Black Cat Names

If you're looking for fresh, inventive names for your black kitties - then you've found the right spot! Here you will find more than 100 distinctive, original names listed for cats that are black so you won't be stuck with just good old "Blackie" or "Shadow" to call your dark haired pet.

Because your newly adopted family feline deserves more, and all black cats, no matter their breeds, are so gorgeous and yet mysterious, he or she should have a special name.

After all, any shade of black, whether it's a deep black, a blue black, or a gray black, is beautiful and visually stunning, so take your time to review and search through lists below and see if any of them fit or capture your cat's unique appearance, kinetic energy, and personality! And what's great, is that all of the names below are perfect for small baby kittens or older big cats. 

In any case, a cat's coat, whether it's long or short, is his or her crowning glory. The color, texture and loving sheen of any cat's fur are what makes her or him unique; and are also some of the first things people and friends notice, and make comments about.
