In search of a perfect name for your cat

Before moving on to the list of names in Greek mythology for cats, we are going to share some ideas to keep in mind when naming our feline companion. They are as follows:

  • We can choose the name based on physical or psychological characteristics of our cat as soon as we receive it at home. For example, a shiny black can be called Patent Leather or a cat with a Fury character..
  • Some people like to repeat the name they have already given to a previous deceased cat. Names as classic as Micho or its feminine Micha are used over and over by caregivers.
  • Sometimes a defect, a physical peculiarity or even a disease can determine a name and be the memory of the strength that the cat has had to overcome difficulties. For example, OjoPocho for a one-eyed kitten or Tiñoso for one who has suffered that disease.
  • Our environment is a good source for possible names. We refer to place names, that is, the names of places.
  • In the case of cats, we can choose longer names than if it were a dog (voiced and short names are preferably recommended to facilitate the understanding and attention of the dog), although we can also choose short names. Contrary to what some people think, cats do understand and respond to their name.
  • If we adopt a cat that already has a name on it, we can change it without any problem. Just like you will get used to us, you will get used to a new name and it can even help you break away from a past that may have been complicated.

Next, to help caregivers make this important decision, we are going to offer a wide list of names taken from Greek mythology and that can fit our future cat or cat very well. There are multiple options to choose from, there are more or less short, simple and more complex, known or not, with more or less loudness but, of course, they all coincide in their charisma, so that, surely, they will print character to our cat or cat.
