When I saw ‘Names for Bengal Cats’ as subject matter, I was a little sceptical.

I mean, there are so many options one can come up with spontaneously why would one need help?

And it’s a cat- it’s not going to care particularly.

But then reading and thinking about it, my view changed somewhat.

You may want something original and clever that taps into your cat’s appearance, gender, ancestry or even personality.

Additionally, you may want to give it a cat name it can recognise.

This long list then gives you plenty to think about and includes (some) origins and meanings should they be important to you.

If you want to know how/why we named our Bengal cat ‘Hazel’ read the blog post ‘A Bit of Background’.

‘Big Cat’ Names For Bengal Cats

Apparently, the Bengal cat breed was brought into existence to negatively impact the fur trade.

The belief was, if people owned pet cats that looked like those in the wild, there would be a greater reluctance to buy and wear big cat fur.

For more on Bengal fur patterns see ‘Bengal Rosetted Patterns: The Beginner’s Guide‘.

The Bengal resemblance to big cats, albeit on a smaller scale, offers a great potential source of cat names:

  1. Aslan: Turkish Origin. Means ‘Lion’. A major character in The Chronicles of Narnia series
  2. Bagheera: Hindi. Derived from the word ‘Bagh,’which means ‘Tiger’. Confusingly, the name of a Black Panther in The Jungle Book
  3. Caracal: A slim, medium-sized wildcat with long canines, tufted long ears and tan/light brown coloured fur
  4. Cheetah

  16. Tiger/Tigress

  18. Zaara: Depending on the source, this girl’s name means either ‘a flower that shines with brilliance and light’ or ‘brave’

Names Based On Gender

These have been spilt into names typically associated with a specific gender or those that can be used for any kitten.

Some- like Neptune, would be typically associated with a male Bengal kitten as it’s derived from a male Roman God, but would also work well for a female.

I have not been consistent with this, and placed names where I see fit.

Or course any name can potentially work if you so choose it (and your cat’s not really going to care), so use these lists ‘loosely.’

Within the domesticated cat world, the Bengal cat stands out.

Which is why you may be seeking the perfect cat name to match.

This list of 384 (or so), covering a myriad of themes should offer some inspiration, and I’ll more than likely add to it in future, although I’m sure you can appreciate, writing a list of cat names gets a bit tedious.

Or perhaps like me, you’ll just want to think of a suitable Bengal kitten/cat name yourself, for your own reasons.

So, what will you name your Bengal?
