350+ Awesome Ragdoll Cat Names For Your Fluffy Furrend

350+ Awesome Ragdoll Cat Names For Your Fluffy Furrend

“My Ragdoll kitty is coming in three days and I don’t have a name yet! I want to give her the best name in the world, but somehow I have a feeling like I’m gonna do a bad job. Quick, cat gods, aid me in my misery. What are the best Ragdoll cat names?”

If you have found yourself in a similar situation, then fear not my friend! I’m here to help you find the purrfect name for your gentle prince or princess.

Naming a cat can be very stressful. A lot of forethought has to be put into it because the cat will carry that name for the rest of her life. Imagine naming your kitty Tiffany only to find out she obviously gives out Melanie vibes. What a nightmare would that be, right?

Okay, I’m probably being too dramatic with this one, but choosing the right name is indeed hard. Especially if you’re adopting a kitten and aren’t still sure what kind of personality he or she will grow into.

Fortunately for all of us concerned cat parents (with a tad bit of OCD tendencies), cats are usually marked with the general characteristics of the specific breed they belong to. So, Bengal cats will mostly be energetic, Birmans will embody their role of lap monsters and Siamese cats will be jealous queens.

And Ragdoll beauties, the ones whose ideal name we’re looking for today, will mostly be affectionate, gentle, calm, and social. They are said to be perfect life companions, cuddly but not overly demanding, with an almost dog-like personality.

And a cat like that deserves an appropriate and meaningful name!

Below, I’ve selected a decent amount of interesting cat names, and I’m sure you’ll find the one that’s destined for your Raggy fluff. So, let’s not waste any more time – it’s time we find the perfect Ragdoll cat name for you!

Best Ragdoll cat names

350+ Awesome Ragdoll Cat Names For Your Fluffy Furrend

With their friendly, well-tempered, and affectionate personality and super-soft fluff, it’s no wonder these little bundles of joy are many cat parents’ first choice. Looking like living stuffed animals, Ragdoll cats are loved by many children around the world. And, there’s a place for them in the heart of grownups, too.

This breed originated in the 1960s in California, and it has quite an interesting, almost legend-like history. It’s said the Persian breeder from Riverside, Ann Baker, saved a semi-feral white cat resembling Angora after she was hit by a car. She named her Josephine and bred her with other breeds she owned.

The car accident that Josephine went through supposedly left her immune to pain, leaving her to have a relaxed body that seemed to go limp when picked up. Ann said Josephine was flappy like a ragdoll, so the name stuck, and her offspring were called inherited the name.

Sometimes, they’re also referred to as Josephine’s daughters.

Here’s a fun fact for your next pub quiz session: Ann supposedly copyrighted the name Josephine, and now it can only be used for this breed.

If, however, you’re not a particular fan of the name Josephine, I’ve prepared many other interesting names that will for sure tickle your fancy. So, let’s see what are other suitable Ragdoll cat names.
