245 Lord Of The Rings Cat Names: Perfect Names For Your Hobbit

245 Lord Of The Rings Cat Names: Perfect Names For Your Hobbit

When you think of Lord of the Rings, chances are you envision Elijah Wood wearing prosthetic ears and playing the most popular hobbit, Frodo Baggings. Or, you trace back to the scent of Tolkien’s books and the ease with which he brought the mysticism of Middle-Earth closer to you. Lord of the Rings cat names, though? Why not?!

Hear me out because there’s no chance nobody ever suggested you named one of your fluffy offspring after a character from the greatest high fantasy of our time.

Whether you’re a fan of hobbits, elves, dwarves, orcs, trolls, or ents (the list seems to go on and on), you have a bunch of adorably dorky names to choose from.

And, not only are dorks trending right now, but dorks with precious purrincesses sporting Lord of the Rings names are bound to score a date with whoever they want.

Who wouldn’t want to date someone who can remember every line of the LOTR trilogy – they can definitely remember your birthday, your anniversary, and your dentist appointment!

What’s more, a name presents more meaning and significance to a cat’s life than you might think. When you name your fluffer Serena Wanderwoodsen, chances are she’s going to become a catfluencer that wears fashionable outfits and winks at the camera.

But, when you name your mischievous monster Narya, she’s bound to become a little hero. Whatever the case might be, both the books and the films have amassed a considerable number of followers.

And, granted you’re one of them, we’re bringing you a bunch of Lord of the Rings cat names sported by characters that have graced our silver screens (and our bookshelves).

Top 10 Lord of the Rings cat names based on the popularity

245 Lord Of The Rings Cat Names: Perfect Names For Your Hobbit

Sauron might not have used the words “one kitty to rule them all,” but we know that’s what he meant. But, when you want your kitty to become the ruler of the neighborhood Arda, you need to choose the right name for her. She can’t possibly become the queen when she’s named Katy Purry, right?!

And, to be completely honest with you, choosing the right name for the most valuable member of your family seems to be a bigger challenge than providing her with food, water, and shelter.

Not only do you want to pick something that describes her and sets her up for a bright future, but you want to pick something that sets her apart.

Consequently (granted that you’re as big of a fan of LOTR as everyone else seems to be), you might want to start with something that’s bound to let everyone know what the two of you are going to be for Halloween. Aragorn and Arwen, Gandalf and Galadriel (controversial as they might be), or Frodo and Sam are my purrsonal favorites.

Whatever the case might be, here are the top 10 Lord of the Rings cat names based on the popularity of the characters.

1. Aragorn

Aragorn’s the heir to the throne of Gondor (which, right off the bat, sounds like a name that hits the spot) and one of the leading characters.

Bestowing your fluffy friend with such a powerful name wouldn’t be a mistake, at all. Not only does the character carry the entire trilogy on his shoulders, but he’s got every quality a man (or a cat) could desire.

Aragorn proved to be a brave soul and a noble warrior that does everything he can to protect everyone around him. He’s strong, authoritative, and understands the art of negotiation – which seems to be pretty much every quality you want your beautiful beast to possess.

2. Legolas

Oh, the heartthrob of the trilogy!

When I watched The Fellowship of the Ring for the first time (and there were many, many times after that), I was surprised to catch feelings for a character that was the opposite of everything I considered attractive at the time. But, Legolas Greenleaf was something else (and Orlando Bloom made the fantasy come to life purrfectly).

So, when you want your furry friend to sport a name that’s the epitome of agility, bravery, and strength – you’ve got yourself a winner. Legolas certainly made himself a desirable character when he took down the enemy while sliding down the elephant’s back and shooting arrows at the same time.

What a champ, right?

3. Gandalf

245 Lord Of The Rings Cat Names: Perfect Names For Your Hobbit

Who else would bring heart and humor to your otherwise boring existence than a kitty bearing the name of one of the oldest and wisest characters of the LOTR trilogy? He’s the leader, the one everyone turns to for advice, and the one that’s the driving force behind everything everyone does.

Who wouldn’t want the ultimate Lord of the Rings cat name to be Gandalf, then?

Not to mention that Gandalf doesn’t seem to be the only name he goes by! That means you have a bunch of possibilities to choose from and pick something that works for you (as a devoted enthusiast) and for your kitty (as someone who has to bear the name for the rest of her life).

It’s a win-win situation, don’t you think?

4. Gollum

Oh, Gollum! He’s a deformed, horrible-looking creature that became popular because of the complexity of his character. He’s creepy, mean to everyone who dares touch “his precious,” and wicked. And, he’s one of those characters that make you let out an “ew” whenever they appear on the screen.

But, hear me out. Gollum’s pretty much one of the most recognizable characters with the most heartwrenching scenes you could think of (the moment he recites a poem about Bibo, maybe). And, Gollum’s a great name for a Sphynx, an Oriental Shorthair, or even a Devon Rex. Why not!

5. Samwise Gamgee (or Sam)

Samwise Gamgee has to be one of the most relatable and likable hobbits out there! He might not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but he certainly puts a lot of heart into everything he does – and that’s why we love him. And, to set the record straight, Samwise and Frodo make for the best Halloween costume for you and your kitty!

To make everything even better, you don’t have to name your kitty Samwise – you can name her Sam, Gamgee, or even Samwise the Brave. Whatever you decide to do, know that she’s going to grow up to be the most loyal, trustworthy, and devoted friend you might ever meet.

6. Frodo Baggins

Of course, the list wouldn’t be complete without Frodo Baggins!

Samwise might be the most relatable hobbit out there, but Frodo’s the most famous one. Frodo’s the ring bearer and the protagonist of the trilogy – and the one that stole our hearts with bravery, extraordinary courage to fight everyone and everything, and perseverance.

Whether you read the books or watched the movies, you probably rooted for Frodo from the very beginning. And, that’s why you shouldn’t shy away from naming your precious purrincess Frodo – even when she’s a girl because who cares about gender norms and stereotypes?!

7. Gimli

Gimli’s a dwarf but he’s got the biggest heart out of the bunch! He’s one of the bravest and strongest characters that stood out for the loyalty he felt for Thorin Oakenshield. He’s one of Middle-Earth’s greatest characters and that’s why he deserves a spot on the list.

And, you might not think of Gimli when you look at your feline friend. But, when your feline friend’s a Siberian Maine Coon, she might fit the description with her long, luscious coat and distinguishable whiskers. Not only that, but the two of you could have the ultimate Gimli and Legolas friendship for life.

8. Pippin and Merry

245 Lord Of The Rings Cat Names: Perfect Names For Your Hobbit

“But, that’s not one character! It’s two!” You don’t have to tell me that, but wouldn’t you feel weird separating two of the most bromantic characters of the trilogy? Pippin and Merry are names that would be purrfect for twins or best friends that do everything together.

Now, these two characters certainly made the trilogy worth watching for those of you who love a great friendship trope. And, even when you don’t have two kitties, nobody’s stopping you from choosing one of the two names – either would be adorable and fitting for a true, brave, and courageous hobbit.

9. Éowyn

When you’re looking for Lord of the Rings cat names for your precious purrincess, you’re hoping to cross paths with some of the most mind-blowing female characters out there.

While the trilogy offers a couple to choose from (Éowyn being one of them), you might be disappointed to learn there aren’t that many ways to sugarcoat the lack of diversity.

But, that being said, Éowyn does deserve her place under the spotlight. She’s a strong and worthy warrior and desires to fight at every given moment – if that sounds like something your mischievous monster would meow, you might have yourself the purrfect name.

10. Saruman

“Saruman, don’t sniff your droppings!” Wouldn’t you want to scream that sentence from the top of your lungs every time your fluffy friend decides to do that? Sure, Saruman might have been one of the villains of the trilogy, but he was certainly one of the greatest characters.

Whether you would want to name your cat Saruman because of the cunning purrsonality or the mischievous nature, you wouldn’t be making a mistake. Saruman’s a great name even when you’re someone who hasn’t watched a minute of Lord of the Rings – you have to agree that the name slips right off the tongue.

Lord of the Rings cat names based on gender

Lord of the Rings offers you a bunch of characters to choose from, whatever your preferences might be. Maybe you want a name for your easy-to-love, soft-spoken, and kind kitty? Name her Gandalf, without a doubt. Perhaps you want something different for your devil’s spawn, the mischievous monster? You might want to go with Sauron or Saruman.

Notice how most of these names are fitting for a male kitten? That’s because Lord of the Rings doesn’t have that many female characters.

Whether that’s because the world of fantasy doesn’t care that much for strong female leads or because of something else, you might have a tough time finding a truly “girly” name for your kitten.

But, who says you have to pay attention to gender? Name your fluffer whatever you want and whatever works best for the type of purrsonality he or she possesses.

Without regard to the gender they assumed (they’re orcs and ogres, after all), here are our favorite picks of Lord of the Rings characters that would make for the greatest cat names ever.
