It's pretty obvious that someday, I'm going to be a crazy cat lady. I'm probably not going to have more than about three cats at once, because even my craziness has its limits, but I love cats. And when I inevitably need names for those cats, where better to turn than books? I don't have to make up any names - authors have done that for me!
Now, not all of my cats are going to be named after fictional characters - my cat now is named Mozart, and I'm pretty sure that my next cat will be named Tchaikovsky, so I have a bit of a composer theme going on, too. But I'm sure I'll have enough cats throughout my life to do both! Thanks to Sky @ Sky's Reading Corner for helping me brainstorm some of these and narrow them down.
And since everyone loves looking at cute cat pictures, I've included one ADORABLE cat for each name. And now I'm sad because cats aren't allowed in dorms and I miss having a cat. Honestly, when I get out of college, I'll probably get about five cats at once just because I've been deprived for so long! Anyway, onto the names!
1. Crookshanks - How could I possibly have a literary cat and have it not be named after the first fictional cat I loved? And if I have a cat named Crookshanks, I'm that much closer to being Hermione Granger, which is the ultimate goal, really.
2. Gatsby - Or maybe...Catsby? I know, pretty awful, but I think it's cute.
3. Katsa - I know, another cat-related name. I promise I'm more creative than this. But again, such a cute name! And imagine if she has mismatching eyes like Katsa! Although maybe naming a cat after a character who could very easily kill me isn't the best idea...
4. Sansa - Really, any Game of Thrones name is a great name for a cat. But Sansa will always be my favorite, so of course I'm naming a cat after her.
5. Queenie - I've never met a cat who didn't think that she was queen of the world, so why not give her the name to match?
6. Cinder - This would be perfect for a little grey cat!
7. Karou - Too bad there aren't actual blue cats to match Karou's magically blue hair. But even so, Karou is a pretty great cat name!
8. Luna - This is very appropriate, since I can absolutely see Luna Lovegood as a crazy cat lady.
9. Feyre - Nothing cat-specific about this one, but it's a really pretty name!
10. Laia - Again, nothing cat-specific, but I can totally see a cat named Laia with colors kind of like on the cover of the book!
Do you like cats? Are you going to name your future cats after book characters? Which cat is your favorite? (I think mine is Sansa but I LOVE THEM ALL.) Tell me in the comments!
