Finding a name for your new cat can be one of the most entertaining parts of adopting a new pet, but it can also become challenging because of all the choices. Narrowing it down to a theme or letter can make your name-picking journey a much easier one. In this article, the names have been narrowed down to the letter “B.”

The letter “B” is an excellent start since it’s a common consonant that is easy to use, unlike the letter “Q” or “Y.” You can also break it down further into other categories or themes, which we have done for you below to help you find the best name starting with “B” for your cat.

What to Consider When Choosing a Cat Name

You can pick names starting with “B” inspired by your cat’s appearance, your favorite food or treat, or your favorite movie or character. You’ll want to decide if you want a short and sweet name or something more complex that can be shortened to a nickname. Keep in mind that cats generally respond better to names with two syllables.

Consider your other pets’ and family members’ names, and try not to choose one that sounds similar. For example, if you have a cat named Cody, choosing “Brody” may become confusing. At the end of the day, it should be a name that you enjoy. Take your time until you find the one; you will know when it’s right, and often, a name picks you.
