The uniquest names for boy cats
You have an unusual kitten, don’t you?
He is the only one in the whole world who knows how to wake up at 5 a.m. and run around the bed like a rabid bison. He is the only one who has a unique voice of seven octaves, which is unspeakably happy for you and your neighbors. He’s done the leather chair in two weeks, and that’s a winning bid! Of course, such an exceptional talent needs an exceptionally original name.
If your kitten is a boy, then pay attention to such names:

5 tips for choosing a kitten’s boy name
- Looking under the tail
The first thing to do before naming a cat is to determine its sex. In every family there are legends about cats that were Varki, and became Vendy, about cats that were Plane, and became Pamela. Consequently, determining the sex of the kitten is an important point in choosing a perfect name.
If you have a female cat – 500+ names for cats.
- Determining the type
Human names can be given. The main thing is that the name shouldn’t cause negative emotions.
In addition to human names, it’s recommended to give associative names. Names that come to mind when looking at the animal and its behavior. More information below.
- Look at the cat hair
The red pet does have no chance to be named anyway but Orange, Sunny, or Altyn (Turkic Gold).
The white animal would be a beautiful Marshmallow (or Kefir).
The black & white cat, regardless of gender, can be called Domino.
And the smoky cat is Gray. (The Name with meaning. Probably can be chosen by a movie buff)
But all 50 shades of gray, white, and point don’t matter if you don’t plan to be guided by coat color when choosing a name.
Choice based on the color of the coat:
- Observing the character of your pet
If the kitten has pronounced character traits, it is better to bet on them. Let the active kitten get the name Wagner (and because he wrote “Flight of the Valkyries”), and his antipode – the bourgeois Baron.
- Don’t forget about the breed
If a pet has an official name written in the passport, the owner will either shorten it to a more comfortable name or invent a new one. A pedigree cat also needs pedigree names such as Mercutio, Saffron, Martini, and Napoleon.
You can further narrow the funnel of options for a cat. So, a Persian cat could be Percy, and a Selkirk Rex cat could be Sue (what else would you call a curly-haired cat?)
Based on the breed:
- for British cat;
- for Scottish cat;
- for Persian cat;
- for Sphynx cat;
- for Siamese cat;
- for Maine Coon.
How to Teach Kitten to Respond to a Name
To quickly train a kitten to respond to the name, reread the works of physiologist Ivan Petrovich Pavlov. He is the same man who formulated the principles of unconditioned and acquired reflexes. You will need both of them.
Or you can remember your high school biology classes and try to develop a conditioned kitten’s reflex-based on an innate one.
Calm down, you can do it!
The conditioned reflex (the expected response to the sound of a kitten’s name) is developed on the basis of the unconditioned reflex (joy over the food reward).
Sound of the name – smell of food – sound of name – feeding – praise.
That is, the baby is called by name before he enters the kitchen, but then when the food is already in the bowl!
