Q&A: What are some COOL names for a black cat?

Question by Brianna:What are some cool names for a black cat? I am looking for a unique name for my new black cat – looks like the cats in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, so I’d really like to tell you something Egyptian. I thought Anubis was a cool name, but I prefer his name shall consist of not more than two syllables (per call). Thanks for your suggestions! PS: Preferably not common as “Midnight” and “Spooky” Best answer: Reply

  1. Sphinx. Nile, Gaza, Giza…

  2. I think Cleo or Cleopatra sounds way cool!

  3. Bastet-Egyptian cat goddess




  4. Call him Tut!

    Here’s a list of cat and kitten names:


    Good Luck!

  5. Bast is an ancient egyptian god
    bast was the beautiful cat goddess.

    also another god was Osiris and he was the Lord Of The Dead.

    also Serqet. she was the Scorpion Goddess and her statue protected the sarcophogus of King Tut.

    A list of the Egyptian Gods and Goddesses:

  6. Isis – Head Egyptian goddess

    Salem – my black cats name!

  7. well. good names would be Salem and Shadow. or, instead of naming him Anubis. take off the A and just call him Nubis. i think its a pretty cute name… :)

  8. you can name your cat whatever you like

  9. Banaded

    These are very unique and I like the tongue in them.
    I hope you like them too!

  10. It’s black? Name it Snow. No one will see that coming.

  11. shadow

  12. you know why don’t you base it off their personality, i have four foster black kittens and that is what i did…..the same ole black cat names get old.

  13. merlin

  14. How about “Isis”?
    (pronounced eye-sis)

  15. Our black cat also has an Egyptian look about him. With Bast being the name of the Egyptian cat goddess, I originally considered naming him Sebastian, but husband wasn’t keen on that name. (We agreed upon Merlin instead.)

    If you want something unusual, what about Sayyid? It means master in Arabic, and would be quite appropriate for a cat :o )

  16. Ramses

  17. Shady
    Big B

  18. Hey, how about Ra, the sun God.

    Funny thought anyway…

  19. Here are some useful tips in choosing a name for your cat.
    - Choose a name that’s both easy to say and one that you are happy calling out.
    - Pick a name that will grow with the pet. For example “Kitten” may be less appropriate for a full grown cat.
    - Wait a few days to study your pets behavior. The personality and appearance of the cat may assist here.
    - Pick a name that the pet can easily recognize. Animals respond better to one or two syllable names, (especially names ending in a long E sound, like “Gracy“).
    - If choosing a long name keep in mind the shortened version. A long name will inevitably be shortened, but it may ruin the effect that you were originally looking for.
    - The pet’s breed heritage can provide some useful inspiration. For example: Siamese, Balinese, Korat, and Burmese are Oriental breeds; Don Sphynx and Peterbald are Russian; Abyssinian is Egyptian; Chartreux is French; Bombay is British; Devon Rex is English.

    In my opinion, it’s more meaningful when you name your pet yourself. Check out these websites for tons of pet name ideas… you can search by gender, color, meaning, and first letter of the name.
