Bengal cat names: Male and Female

Choosing a name for a new cat is an enjoyable task that fills you with excitement. As you check name after name, you visualize what you think your little cat will be like when it grows up. But although it can be a creative and fun activity, it can also become a headache when you can’t decide between so many names, and even worse if you are not choosing the name by yourself because on top of that, you have to agree with someone else, oh boy,  it can be complicated to find the perfect Bengal cat name for your new pet.

When choosing a name, there are many variables to take into account, for example, the color of the cat, its physical appearance, its personality, if it resembles someone or something, obviously you must love the name, also the length of the word and that it is easy to pronounce, and of course the breed of the cat.

Each breed and color has a list of names that suit them more because of those characteristics. That’s why I am bringing you a list of great names for Bengal cats this time!

The Bengal cat originated on the Asian continent a few hundred years ago and, as you can imagine, is descended from the leopard, so you will find many names of Asian origin that refer to its heritage. I hope to help you in your task of finding the perfect name for your fur baby.

A tip before getting started

Before choosing a name, it is vital to think that cats have their language and ours is something foreign to them. Consider that your kitty is already making an extra effort to learn to associate a word with it. Don’t make the process so complicated, and try to choose a short name with simple syllables that don’t sound very similar to the name of another household member, human, or cat, as this can confuse him a lot.
