Top 10 Anime Names for Cats

This post contains affiliate links. If you make a purchase through these links, we earn a small commission at no extra charge to you.

1. Chi

You might remember Chi from Chi’s Sweet Home, which shows all the antics that the little cat gets up to, making it the perfect name for your new pet.

All Chi wants is someone to play with and to be petted, which is probably similar to how your cat acts.

2. Jiji

If you’re a fan of Kiki’s Delivery Service, you will want to choose the name Jiji for your cat.

In the Japanese version of the anime, he is a helpful companion to Kiki, while in the US version he can be a little cheeky.

Then again, aren’t all cats at times?

3. Luna

Without a doubt, Luna is a famous anime cat that most people will have heard of, especially if they love Sailor Moon.

With her midnight black coat and crescent moon on her forehead, she is one of the cutest anime cats around.

She was always by the Sailor Scouts sides in the anime, making her the perfect sidekick.

4. Artemis

I couldn’t put Luna on this list and not mention Artemis, who is also from Sailor Moon.

As the white guardian cat, he will often grant the Sailor Scouts magical items to help their quests, along with the help of Luna.

If you are planning on having both a white and a black cat, why not name them Luna and Artemis?

5. Mao

You May Also Like

I love the name Mao, which is inspired by a character of the same name from Darker than Black.

Fans of the show will know that Mao lost his human body and spent years in the body of a black cat instead.

The name also translates into ‘cat’ in Chinese, which makes it the perfect choice for your feline.

6. Meowth

I don’t know about you, but I am a fan of Pokémon. Many kids grew up watching Ash and Pikachu’s adventures in the anime and rooted for them to beat Team Rocket.

While Meowth may have been a bit naughty in the show, it makes for a great cat name!

7. Sakamoto

Sakamoto is from the anime Nichijoum and is well known for wearing a red kerchief, who just so happens to be able to speak.

He can be a little bossy in the anime, but is cute, nonetheless. If you think Sakamoto is a bit of a mouthful, you can always shorten it down to Saka as a nickname.

8. Kuro

In the anime Ao no Exorcist, which translates to Blue Exorcist, Kuro is a spirit cat that was modeled after nekomata, a mythological Japanese being.

Kuro is unique in that it has a split tail, but the name is one of the most unique and easy to pronounce ones on this list.

After all, you don’t want to get tongue twisted if they are doing something naughty.

9. Kamineko

While Kamineko may like to bite in Azumanga Daioh, he does look cute from afar and has a great name.

What I love most about it is that you can have two nicknames, either Kami or Neko, both of which I think are great names for a cat.

10. Carla

You may recognize the name Carla from Fairy Tail, along with her friend Happy.

In the anime, the two aren’t exactly anime cats, as they are magical beings, but it is close enough in this case.

This is definitely one of the more ‘human’ names on this list.

And there you have it, the cutest cat anime names that you can use for your new kitty!
