3 min read

Need a bit of name inspiration for your ginger kitten? Choosing a cat name for your furry friend can be difficult. After all, you want something that perfectly fits their looks and their personality! Don’t worry, we have a list of orange/ginger cat names to help you make this important decision. Take a look! 

Ginger cat names you’ll love straightaway

Ginger: perfect for a simple or spicy cat 

This one might seem a bit obvious, but we love how simple it is. For a chilled, cool cat, Ginger might just be the perfect name to describe them. If you love food-related cat names, remember that Ginger is a spice as well, making it the ideal match! 

Garfield: for those cats with attitude 

We all know the infamous Garfield! Garfield was an orange Persian cat, known for possessing an attitude, being lazy, cynical and having a vast cat appetite. If this describes your cat, Garfield is the perfect fit. 

However, we don’t advise your feline friend to eat lasagne or drink coffee like Garfield! 

Clementine: for cats with a sweet or sour personality 

If your ginger cat has a sweet personality but can turn sour in a split second, Clementine is the perfect name to describe their personality. Again, another one for those who love food-related names! 

Sunshine: for happy-go-lucky cats 

If your cat is super positive, you might describe them as a ray of sunshine. Sunshine is the perfect ginger cat name for happy cats with infectious personalities. 

Tigger: for boisterous and bouncy cats 

Tigger from the famous Winnie the Pooh book was known for having an exuberant, in-your-face personality that was super lovable. If your cat is easy to love and enthusiastic, Tigger is such a good match.
