Russian Blue Cat Names
When naming your cat, you can be inspired by lots of things. Book characters, for example. Superheroes. Favorite friends and family members even. Or, perhaps your cat has a funny expression that makes naming easy.
The options are pretty much limitless. So how can you choose? Our method is to break them down into batches by category. Then you can narrow the list based on your likes and dislikes, and choose the one you like best.
Is it her fur, gender, size, or eyes that inspire you? Do you want a short name, a long name, a funny name, a regal name? Do you wish to acknowledge her breed? Is it something your whole family likes? Is there a nickname that you prefer?
Male Russian Cat Names
Human names for animals can be very popular. And with Russian blues, it might be tempting to give yours a Russian name, right? You can find baby names on the Internet, both in English and Russian. Here are some we like for Russian blue cat males:
Female Russian Blue Cat Names
If you have a girl cat, you can definitely pick some beautiful names in both English and Russian! Here are some options of monikers traditionally used for humans.
Of course, this isn’t even close to a complete list. Hopefully, you can use these to start getting inspired!
Cool Russian Cat Names
You can also name your cat based on descriptors of personality, color of fur, or color of the eyes. Russian blue cats tend to come in shades of gray, from shimmering silver to slate. They’re so pretty, why wouldn’t you use their color as an inspiration? Or, choose the day you adopted your cat, or the month! Does your cat like certain foods? Is he mischievous? Does she remind you of a favorite literary character or celebrity?
Unique and Unusual Ideas
Russian blues are so unique and personable, so why not choose a moniker that’s a bit unusual for your boy or girl cat?
Names As Sweet At They Are?
You don’t have to be silly if you want to give your kitten a cute name. Sometimes, just words that sound adorable or fun can fit the bill. And since all Russian blue cats are adorable, you’re all set now. Right?

Luna is a lovely name I was gonna name mine that but instead her name is Moon.
My Russian Blue cats name is WESA. Pronounced Wee sah. He is 10 months old. He has gold eyes. Beautiful boy.
If he has golden eyes then probably he’s not a purebred.
Not necessarily true. Most Russian Blues have golden or yellow eyes for up to a year after birth.
My Russian blue is 7 years young his name is Vladimir Putin I love him so.

My Russian Blue is 10 and his name is OVI named for Ovechkin.
We now have a 9week old Russian blue girl and we can’t seem to get a name to fit.
Margaret Anne says
We also had a 10 year old Russian Blue girl who was not happy as an indoor cat. We let her out and she was good for 20 years and then was killed last August by a car. Her name was Ivanka.
Oh no poor Ivanka! I would be devastated if my cat Moon died.
My male is Mocha and my tiny female is Tia, often called The Big T, or Sweet Tee. (coffee and tea companions so to speak.) Sweet and loyal cat breed.

First I like the clean layout of this site, no overpowering ad’s. Ton’s of info and laid out correctly.
I have a stray, barn, feral momma Blue Russian cat with two of four kittens. I am trying to so-call, rescue her. She is a very good momma cat, lets her babies eat first and watches over them.
She is still thin, but her kittens are fat and happy.
I purchased like $200 worth of stuff for them and they barely come inside. And maybe $195 more to get them all fixed. Almost $400 for cats I do not have names for yet. Hence, I am here.
I had a 90 pound GSD and no neighborhood pets were ever harmed, she owned the entire area. She, RIP, got hit by a dumb a## driving too fast. Now that she is gone, a stray dog has killed or maimed many small pets. That is just wrong.
Now I need you all to help me name a Russian Blue momma cat and two kittens. The kittens I do not know the sex yet.
Funny story about my cats name. My daughter fostered this cat, and was told it was a male. When I saw him, I instantly fell in love. I named him Sterling. Went to the vet for a checkup, and shots and was told he was a she. She was already responding to her name so her name has changed to Sterling Silver Belle.
