Once again, I’ve included both good wizards as well as a few of the nastiest of the nasties!

Although, maybe naming your kitty after the darkest wizard ever to walk the earth isn’t really a good idea!

Of course, you can always call him “He Who Must Not Be Named” or “You Know Who!”

While I shared my top ten favorites above, it really is hard to choose just one of these Harry Potter cat names!

I feel like I need to go adopt 100 cats so I can use them all! Of course, that would be absurd…right?
