Male (Boy) Cat Names

A male cat

Male cats, by their nature, are stronger, louder, and more active. At the same time, adult males often get lazy; they are more prone to obesity. Their temper and behavior can vary significantly, depending on the breed, lifestyle, age, and even type of food. When looking at a small fur ball, it is hard to predict what he is going to grow into. It makes the naming of a little he-cat a complicated issue. While there are some universal names, such as Buddy, Max or Tiger, you may want to choose something special. We hope our list of top-50 male cat names will become a good starting point and boost your imagination.
