Better Homes and Gardens says that finding the perfect name for a male cat is sometimes as easy as matching his name to his color. Casper is the perfect name for a nearly all-white cat, and Smokey is fitting for a gray cat. Other times, owners choose to name their cats after actions that define the cat. For example, if a cat loves to hunt and is always bringing home mice to its owner, a fitting name to consider is Hunter. If a cat is notorious for stealing things, such as hair bows, keys and bottle tops, Bandit is a great fit.
Another popular option, according to Better Homes and Gardens, is to name the animal after famous cats. In this case, some good examples are Felix, Fritz and Tigger. Felix was the name of a black and white cat that starred in 1920s cartoon called “Felix the Cat.” The name Fritz comes from a cat cartoon that was popular in the mid-1960s, and Tigger is the name of a hyper-active tiger in the popular Winnie the Pooh children's books.Learn more about Cats
