Best 100 Female Cat Names Perfect For Your Furry Friend

5 min read

Choosing the right cat for you can be a challenge in itself, but finding the perfect name for your four-legged friend can be even more difficult. But don’t worry, we have got you covered with our list of best female cat names, which are perfect for your feline friend no matter their personalities! 

Making sure you choose the right name isn’t always about finding a name that sounds nice and suits their personalities, it is also about finding a name that you’re happy to shout out loud when calling them home. 

So, take a look at our list of female cat names to find the perfect one for your feline friend. 

Best female cat names 

1. Luna

Coming from the Latin name for moon, Luna is a stunning female cat name to suit your magical feline. Gaining popularity because of the quirky character, Luna Lovegood from the well-loved Harry Potter series, this is a name that's being favourited for cats, dogs and even human babies.

2. Lulu

Lulu is a charming name which comes from the Arabic word for 'pearl'. It's been a cherished name since the '60s, thanks to the firecracker singer, Lulu, famed for performing 'Shout'. We think it makes an absolutely adorable name for cats too.

3. Zelda

Fans of gaming will find themselves enamoured by the name, Zelda. Taken from the fierce princess in the Legend of Zelda series, this female cat name is ideal for your little four-legged warrior.

4. Buffy

Those with a feisty kitty will find the perfect name with Buffy. The name comes from the cult TV show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer which follows a sassy vampire-fighting girl on her quest to battle the forces of darkness. So, if you have a feline that can live up to the iconic namesake, Buffy will make the ideal choice.

5. Daisy

There's nothing sweeter than a kitty with a flower name. Daisy is an adorable name which will suit all cat breeds and colours and is sure to complement them from kittenhood all the way to adulthood.

6. Tallulah

Tallulah is an elegant female cat name which will suit posh breeds such as the Siamese or Persian. Meaning 'leaping water', the name rolls off of the tongue and feels all at once regal and cute - which are two characteristics that perfectly sum up our cats.

7. Raven

If you're looking for a black cat name, Raven might be just what you're after. Taken from the large, black bird of the same name, Raven makes an incredibly enchanting moniker.

8. Bella

Coming from the Italian word for beautiful, Bella is a cherished female cat name. According to John Lewis Pet Insurance, Bella was actually the second most popular name chosen by their customers!

9. Molly

Originally used as a nickname for Mary, Molly is now a cute name in its own right. Meaning 'star of the sea', it's a name which is loved by many pet owners, and we can see why.

10. Poppy

Topping many of the lists for the number one female cat name is Poppy. This floral name isn't quite as delicate as Daisy and brings a certain sense of feistiness. As it takes its name from the stunning red flower, we think this name would best suit ginger cats or those with a red tinge to their coat.

Tips for naming your cat

When naming your cat, make sure you choose a name that you won’t get bored of hearing after a while. Cats can live for a long time, almost 24 years. So, you want to make sure you pick a name you won’t mind hearing for that amount of time. Choose a name that you also feel comfortable calling out and sharing with friends. 


Also, make sure the name you choose is easy for your cat to understand, as well as yourself. Picking too obscure a name can sometimes come with some complications. If you are having a tough time naming your cat, take a look at their mannerisms and cat-specific behaviours over the first few days of having them. This should help make your decision a little easier! 

That's our list of best female cat names! Did your favourite name make the list? Or are you now more torn than before? Whatever the case, we're sure you'll pick the perfect cat’s name to suit both its looks and personality.
