Best Hipster Cat Names for Males & Females

According to the Macmillan Dictionary, a hipster is defined as “a young person who lives in a city and pays a lot of attention to trying to seem cool and not part of conventional society, for example in the clothes they wear, the music they listen to, and the food they eat.”

Of course, we all know that cats don’t even have to try to be cool, right? They just are! Hipsters could definitely take a lesson from them!

One last thing, these hipster cat names are tongue-in-cheek fun and not meant to offend anyone.

Many of these are also traditional names that appear on other lists. They just happen to be popular “hipster” names right now, too.

I am a big fan of Anais Nin, so I’m really loving that name.

Scarlet is a great name if you’re a fan of the Marvel Avengers series (or love to name your cats after witches).

My #1 favorite, though, has to be Ophelia, as she’s my favorite Shakespeare character.
