Persian Cat Names

The Persian is one of the oldest cats in existence, with records dating back to times of Pharaohs in Egypt. It is generally believed though that the feline originated in Persia, now known as Iran.

Over the years, through selected breeding the appearance of Persian cats has changed quite a bit from the time when they were first introduced to the rest of the world. 

Their traditional doll face has been developed into a shortened muzzle and flattened high nose. The Coat has become thicker and long with a variety of colors and patterns including silver, gold, tabby, solid and bicolors.

Persian cats are noted for their gentle temperament and the ease with which they adjust to new environments, making them ideal pets to show. They are quiet and, although not shy, tend to be undemonstrative. They are quite loving and affectionate and make wonderful companions.

Below we have listed a variety of names for Persian cats that can be used for older cats, kittens, males and females alike. As with so many pages on this site, we haven't been able to list all the possible names for Persian cats, but we are adding all the time!
