What makes a cat name weird? Well, that’s tough to say. It might be something that fits a dog more than a cat, or a random object that no one has ever thought of naming a cat after. We’ve compiled a list of weird cat names that are sure to make you chuckle – from puns to absolutely bizarre choices.
20 Names for Cats That Aren’t Very Cat-Like
Does your cat behave like a dog more often than like a feline? If so, you might want to consider one of these popular dog names. They’ll make everyone turn their heads around and look for a non-existent dog they think you’re calling!

These names might not be weird in themselves, but they’ll sound weird given to a cat! We think a name like Clifford will work hilariously well for a big orange cat. And for a white cat with black patches, a name like Pongo or Snoopy would do the trick. Have you found a name for your kitty? If not, keep scrolling for more unusual name ideas.
Editor’s Note 🪶I knew a guy who just named his cat Dog. Pretty clever! He said it was better than his former cat’s name, Cat. Who knows what other animals he might have had! A bird called Mouse? A hamster called Fish? A guinea pig named Rabbit? Let’s leave it there. 🐰

Frequently Asked Questions

How about Pickles, Sir Scraggles, Fluffy McFlufferson, Captain Cuddles, or Browniebottom? Don’t these names sound silly? If you want to take it even further, why not give your cat a silly middle name too? For example, Captain Gouda Cuddles! Or Pickles von Cheddar! Let your imagination run wild and have fun with it.

Funny names from history can also inspire weird cat names. For example, Crystal Metheny is a real woman from Florida. Another woman, Jessica Mavis from Gold Coast, named her daughter KVIIIlyn (pronounced Kaitlyn). But probably the funniest name I’ve heard about was Sincerely Yours 98 Pascual from the Philippines, who also has siblings named Spaghetti 88 and Macaroni 85.
