Naming a cat is both the most enjoyable and hardest parts of becoming a new pet owner.
On one hand, there are just so many names out there and it can be incredibly fun to go through them and pick the best one for your kitten.

Savannah cats are a truly remarkable breed.
They are hybrids between a domestic cat and a serval, which is a type of wild cat that lives in Africa.
This cross breed produces a giant, wild looking domestic cat.
These cats truly are the giants of the cat world.
Savannah cats can fall anywhere between a domestic cat and a serval in terms of size, and they can reach upwards of 20 pounds.
These cats also sport an incredible spotted coat – they really are beautiful and unique!
Naming your Savannah Cat
Such a unique cat deserves a unique name!
For any breed of cat, we recommend choosing a name with a maximum of three syllables, so that it’s easy for them to learn, and you to use in training.
But other than that, there are no limits to where you can look for inspiration.
In the lists below we’ve chosen Savannah cat names for male and female cats, and looked for ideas from their ancestors’ African homeland.
Grab a pencil and get ready to jot down your favorites!

I named my male Sevannah kitten “Juju.” He learned it immediately.
My female Savannah is Eve short for Evening and my male Savannah is Roary Short for Roarin.
although my male savannah’s name is René, I have realized that I should have named him Cato (as in the old Pink Panther movies), for that is what living with René is like…
I’m yoinking “Nakato” for a cat OC okay bye
Aspen who is a snow colored Savannah and our other one (traditional with nice spots) is Kenya.
