Choosing unique black cat names!
It’s a fun thing to do.
Often a name just jumps out, or the cats personality dictates the name.
All of these names have a ‘black cat’ theme.
Love this quote about naming a cat from the story, 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.”
