Male kittens are just as playful and entertaining as female kittens. Most people assume and associate kittens with females, so finding a male kitten name is pretty difficult. Here are ten popular kitten names for your lovely male kitten:

Cute Male Kitten Names

  1. Thunder- Kittens are fast, so this is a no-brainier. Naming your kitten Lightning is a bit common, and thunder sounds a bit more creative. Besides, thunder is a name your kitten will gladly stake claim to.
  2. Stewart- Who would not want to give their kitten the name of a rich butler or six year old kid. Stewart is a nice name for a kitten who sleeps too much to care about what is going on around them.
  3. Ed- This common name suits a cat who is nice and to the point. While Ed is not a particularly creative name, it is memorable and easy to pronounce for the little ones at home.
  4. Gary- For those who do not know, Gary is the name of the snail in Spongebob Square pants, which happens to resemble a cat. This is pretty creative for a cat just as smart and quirky as Gary.
  5. Melon- If you have a male kitten who eats a lot, melon may just be the name for him. It is nice and symbolic, and it has a nice ring to it.
  6. Future- Your kitten may be a time traveler, or may rip your household calendar. Whatever the case may be, Future is a nice, creative name for a nice and creative cat.
  7. Shadow- Kittens are some of the most mischievous animals in the world, so next time you notice that something was missing without any indication of where it went, just look for Shadow.
  8. Justin- Justin is a cool name. It resembles a nice laid-back individual. However, what if I told you that it works well as a cat’s name. You would not believe me.
  9. Laptop- This name is a bit peculiar, but with millions of cats in the world, who does not have a cat by this name?
  10. Paws- This one was just going to have to be on the list. With a name just as common as this, it is also very memorable for the whole family.

Popular Female Names

It is rather easy to name a female cat. So many people associate kittens with females so this is an easy one. Here are some popular female kitten names:

  1. Riley- This cute name is just right for an adorable, shy kitten who does not know how to be herself just yet.
  2. Blossom- Who does not love the Power Puff Girls? While Buttercup and Bubbles would make terrific names, Blossom stands out as the most pleasant.
  3. Angel- This name is really sweet. It would have been hard not to add it to the list.
  4. Candy- The other description could have explained this better, but having a kitten as sweet as candy would not hurt.
  5. Button- Your kitten likes to tear up clothes right? In that case, I think we just found her a new name.
  6. Princess- This name might make your daughter jealous, and vice versa. Since kittens only get the luxury of having only first names, give your cat this privilege.
  7. Love- You would be surprised how common this name is, and most people are too busy naming their kittens human names to notice.
  8. Tina- This name is very cute and suitable for just about any kitten.
  9. Precious- If your kitten is precious to you, then trying out this name couldn`t hurt.
  10. Hope- This name is pretty common, but it is nonetheless beautiful and suitable.

Cute Names Based on Character

For those who prefer to name their cat according to his character, here are several fun names:

  1. Fury- If you kitten likes to nibble on your fingers, here you go.
  2. Envy- Kittens get jealous too, and at some point they want your attention just like little babies.
  3. Happy- This name is a bit simplistic, but it gets the job done.
  4. Brainy- Some kittens can open jars and find things that you hide. Brainy is the name for them.
  5. Loco- Loco is Spanish for crazy for all of those that do not know.
  6. Dream- Kittens love to sleep and daydream. This sounds befitting.
  7. Cuddles- While it takes time for a kitten to get used to you, once they cuddle with you, you`re set for life.
  8. Frady- Never heard of the saying, “Don`t be a frady cat.”? Now you have.
  9. Fork- This name is for kittens who have a large appetite.
