100+ Persian Cat Names: Ideas for Adorable, Posh & Regal Cats

The most notable of the Persian cats are the ones we see in the commercials: fluffy, regal, and the purest shade of white. Did you know that Persian cats can be many different colors? Blue, brown, red, cream, tortoiseshell, orange, and even in some cases black! They have adorable, short, little noses and are famous for their long luxurious hair.

Purebred Persian cats are also considered show cats, hitting the groomers on the regular to keep their locks and nails in pristine condition.

Now, when it comes time to give your new velvety friend a name that suits both their posh exterior and still manages to capture their individual personality and temperament, we know the options are endless. You’ve come to the right place for the best female and male Persian cat names, as well as those specific to their white fur, and even for those mixed with the Himalayan breed.
