Arabic Cat Names: 190+ Much “Kneaded” Names And Meanings

“My precious purrincess needs a name that fits her purrfectly!” you mutter under your breath, fighting the urge to smother her in cuddles and snuggles. Picking out a flawless name for the loveliest addition to the family can be quite a daunting task. “How about Arabic cat names?” a thought escapes your mouth.

That’s not a bad thought, though! What’s more creative than an Arabic name with a meaning that describes your fluff better than any word in the English language? And, with everything else that’s been bugging you, you might as well put the same amount of work into coming up with a fitting name, right?

But there are a bunch of things to consider before you head off and announce to the world that your fluff’s name is Mrs. McFluffer! And, there’s hardly anything worse than ruining your cat’s chances of ruling the neighborhood by bestowing her with the most generic cat name – Oliver, Leo, or Bella. “Argh, ewww!”

And, what are these things that you need to consider, you might be asking? Well, for starters: What kind of purrsonality does your fluffy friend have? What does she look like (not that you should ever name her Amber, Butterscotch, or Ginger)? Essentially, what makes her… her?

Now, we realize that these things might not be as easy as they seem. How can someone even think of a name that’s not generic with the number of names circling around!?

Fortunately, that’s why we’ve got your back with our Arabic cat name suggestions. We’ve gathered a bunch of names with thought-provoking meanings that’ll ensure an endless cycle of explanations every time someone utters “But, what does that mean!?”

Ready to dive into our guide to choosing the perfect name for your fluff? Let’s go!

How to choose the purrfect name?

Arabic Cat Names: 190+ Much "Kneaded" Names And Meanings

Oh, Arabic cat names have the most bewildering meanings! Now, you could take the easy way out in the situation and pick a name you like rather than a name that fits your little fluff to a T, but where’s the fun in about that!? And, where’s the je ne sais quoi in that!?

Now, with that freakout out of the way, we can move on to the whole “figuring out how to choose the purrfect name” part of the article, right?

First things first, here’s what you shouldn’t do when choosing a name for your four-legged friend: rush things and complicate things. Trust me, you’re better off taking your sweet time thinking of a name that makes sense and doesn’t take two to three business days to say out loud.

Don’t get too funny, racially offensive, culturally offensive, or misogynistic… You get the point, right?

You don’t want to spend the following 10 to 15 (hopefully even more) years repeating a name you’re embarrassed to utter. Not to mention that your joint Instagram account would never go viral with a name like that!

With that said, here are some things you should do when choosing a name for your fluffy friend. Consider your fluff’s personality and appearance – these are the two things most humans notice when hanging out with a cat (given that you want to name your cat something related to her personality or appearance).

On the other hand, consider something that brings you happiness. Whether that’s your celebrity crush, your guilty pleasure Netflix binge, or even the food that you could eat for the rest of your life. Why not name your cat Meredith Grey because you’re a fan of Gray’s Anatomy? (Taylor Swift did!)

What are the most “ameowzing” Arabic cat names for your fluffy friend?

And, when you’re looking for something a little more subtle than naming your cat after your favorite beverage, you can always consider Arabic cat names. Think about it – you can choose the baddest out of all badass names and nobody would even bat an eye.

“But where does one find an Arabic name for a precious purrincess?” We thought you’d never ask! We’ve gathered a bunch of names (and their meanings) to help you pick out the purrfect name for your favorite, fluffy friend. Dare we say, you might even be a single deep dive away from a viral kitty name!
