There are plenty of seriously fantastic feline names out there, but if you want your kitty’s moniker to be something really unusual, consider a funny pun! They’re entertaining, memorable and, when employed effectively, can be extremely fitting for your four-legged friend.
We looked at 19 unique cat names pulled from our Vetstreet database — which, for the record, is home to more than 4.6 million names of cats born between January 2013 and May 2016. We picked the names that appeared just once, then categorized those into various lists (like historical figures or characters from books, movies and TV).
