You’ve made the big decision to get a cat – or you have decided to expand your kitty family.
Greek cat names are a terrific option – but there are so many from gods to goddesses to greek places and food plus standard greek names.
I’ll take you through some things to think about to help you decide which of those names is the best one for your new kitty.
A big fluffy cat calls for a name that says big and fluffy with rounded “O”s like Cosmo. And the color of your cat or its markings can help you make a choice.
A great cat name may reflect your cat’s personality. A super active cat will seem a bit of a disconnect if it is christened Hypnos after the god of sleep.
If your cat is a Persian or a Siamese it may well suit a prince or princess name like Aphrodite. However, a small kitty breed may seem odd if called Maximus.
You will use your cat’s name an awful lot so the fewer the syllables the better. Also, this will be easier for your cat to absorb and remember.
If you use a name like Hermes you’ll constantly be torn about whether or not to pronounce the H – which could get embarrassing if you’re dealing with anyone in France.
