Best Halloween Inspired Cat Names
When we think of Halloween, we associate this children’s favorite holiday with candy, and spooky things.
Cats, especially black ones, also have a tie to Halloween.
While I don’t believe black cats bring bad luck, the silhouette of a black feline has become iconic among Halloween motifs.
Whether you get your inspiration from classic movies or cartoons such as Dracula and Sailormoon, or from any famous children’s book with a cat, many of the names we choose for cats come from nostalgia.
Let’s take a look at some Halloween inspired cat names just in time for the fall!

CHECK: Bookish Cat Names
Names such as Wizard, Spook and Demon obviously speak to the more naughty and devilish cats.
But if your feline isn’t so much the embodiment of evil as it is a sweet and loving yet mysterious furball, then Pumpkin, Orion and Magic are more suitable.
If you have a more whimsical cat, Boo, Hex and Merlin are great choices.
For our fur baby, however, we went along the lines of more mysterious choices for our enigmatic cat.
Names such as Spirit, Shadow and Ghost are among our favorites.
Now some if not all of the names above can be unisex, but we have also compiled a list of names just for little girls.
