Blind Cat Names: 170 Great Ideas for Your Amazing Pet

For most cat lovers, it’s important that a name has a special meaning attached and truly does their cat justice, so picking a name isn’t always as easy as it sounds. The good news is that by narrowing down potential names to those in a specific category—in this case, names for blind cats—you can make things somewhat less overwhelming.

In this guide, we’ll introduce our absolute favorite blind cat names inspired by the following themes: sight, darkness, wisdom, and mystery.

How to Name Your Blind Cat

Sometimes, inspiration strikes out of the blue and a name just suits your cat to a tee. For some, it takes a little more time and thought. If you’ve decided to take inspiration from your cat’s blindness, this is already a great starting point because there are plenty of beautiful names you could consider, and we’ll share these below.

However, you can also factor in your cat’s personality, appearance, and backstory to help you decide on the perfect moniker. What is it about your cat’s character that makes them unique? Do they have any special quirks or defining physical characteristics?

For example, if your cat is very quiet and mysterious, you might consider a name like Whisper. Or perhaps your blind kitty had a rough past but is now in a loving home, in which case a name like Amada (female) or Amado (male), meaning “loved” or “lovable.” For more inspiration, check out the names below.
