Last Updated on November 16, 2023 by Christian Adams

Cats are wildly captivating. If there is one pet that can manage to balance a number of vastly different characteristics and wrap it up in a stoically calculated package, it’s cats. If you are new to cat ownership, you will quickly learn how multidimensional and absolutely hilarious they are. From the outside, you might notice a regal disposition, poised demeanor, or sassy attitude, but deep down your kitty is just as loving, quirky, and comical as any other pet!

Almost everything our cats do can be interpreted as funny, from their serious faces to accidental mishaps. For anyone who needs convincing, we challenge you to adopt one of your very own (or babysit!) and watch them blossom into unintentional comedians. So for the silly cat in your life, we suggest a funny cat name.

The definition of funny might differ between owners, so we’ve made sure to include as many funny names as possible.

Garfield was the first feline to bring humor into the cat world and he just so happened to be orange. His matter-of-fact and work smarter, not harder mindset made him an iconic household name.

Finding the Right Funny Name for Your Cat

Choosing a name for your pet comes with a lot of responsibility. Surely nicknames will form along the way, but their given name will be one you use when introducing your cat to new people or making veterinarian appointments and is likely to be the one printed on the name tag dangling from their collar. Bottom line: It’s important. Funny names are cute and we’re all for them but keep them chipper and sweet. Embarrassing or harsh names should be avoided. After all, you love your pet and should be proud of their name! We hope that you were able to find a funny cat name from our list of faves that suits your witty kitty.
