What most of the general public would call an "orange" cat, true cat fanciers use the term "red" for the color.
There are also different kinds of orange (red) cats that can be found. A "red tabby" has orange stripes on a cream ground color. The orange stripes may be dark reddish orange, or light "marmalade" orange.
Interestingly enough there is not a "truly solid orange" cat because the tabby pattern is not totally suppressed in orange cats, so you might see indistinct "shadow" tabby markings if you search for them in the right light. Also, some people think that color orange is gender specific to males, but that is not true.
But which ever type of orange cat you have, you still need a name that fits your boy or girl kitty - right?! Well, as you read and view the list on this page, you will find more than 100 richly colorful pet names for orange cats. Whether your loving feline friend is a beautiful solid or a stunning multicolored, all the names found here are as full of personality and character as most orange cats are - Meow!
