Names for white kittens and cats have a world all their own: names that mean white as well as names that reference white things like snow, stars, and diamonds. A white female cat might get a girls' name that means white such as Bianca, Guinevere, or Fiona. Names for a white male cat might include Finn, Gavin, or -- how cute is this? -- Albus. We also love nature names such as Frost, Snow, or Pearl for white cats. Here's further inspiration for perfect names for white kittens or cats.
Cool Names for White Cats
by Sophie Kihm
Wild nature names are the untamed names of the nature name category, conjuring up images of mountain ranges, fields of wildflowers, and wild animals with names such as Everest, Poppy, and Fox.
Along with Fox and Poppy, other wild nature names in the US Top 1000 include Aspen, Blaze, Ember, Ivy, Meadow, Onyx, River, and Sky. Among the up-and-coming wild nature names that might appeal are Marigold, Oak, Prairie, and Wolf.
A wild nature name could be just right for a free-spirited, independent wild child. If you’re inspired by the vast, undomesticated elements of nature, these wild nature names are worth considering.
Western names, cool names for cowboys and cowgirls, make great names for dogs and puppies too. If your dog loves to run the range, or just wishes he could, consider one of these Western dog names to give him or her some cool country attitude.
Word names -- basically, words used as names -- are a growing class as parents rush to find truly unique baby names for their children. While you'll find word names among nature names and day names and occupational names and color names and spiritual names, most of those collected on this list don't fit neatly into any category. You'll find even more word names in our lists of Nature Names, Place Names, and many other lists in the category Nature, Place, and Word Names. Finally, a word on gender: English words are not gendered and so most of these word names can work for both boys and girls, even if we have only one gender noted here.
Literary names have become a very stylish group in recent years, and here's an offshoot that's gotten less attention. With credit to @Vana , a berry who created an original list of similar names, these names all relate to writing itself. Writing-related baby names can connect to poetry, plot structure, and literary devices. If you're a writer or simply a book lover, one of those original word names connected to writing may be, well, right for you.
