How many times have you heard that humans don’t choose cats, but cats are the ones who choose their humans?
Well, they give us a small privilege of choosing their names, which are we thankful for.

Let’s start with the most simple name that is at the same time the color of the sea – Blue. If your cat has beautiful blue hypnotizing eyes or gorgeous blue-gray hair, this name is perfect.
If your kitty has a temper, is often grumpy and not hesitates to scratch a little from time to time, this name suits perfectly.
Cats are known for not being patient and they always show their true emotions. So, Stormy could be a great name if your cat fits that description.
We are not thinking of King Arthur, the legendary British king. This name is actually the name of the Aquaman, the very popular movie about an heir of Atlantis, underwater kingdom.
This powerful name could be suitable for a strong, brave, large, male cat, just like the Aquaman himself.
It is the name of the famous Portuguese explorer, so it is a great name for a cat that likes exploring its surroundings.
If your cat likes to wander around (and hopefully always return home), this is a name for you.
At first, you might think that we are referring to the actor Tom Cruise, but actually, we are thinking of the real cruise across the sea.
If your cat likes laying around in the sun all day doing nothing, this might be a good name, if we disregard the fact that cats don’t really like the water.
You might know some humans named Marina, but it is, also a cute and unique name for a female cat.
Marina is the name for a cat who likes to be static, doesn’t like to leave the house and could lay all day, staring through the window.
Or the Roman equivalent Neptune was the god of the sea. So, similar to Arthur, this name is suitable for a strong, male cat.
This is also a reference to the movie Aquaman. Atlanna is a queen of Atlantis and a mother of Aquaman.
Atlanna is a name for a strong-minded, independent cat that rules the space she lives in and defends it by any means possible.
If you have a cat that is a leader among your other cats or other pets, it seems that you have one Atlanna.
Pearls can differ in color or shape, but they are usually round, white and glistening.
Pearl is a cute name for a white cat and also a compliment to its beauty and value that is bringing to your life.
Last, but not least is the name Knots. This could be a nice way to name a clumsy cat.
Since the sea is very unpredictable, it is no wonder that there are a lot of nautical names suitable for cats.
The same goes for the boats or the ships when they are cruising the sea.
They need to be steered and let’s face it, the cats steer our lives in some way, regardless of their color, size or personality.
Well, at least, they think they are entitled to and we let them, no matter if they are grumpy or cheerful, explorer or static, lazy or diligent.
