50 Hilarious and Interesting Cat Names Because Fluffy Is Boring

Naming a cat, or any pet really, can sometimes be more difficult than it seems. Eventually you have to call them something, and unfortunately, most of us aren't creative enough to move past things like Tiger, Kitty, or Fluffy. This is sometimes compounded by the fact that toddlers and small children do a lot of naming of family pets. They see spots? Looks like your cat or dog is Spot now. Sometimes you mean to give them a regal name but you make a joke and it sticks. For those of us looking for something a little more clever, though, these hilarious cat names should do the trick.

They always say that laughter is the best medicine, but you know what else is? Social media fame. That's right. With the right moniker, you too can be the proud owner of an Instagram or TikTok star. Money isn't everything, but who would really complain if their hilarious cat brings in oodles of cash over social media? Not us, that's for sure. Here are some unique and funny cat name ideas that might even turn your feline friend into the next social media sensation.
