The names on my Halloween themed cat name page come from many different places from the ancient gods, to William Shakespeare, to old movies, TV shows, and books to new movies and books, and even some from Marvel Comics and Anime. They are names that have become familiar to us and have a twist of magic and some even evil to them. They are fun names for a cat and some folks use them as names for kids too.

MEOW. Read over the list and see what names appeal to you and when you meet your new cat or kitten, you just might have a name picked out already. It doesn't always work out that way, but it's fun to pick and plan anyway.


What Did I Name My Cats?

I didn't come up with some spooky, evil, or mystifying names for my Halloween cats. One is a beautiful silver gray cat, a Russian Blue, with gorgeous amber eyes. His witchy name is ... LOVEY.

My other cat is a black furred beauty with green eyes. Very Halloween looking. Very menacing, definitely could be a witch's familiar. She is a tiny little thing weighing in at 4.5 pounds. Her name is Little.

Even though I love Halloween, my cats called to a different theme when I was naming them. I always thought I would name a dark gray or black cat Pyewacket after the Siamese cat in Bell, Book, and Candle. Pyewacket was a familiar in that old film. But no, in each case the name of my cats just came to me when I first held them (or very shortly after) and all the names I had ever thought of went right out of my head. LOL. Let me know what you decide to name your cat!

If you find a good Halloween themed name for a cat that's not on my list, feel free to share it with the rest of us. I always enjoy hearing new ideas!
