  1. Arwen and Atticus are great. Aslan too (I like the A ones??) but those are all good cats names, really.

  2. Great names Lauren! Atticus made my list this week too. Aslan is a fantastic choice.

  4. I actually had an employee at the last library I worked at who had a grandson named Atticus. I love the idea of a cat named Gatsby. That's cool. Great list!

    When I saw "Aslan" I read "Asian" and I was like "she wants to name her cat Asian ?" Lol

  7. These are great names for a cat. What is 'Lying Cat' from?
    I can picture a tiny kitten, one of those Munchkin cats, named Aslan. That'd be fantastic.

  9. I really love the name Atticus. I could see myself naming a kid that, but I think the expectations for said kid would go through the roof. I've always love Arwen's name. Great list!

    1. So much attached to that name to give it to a kid for sure! :)

      Thanks, Alicia!

  10. Ahh such a great list, I love these names! If I ever get more cats I'd love to name them Loki and Luna - they sound so cute together! :)

  11. These do seem like they'd make really great cat names! Especially Puck, that would just kind of be the perfect name for a cat, wouldn't it? And of course Lying Cat lol because Lying Cat is just a great character!

  13. Yes to Kell! Imagine being able to say "Snuggling with Kell" on a status feed and refer it to you and your cat. Oh gosh...I am so doing this in the foreseeable future...

    And haha, Lying Cat! That would definitely be a great conversation starter.

  19. I wish I had been a part of this when I worked for the SPCA, I was always trying to think of names for the litters of kittens each year. Gatsby and Atticus would have been perfect

    1. That would be an awesome job - naming the animals. :)

  20. Ooh, good choices! I would love to name a cat almost any of these. Except maybe Loki. I'm pretty sure that would be inviting disaster of the mischievous feline variety.

  21. My dog's name is Atticus! I attest to it being a brilliant pet name! Except he's really not clever like Atticus Finch ahhaha...but I blame this on because he ran into a wall when he was a puppy and probably lost his brains. -_- (Just kidding, he's an adorable ratbag. <3) Also Gatsby is a great name! Although if I ever had a cat I'd call it Catsby because PUNNY.

    1. Haha! That's a good name for a dog, either way! :) I was so close to naming Finn Gatsby - but I'd probably call him Catsby for the same reason! :D

  22. Arwen is definitely a good name! And Aslan, just to imagine the cat as a majestic lion and dress him in a lion once in a while :)

    1. If I ever tried to dress up my cat, he'd probably murder me...! ;D

  23. Puck made my list too ^_^ And always loved Gatsy as a pet name!

  24. Atticus! I have seen that one a few blogs and I feel like a dum-dum for leaving it off of mine. But to be fair to myself, I was moreso thinking of girl names, as that was my focus when I was pregnant with my daughter. Love Gatsby too. Awesome list!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have Loki in my list as well :D
    Luna is one of my favourite name for cats!
