I was having a lot of trouble coming up with a name for my Siamese kitten, but he ended up choosing his own name.
While having dinner with my husband, he was napping in my lap. When I started discussing something being a little bit spicy, this little kitty started going crazy! After repeating a few other names I had picked out and no reaction at all, I started talking about spicy food again and he went nuts! So we named him Spicy and his personality is definitely fitting.

Now I have a Seal point named Tsunami because he causes destruction & leaves horror behind. He even attacks my Goldendoodle.

I have had many Siamese cats over the years, all with wonderful names.
Samantha (Seal point), Tina (Blue point), both childhood cats and family named.
My first adult pair were Chloe (Chocolate Tortie Point) and Sabre (Red Point), my only boy, he picked me. Sabre was such a great name for him, he reminded me of a Sabre Tooth Tiger.
My second pair were Mia and Kiki (both Chocolate points and I still have Kiki) – both fantastic names. Both very oriental type names.
My current kittens are from the same litter, Chai (Blue point), she is turning into a wonderful Chai type colour. And her sister Indi (a Lilac Point) short for Indigo the colour. Enjoy naming your Siamese, and enjoy them.

I’ve had twoi female opart Siamese cats, Jasmine and Suki. Over the years my cats names were Mr. Cat (my Dad’s choice), Smudges, Pandora, Chester (the pester), and Buddy. My new kitten, a Seal Pointe, needs a cute girl name.
I had 2 sisters, 1 Seal and 1 chocolate point. Their names were Mu-shoo and Mulan from the movie. I recently had to put Mu-shoo down due to a thyroid condition. My daughter got me a male lynx point to take her place to keep Mulan company, but I can’t find a name to fit him…. I was considering Shang; which is Mulan’s boy freind – or Shoto, Totoroki, or Katsuki from the My Hero Academia.
