Considerations for Picking Red Cat Names
Picking a great name for your red isn’t as cut and dry as you’d think it would be, on account of how many different breeds of red and orange cats there are, as well as how many name options exist!
The best name for red cat breeds isn’t necessarily the right type of name for orange cats and vice versa.
Even more, the right name for a calico that has mainly red hair, or a yellow cat with red stripes, tends to take a bit more consideration to come up with.
Below, we take a look at a few of the most crucial considerations for picking a great name for a red or orange cat:
Are You Naming a Red or Orange Cat?
Whether your cat is actually red, orange, brown, yellow, or a mixture of colors makes a big difference in what sort of names fits best.
For example, the name Old Yeller isn’t as suitable for an orange cat as it is for a yellow one.
Likewise, Red Socks, or Fireball, are more fitting for a red kitten than yellow or brownish-orange kittens.
What Additional Markings Does the Cat Have?
In addition to the color of your kitten’s coat, the stripes, dots, spots, and other markings it goes a long way in helping you select a proper name.
If your cat is red, with orange stripes, Tiger may be a perfect name.
On the other hand, if your kitten has a solid red coat, a name like Elmo or Ginger is much more suitable.
How is the Cat’s Attitude?
There are several additional considerations to take into account while choosing the best name for your red kitten, including your new feline friend’s personality and attitude.
Pay close attention to your new cat’s behavior, as it is one of the best factors on to base a suitable name. Is this kitten shy, or especially outgoing and energic?
What is the Cat’s Origin Story?
The origins of your new cat can have a huge impact on finding the right name. Keep in mind, while brainstorming for the best name for your new pet, where the cat came from, who its mother and father cat was, and how you became the new owner.
Any of the heartwarming or otherwise interesting or meaningful facts about the cat’s origins should be fully considered before choosing a name.
What Does the Cat Remind You of?
As this red cat’s new owner, it is your duty and privilege to pick the pet’s name. That is why your ideas and preferences are important.
This is your cat and it will have this name (most likely) for the rest of its life.
If this kitty reminds you of someone, or something, in particular, you should at least entertain the idea of somehow integrating these factors into the naming process.
Are You Rushing the Naming Process?
Lastly, but just as important as the other considerations listed above, is the question; are you rushing the naming process? Picking a name is easy, but picking a good name takes a bit more time and effort.
Coming up with just the perfect name requires even more insight and patience, of course.
Even more, the naming of your new, pet, whether a ginger cat, an orange cat, or an orange and white cat, for that matter, should be both exciting and rewarding. If you rush it, the joy is sucked out of the process.
