101 Ridiculously Cute Name Ideas for Your New Kitten

Male kittens are just as playful and entertaining as female kittens. Most people assume and associate kittens with females, so finding a male kitten name is pretty difficult. Here are ten popular kitten names for your lovely male kitten:

Cute Male Kitten Names

    • Thunder
      Kittens are fast, so this is a no-brainier. Naming your kitten Lightning is a bit common, and thunder sounds a bit more creative. Besides, thunder is a name your kitten will gladly stake claim to.
    • Stewart
      Who would not want to give their kitten the name of a rich butler or six year old kid. Stewart is a nice name for a kitten who sleeps too much to care about what is going on around them.
    • Ed
      This common name suits a cat who is nice and to the point. While Ed is not a particularly creative name, it is memorable and easy to pronounce for the little ones at home.
    • Gary
      For those who do not know, Gary is the name of the snail in Spongebob Square pants, which happens to resemble a cat. This is pretty creative for a cat just as smart and quirky as Gary.
    • Melon
      If you have a male kitten who eats a lot, melon may just be the name for him. It is nice and symbolic, and it has a nice ring to it.
    • Future
      Your kitten may be a time traveler, or may rip your household calendar. Whatever the case may be, Future is a nice, creative name for a nice and creative cat.
    • Shadow
      Kittens are some of the most mischievous animals in the world, so next time you notice that something was missing without any indication of where it went, just look for Shadow.
    • Justin
      Justin is a cool name. It resembles a nice laid-back individual. However, what if I told you that it works well as a cat’s name. You would not believe me.
    • Laptop
      This name is a bit peculiar, but with millions of cats in the world, who does not have a cat by this name?
    • Paws
      This one was just going to have to be on the list. With a name just as common as this, it is also very memorable for the whole family.

    I’m getting a 7 week old Flame Point Himalayan Jan. 2nd. I think I’m going to name her HEMI CAT, after the most iconic engine to come out of Detroit, ever.
