Flowers are beautiful, unique, and fill you with joy—just like your cat. So, why not draw inspiration from all the beautiful blooms and name your cat after one of them? This list features 32 different flowers that make for excellent cat names, whether you have a girl or a boy kitty. If you're having trouble deciding, first go through this list and choose some of your favorite cat names. Some of them happen to also be birth month flowers, so you could also look at your pet's birthday for assistance. After you've narrowed it down to a few choices, see which one best fits your cat's personality. (After all, kitty's can be extremely different. Some are aloof, others are mischievous, and some cats are quite loving.) If you're still struggling, try calling out each name and see how your kitten responds. They might be able to help you decide on a cat name.
