220+ Unique Swedish Cat Names You’ll Simply Adore

220+ Unique Swedish Cat Names You’ll Simply Adore

Well, if you’re here, you either have some Swedish blood within you or you greatly appreciate Nordic cultures. Whatever it may be, you’re apparently on a quest to find the purrfect name among Swedish cat names. And I am about to help you with that.

Naming your kitty can be very hard and stressful since deciding what aesthetic you’d like to pursue is almost impossible. There are so many options to choose from and so many things you like that you probably often end up confused and on the verge of giving up.

You want a name that’s cool and modern, but also one that would be eternally relevant. You don’t want your kitty to be named after a character from a certain TV show that would be irrelevant 5-6 years from now.

Then, there’s also your cat’s personality and physical appearance you have to take into consideration. It would be weird to name your kitty that’s always calm after Hulk, for example. Some might appreciate the sarcasm, but still, it’s better to align your kitty’s character with the desired name.

Luckily for you, there are many categories that combine creativity, relevance, and meaningfulness, and in which you can find the perfect name for just about any cat. And the rich Swedish culture is exactly that!

I’m not sure what brought you here. Maybe you always knew you’ll give your kitty a Swedish name. Or maybe one of the Norse gods inspired you in your sleep last night. Either way, I’m glad you’re here, and I’m sure you’ll find what you’re looking for.

Not to toot my own horn, but I’ve made quite an impressive selection of Swedish cat names. I’m sure by the end of this article, you’ll have a name in mind!

Make sure you have your pen and paper ready! By going through these names, I suggest you write those you love the most. Therefore later, when done, you’ll have your own little personal list of Swedish cat names to choose from.

Cat names inspired by Norse mythology

Before the residents of the Nordic countries converted to Christianity, they had their own pagan religion whose center stemmed from legends and myths about powerful gods and goddesses. That pagan belief is today known as Norse mythology.

Even though its stories are widely popular today (think about Marvel’s Thor, for example), the true origin and meaning still remain a mystery. Many people debate about the true meaning behind some events and whether the stories Vikings told were true or not.

However, we are not here to be historians. We’ll leave the mystery behind it to be revealed and the complexity of it discussed by someone else. All we’re here for is some inspiration, so we could name our feline buddies.

These ideas below might not be your standard Swedish cat names, but do consider them! Imagine how cool it would be to have a little furry deity named after some powerful Norse god or goddess (or other mythical creature).

1. Odin – the greatest among the Norse gods

2. Thor – the powerful god of thunder

3. Frigg – Odin’s wife, a paragon of beauty, love, fertility, and fate

4. Heimdall – known as the ‘shiniest’ of all gods due to his white skin

5. Týr

6. Bragi

7. Idunn

8. Baldr

9. Loki – a mischievous god who could shape-shift and can take up animalistic forms

10. Njord

11. Freyr – a symbol of prosperity and pleasant weather conditions

12. Freyja – goddess of love, fertility, and beauty

13. Hel – the goddess and ruler of the Norse underworld

14. Skadi – goddess of hunting

15. Gerd

16. Surtr

17. Yamir

18. Mjölnir – this one is neither a god nor a mythical creature; this is Thor’s hammer

Viking cat names for your furry warrior

220+ Unique Swedish Cat Names You'll Simply Adore

As we all probably know, Vikings were seafaring riders, conquerors, settlers, and traders who originated from countries today known to us as Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Iceland. Their passionate journeys and expeditions took them from Baghdad to North America, where they arrived before Columbus.

They were motivated by fortune, prestige, and power and sought them in material things like gold, silver, and gemstones, and in the form of land.

They were no strangers to violence, and they earned their fame by being fierce and ruthless. They were resilient and persistent in achieving what they set out to do.

Our kitties might not be entirely like them, but these two do share some personality traits. Our cats will also stop at nothing to get what they want!

Below, I’ve listed some cat names inspired by some of the most famous Vikings that raided this world.

1. Ragnar Lodbrok

2. Bjorn Ironside

3. Halfdan Ragnarsson

4. Sigurd Snake-in-the-eye

5. Ubba Ragnarsson

6. Ivar the Boneless

7. Hvitserk

Cat names inspired by Swedish pop culture

If you couldn’t care less about Norse mythology and Viking raiders and shieldmaidens, or if none of those names tickled your fancy, don’t worry! I have another list for you!

There’s probably something from Swedish pop culture or culture in general that you like. And if not, I’m sure at least a name or two will appeal to you.

The entire Swedish society is all about equality and individualism which are definitely a good ground for the development of a rich and diverse culture. They are dominant in various fields such as movies, literature, sports, and music. And they are also advocates of environmental protection.

The thing I came across as researching this topic and something I grew to love and appreciate the most, is another Swedish word we’re about to learn. There’s this word that Swedes use as a leitmotif, and it’s lagom – meaning not too much and not too little. Just the right amount!

In essence, lagom explains a sustainable lifestyle that is based on social awareness and moderation.

Now that we have learned our last Swedish word of the day, lets jump into our final list of Swedish cat names.

1. Abba – oh, your kitty’s gonna be singing “Gimme, gimme, gimme a treat after midnight!” for sure

2. Robyn

3. Tove Lo

4. Lykke Li

5. Avicci – for a kitty who enjoys good music

6. Zara Larson
