Often a cat’s personality dictates its name. The colour of the cat is a major factor when thinking of just the right cat name.

Have fun with these unique names for black cats.

I love the quote below about naming a cat from the story and movie called, Coraline. I think it pretty well sums up any cats.

“What’s your name,’ Coraline asked the cat. ‘Look, I’m Coraline. Okay?’
‘Cats don’t have names,’ it said.
‘No?’ said Coraline.
‘No,’ said the cat. ‘Now you people have names. That’s because you don’t know who you are. We know who we are, so we don’t need names.

Cat quotes and funny sayings and memes are everywhere, many clever ideas.
