How to Name Your Siamese Cat

There’s no right or wrong way to name your cat. You might peruse our list below and find a name you like the sound of right away, or you might want to get to know your cat before settling on a name. Some owners like using their pet’s physical appearance for inspiration, while others choose something entirely outside the box.

Don’t rush the decision-making process. Your kitty won’t know that they don’t have a name, so take your time picking the perfect one. And honestly, if you’re anything like me, your cat is likely to collect a handful of nicknames, none of which are related to their official name. I have a Finnley on paper, but he’s lovingly referred to as Bean, Beanie Baby, Beaner Weiner, and Mr. Tubs on a regular basis.

Names Inspired by Color

Siamese cats are a pointed breed, meaning they have a lighter-colored body with darker-colored points on their extremities. There are four traditional color points: seal, chocolate, blue, and lilac. Here are some name ideas if you’d like to name your cat after its coloring.

Seal Point

Seal point Siamese cats have a creamy-beige coat that will often darken over the course of their lifetime. Some mature seniors wind up with a very dark brown back that might even blend right into their tail coloring. Their points should be an espresso-like color that looks almost black in indirect light. “Seal” essentially means “dark brown points.”
