Naming Your Ginger Cat – Quick Guide
Coming up with the perfect name for your ginger cat can be a bit more challenging than you may have anticipated.
Thankfully, we’ve put together a quick guide to walk you through the process of selecting the perfect name idea for your orange cat, in the following section.
Read on, below, to discover the most important considerations to make before naming your ginger cat:
Naming a ginger kitty is a bit different than naming most sorts of cats; there are tons of names out there, but only so many of them are perfect for an orange cat.
That’s why the exact shade of ginger that your cat is makes such a big difference when you are in the naming process. Fireball is a great name for a red cat, but, for example, isn’t so great for a mainly yellow cat with a few red stripes.
Stripes or Marks
The shape, color, and a number of stripes and markings visible on your new cat may also help you choose a cool ginger cat name.
An orange cat with dark stripes, for example, is the perfect example of a cat that should be named Tiger. Whereas a name like Simba or buttercup is better for a yellowish or orange cat with no stripes.
One of the biggest factors that you can rely on to help discover a great name for your ginger cat is its behavior. We tend to get stuck on the way our pets look when naming them. But, their behavior is often an even better clue as to the right name.
The color of your cat’s eyes is another great source of inspiration to tap into while you are searching for the right name for them. In combination with your cat’s coat color and markings, the color of its eyes may inspire a great name.
The thing about naming your ginger kitty properly is that there are so many sources of inspiration for great names if you are paying attention, that it can be overwhelming.
Some of the best places to look for ginger cat naming inspiration include:
- Red-headed gods and goddesses from mythology
- Red things in nature (fruits, mountains, animals)
- The names of red-headed people in the Bible
- The names of redheaded celebs and movie stars
- Words that mean “red” in foreign languages
- Red objects that you own and hold special meaning to you
- Avoid picking a trendy name that will soon become boring
- Honor your ancestors if they were redheaded
- Do additional research on all things red, and red hair-related name
Remember, it is up to you to track down and hand your cat the perfect name.
Keep in mind all of the above considerations, and tips, while you go through the process and you are sure to land the right name in the end.
