100+ Tiger Striped Cat Names: Ideas for Unique & Exotic Cats

We understand how exotic a beautiful tiger stripe looks on a kitten’s coat. If your cat has stripes, it could mean a few things. They could have the tabby gene, which is a trait that can be found among any breed, or they could be a notoriously stripey breed such as the Bangle, American Bobtail, or Maine Coon.

When choosing an exotic cat name for your feline, you might be inspired by their patterned fur. Below we have compiled a list of our favorite tiger-striped cat names for males and females and a few based on their stripe colors.
