Welcome to our long list of cat names starting with B!

Let’s preface the article by asking you to close your eyes and picture what the letter B brings to mind.

For us we thought about “boy, blue, break, bison, brown, and brawn”.

Quite weird and diverse, but can somehow all be linked back to animals!

Maybe you just like the letter B or everyone else in the family has this letter somewhere in their names, but for whatever the reason, we hope our list will provide you with some good and inspiring ideas.

While going through our name lists, one thing that is very helpful is to first find your direction by identifying whether you want to name your cat after physical attributes or personality.

For boys, we liked Bowser, as we mentioned before and Boo as well as Baloo.

On the other side of the coin, for little girls, we enjoyed Bijou, BB, and Belle. All names for a dainty cat.
