It’s a shame that black cats get such a bad rap. They’re so adorable and, as anyone who’s ever had one will tell you, the old superstition about black cats being bad luck couldn’t be further from the truth.
If you’ve just given a black cat a new forever home, chances are you’re in the market for a name. Fortunately, there are so many unique black cat names to pick from.
While you can always go with a cute and classic name like Jet, Shady or Oreo, there are also tons of trendy options inspired by popular movies and TV shows. An example: A 2021 poll by Rover found more people were picking names from the Marvel Universe including Natashia and Alexei from “The Black Widow.”
Pick a name that leans into your mischievous feline’s witchy side (psst, take a peek at these witch names) or opt for something funny to show everyone that black cats aren’t nearly as spooky as they’re made out to be.
Below, we’ve got all the male, female and unisex black cat names in one spot, and one is sure to be just purr-fect for your fur baby.
