31. Sweet Pea
Inspired By Blue Eyed Beauties
What’s not to love about those stunning blue eyes. In this final collection of names we focus on the color blue. We’ll be drawing inspiration from the natural world, from minerals to oceans and inland waterways. Let’s dive straight in!

Great names. I named my male ragdol Cricket because he jumps all over the place when playing
River is the purrfect name for my cat
My rag dolls are Tiramisu, Mojo, Bella, and Kiwi. Great cats!
Our ragdoll girls are Iris and Irene. Iris is a blue-eyed white, so I thought Iris is related to her blue irises. Irene is a seal point, and I gave her an alliterative name to go with Iris. She’s my sweet Irene.
I named my female Ragdoll Pebbles. I couldn’t find a name the family agreed on, so I just said names out loud which the cat paid no attention to until I said Pebbles she turned and look at me. So I guess she picked her name.
I’m naming my cat paschel, wish us a Hebrew word meaning Passover. Or pascal, a French scientist.
I am calling mine vanilla 🙂 so cuteeee

Although I don’t have a Ragdoll, I have a Tabby named Daphine, and my sister has a new kitten named Jaide. Pronounced Ja-de. Just spelled differently. I don’t really know Jaide’s breed though. She’s silver with some black, even black on the end of her tail. though under her nose it’s white. her nose is black, unlike Daphine. Her eyes are brownish.
Madison Soto says
I meant Jade for the pronounced thing.

Hi! So my family and I just bough a beautiful white and grey rag doll. I’ve searched everywhere for names, but we can’t all just agree on one. I’m running out of ideas. Do y’all have any??
The names we kind of like so far are.. Sampson and Moon, we were thinking of Mowgli for a while too but out kitty doesn’t seem to fit that name very well
Andrea E Marquez says
How about Miyagi?
Mrs I Barker says

How about Fifi or skylar?
Bobbi E. says
We had a Sealpoint Ragdoll named Mr. Frodo. We lost him to cardiomyopathy 2 years ago.
Now we have a Flamepoint named Samwise & a Sealpoint named Bilbo Baggins. We figured they are Hobbits because they have fur on the bottoms of their feet. Love the breed!
Barbara Ferron says
We named our Ragdoll “Yeti” like the abominable snowman. He was white when he showed up on our doorstep a few years ago but he has turned cream and looks exactly like the cream cat in the picture. Everyone notices that he is beautiful.
Noelene Darcy says
I have called my male Ragdoll kitten Wyntr.
Lesley Martin says
Your ideas for names are fab! Picked Angel for my Blue point girl, also love the perfume and have a necklace with Angel too 🥰
I want to get a point and name her Opal. Also, a Crème or Red point. I don’t know what to name her, I was thinking Ivory or Iris. I love how Ragdolls will just flop into your arms when held.
I named my rag doll sally because she’s a pure bread and she like’s to be mischievous.
i name her after my german shepheard i had to give away because he was scared of the dark and started jumping the fence and going crazy. We couldn’t keep him inside (he would reack the place) so i tried to name her after him and the closest i could come up with is sally.
I’m on a wait for my girl. Some really interesting names there. I have a Beautiful Shizt zhu X Maltese rescue girl. First 2 nights she cuddled me so closely I changed her name to Cuddlz. I noticed one of your names was Cuddles.
Mary Martell says
My Male ragdoll’s Mom cat was called Ember……white with cream/orange. I called my kitten Jaspurr…..lol
wite rider says
Our 12 yr old long hair cream ragdoll was found trapped in a wall at work when about 2 months old. At that age he was just this tiny ball of snow white fur when we pulled him out of the wall through a hole we had to cut to reach him. We named him Q-tip. It wasn’t until much older that the cream flame point coloring showed itself. He is a huge cat matching our Maincoon cat in weight at 15 lbs apiece.
I named my Ragdoll cat CheeseCake.
I have a lynx point called Clyde and a chocolate seal point named Bonnie and I need a name for their bi colour female baby which I’m keeping. I was thinking China
How about Bread?
We named our gorgeous ragdolls Rosie and Echo
I called my male Ragdoll, Ragnar and my female Lagertha
Meow meow says

Quiet and affectionate boy.
Any suggestions welcome 🤗
Still convincing my family to get s ragdoll but I really love the name Kori <33
We have a Blue Point Mink named Luna. We call her Luna Loo or Loony Tunes too! This is our first Ragdoll and we are totally in love with this breed! She acts like she is one of the dogs. Smartest cat I’ve ever seen 🥰.
I foster kittens so naming them is quite the feat considering how many I get. Currently I have three Ragdoll females about 5 weeks old, I am naming one Freya, Sapphire and I cannot settle on the third one now.
Any suggestions is much appreciated.
I got 5 ragdolls Bonnie, Clyde, Lilith(Lilly), Hunter & Cocoa
