Choosing Unique Girl Cat Names
Choosing a name for your new kitten or rescue cat is usually a fun part of bringing them home.
And if you like unusual names, it’s a great chance to run wild with the possibilities, and use a name (or names) which you wouldn’t dare to use for a human child.
After all, your cat is never going to have to spell their name in Starbucks.
But, there are some things to think about:
You will have to spell their name for the veterinarian, the groomer, and the cat kennel.
I have a guinea pig called Brienne of Tarth after the Game of Thrones character.
It suits her because they have the same color hair, and they are both totally badass.
But when I called to register her with the vet’s clinic, it quickly became clear my vet hasn’t watched Game of Thrones.
I repeated myself a few times, eventually started spelling it out, and decided to stop at just Brienne.
If you like making eccentric choices, but get embarrassed explaining them to other people, take that into account when picking a unique cat name!
Will your cat be an outdoor cat?
Cat lovers are torn on whether to let their felines outdoors.
The truth is, there are pros and cons to both keeping your cat indoors, and letting them roam around your yard and beyond.
You can read more about them, and better inform your own decision, in this article.
If your cat is going to be allowed to roam, think about whether the name you’ve picked is one you’re happy to shout across the neighborhood when it’s time for them to come in.
If it makes you feel silly, perhaps use it as an informal middle name instead!
