If you’re looking for one-eyed cat names that celebrate your little survivor’s resilience, we’ve got you covered!
We took inspiration from some of history’s & literature’s bravest and fiercest characters who lived full lives with one eye.
We also threw in some incredible names that mean survivor, hero, or warrior for good measure.
Let’s check them out!

Yes, they’re probably the most well-known single-eyed mythological being, so it makes sense.
However, it’s a bit too on the nose for us. So, we found their actual names for you.
We also include a good mix of archer names (archers know you only need one good eye to aim true), as well as other amazing strong names that we love.
