Because Black Cats Deserve Good NamesIf you’re having trouble coming up with an inventive name for your new black or dark-colored cat or kitten, then you’ve come to the right place. Don’t worry if your cat isn’t exactly the darkest shade of black possible—the names below can be used for virtually any variation of the color, from deep black or blue to dark grey. The important thing when trying to pick a good name for your dark furred feline is picking one that fits well with their personality. I’d also like to suggest that you play around with different combinations of names, especially if you want a longer, more majestic type of name for your pet.
I brought home my fourth black kitty a few days ago. I must have some form of black cat ocd lol. Still waiting for her to inspire the right name but I have a black and white female called Saga (Sags for short), a black female called Lois (aka LoLo) and a black male called Manny (aka Mr Manny Mankins). They all respond to their names and come when called.Have toyed with Nova, Magda, Kaela, Cilla, Inca and Delta for the new baby but they don’t quite fit. I’m sure she’ll inspire something soon and it will reflect her affectionate and playful personality. Black cats are real characters and I’m lucky to have mine.

Although you may previously have heard of some of these black cat names, we think you’ll find at least a few that you may not have thought of before. Some are very traditional or old-fashioned, while others are a play on words that have anything to do with being “dark”. Some of these names may even strike you as silly, but chances are they have already been used by someone, somewhere. If nothing else, we hope you draw enough inspiration from this list to create an original black cat name for your own pet.
So, since these cats seem to stand out amongst felines, it only seems right that we should take special interest when assigning them names. Yes, you can name a black cat virtually anything you want to, but sometimes it’s fun to choose cat names according to the characteristics of the individual animal. In this case, that dark fur presents us with our first inspiration.

Love the layout of this page. Well done! BTW, my black cat name is here – you have ‘Spook’ – our cat was ‘Spooky’. Besides being coal black all over (also half-Siamese, so had the Siamese ‘Yowl’ voice), our friends who had the ‘mama cat’ were originally from England and once lived in a haunted house and would tell us what she called her ‘spook stories’. So “Spooky” was the perfect fit for a name!
I rescued a pregnant mama who was too young to be a mama and named her Saia. She gave birth to 6 beautiful all-black babies. Mama and her entire family adopted me and their names are:Africa (f)Nubia (f)Rasta (f)Shadow (f)Beltaine (f) (May 1, their b-day)Celeste (f)(Everyone is spayed/neutered now. I encourage people to adopt black cats from kill shelters, their adoption rates are much lower. Sadly, more black cats die in shelters.)My 12 year old black cat, Ebony, accepts Saia and her babies as family. Everyone gets along amazingly well.
In Western history, however, black cats are looked upon as a bad omen and as a symbol of evil, and are often correlated with witches. Europeans believed that if a black cat crosses your path, it’s an omen of death and misfortune. But their evil work wasn’t always in the form of a cat. European folklore also said that these black cats could transform into human shape and act like a spy or courier for demons and witches. In some areas of the continent, people would burn black cats to be safe.
Turns out, the folklore behind a black cat varies from culture to culture. Black cats are actually considered good luck in Japan, for example. They say a woman with a black cat will have many suitors.
We currently have a solid black cat named (Black) Cloud. His brother, Lucky, who passed in Sep 2010 was a brown tabby with horseshoe shaped stripes on his sides. Yesterday we picked up two more all black cats. My son named his Nox (Latin for night) and we’re trying to come up with a name for my daughter’s cat.
Just had my precious black cat put to sleep, his name was Taliesin. I will get another black cat soon but having trouble finding another name, must be a boy. There will never be another as special to me tho.
I named my black cat, Chester. Like the Chesire cat from Alice In Wonderland because his yellow-green eyes were so bright, they almost looked like were glowing. If he was in a dark room and closed his eyes, it was almost like he disappeared. He passed away two weeks ago. I miss him.:(
Our black cat is named Smokey. Three years ago, I rescued him from a raging brush fire when he was 2 weeks old. He lost half his tail and part of an ear in the fire. He is now the most affectionate, loving cat we have ever had!
Just adopted today and brought home a male 3yrs. 6mos., shelter cat. The adoption agency had noted Anxiety as his only issue. Hey, what do you expect. I’d be in worse shape with all the poor thing has been through. He is hiding now in his safe room and don’t expect to see much of him for a few days. I’ve only got one really good glimpse of him so far. Thinking of calling him Winston .
I’ve had two black cats one was named Lyra, the other is named Horus. One is a constellation, the other is an Egyptian god. Great cats deserve great names.
I have a Tuxedo cat, so he’s mostly black, but he came with the name Tex and I kept that. However, I think Shadow would have been a great name for him because he follows me everywhere.
Huh love the star wars ones but I love Naboo,Vader, and Noir but I can’t decide then I finally decided on one and it was Coffee since every. Morning my black cat would always like too lick out of my cup of coffee.
Years ago there was a young black stray male kitty in my neighborhood. This was during the time “Roots” was on TV. He was terrified of everyone.When I was finally able to catch him, I named him Toby, after the slave Kunta Kente. I picked that, because in the beginning, he was always on the run.
Black cats are quite famous, or perhaps infamous, across many cultures. The ancient Egyptians believed black cats brought good luck, while many Europeans believe they carried bad omens. You can still find people today that adhere to one belief or the other, as well as a good portion of the public that doesn’t buy into either superstition. Love them or hate them, black cats garner more than their share of attention.
Very cute lens. I love the appearance of blacks cats. Our big Bombay cat, Blackie, went missing one cold November evening 5 years ago. Disappeared as though he never existed. We still miss him. Check out my lens Cats in the Cradle to read how we came to adopt him, as well as others, including Bebe Zorro.
